Pushing Back Against Trump

Trump is a bully. He’s going to push and push, becoming more outrageous by the day, until Congress, the press, and the voting public push back. He will never give ground voluntarily, never respect the other side, never look for a win-win.

Much of the pushback from Congress is going to have to come from Republicans, because they have the numbers. Right now they’re either too intimidated, or too cynical — finding the Trump trade-off worthwhile as long as they gain ground on their signature issues like ending women’s reproductive choice, killing the Affordable Care Act, privatizing Medicare.

Ryan, McConnell et al are playing a very dangerous game.
