When against all odds Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton and assumed the presidency, Republicans were ecstatic, they assumed they would enact legislation on tax reform, immigration, and repealing and replacing Obamacare.
Republicans weren`t naïve, they realized that Trump wasn`t a real Republican, but an opportunist who saw his best chance of winning running as a Republican. Nevertheless they had high hopes that after eight years of Obama they would finally pass conservation legislation, after all they controlled the White House and both chambers of Congress.
This week marks the six month point of Trump`s chaotic and turbulent presidency, repealing and replacing Obamacare is a pipe dream, the Wall is a mirage, the infrastructure plan is crumbling and tax reform isn`t going anywhere.
Trump`s only clear victory is the Senate confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
Why is the Trump administration such an unmitigated disaster even though the GOP controls all levers of power in Washington?
According to the polls, even the conservative-friendly Rasmussen poll, Trump is the most unpopular White House incumbent of the modern political era.
The Russian scandal has completely consumed the Trump administration, and instead of tamping down the controversy and focusing on policy, Trump has fed the fires with his obsessive compulsion to tweet about Russia.
Time has run out on the Trump administration, and even the most adroit politician wouldn`t be able to turn things around. Certainly an incontinent toddler with the diplomatic skills of a WWE wrestler isn`t going to right the ship of state.
A Monmouth University poll released this week showed that more Americans want to see Trump impeached today than was the case for then-incumbent Richard Nixon at the start of the Watergate scandal.
Republicans are blind if they can`t see that the faux-Republican buffoon isn`t going to lead their party to the Promised Land. They don`t have the luxury of waiting a year or longer until the Special Counsel completes his investigation, they would be well-advised to immediately take steps to get rid of the bastard.
