Decades-old clue says Trump's bad week might not be so bad

29 March, 2017, 01:49 | Author: Celia Hoffman

Fox News' Jeanine Pirro on Saturday demanded that House Speaker Paul Ryan resign after the GOP's health care bill failed to gain enough votes before being pulled last week. "You come in with all your swagger and experience and sell them a bill of goods which ends up a complete and total failure and you allow our president, in his first 100 days, to come out of the box like that, based on what?"

But after a humiliating defeat, which many Trump advisers are eager to pin on Mr Ryan, the Speaker is now tasked with defending not just his leadership abilities but also his very brand of conservatism in a party fitfully searching for a coherent policy identity that can deliver tangible victories. But Priebus insisted that "there was no pre-planning here" and that Trump was doing Pirro "a favor" by promoting her show. "At some point, I think that means looking beyond our conference".

"This is not on President Trump", she said.

Trump's vague Twitter tease urged followers to tune into "Justice with Judge Jeanine" at 9 p.m. - without specifying why.

Among those named by Breitbart as possible contenders for the speaker post were House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy - who was originally tapped to succeed John Boehner in 2015 before impolitic remarks about the real objective of the Benghazi probe - and New Jersey Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen, the influential chairman of the House Appropriations Committee who was among the first moderates to revolt against the health-care bill. Well, if you're White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, you just chalk the whole thing up to coincidence.

On Friday evening, a somewhat shellshocked president retreated to the White House residence to grieve and assign blame.

SIMON: Speaker of the House Paul Ryan to reporters yesterday just after he decided not to bring the Republican health care reform proposal to a vote.

Ryan's task wasn't a layup, but seven years is a long time. "Why start with this [bill] if you're not sure you've got the votes?"

While Donald Trump sounds like House Speaker Paul Ryan's buddy on Friday after the disastrous TrumpCare bill failed, Saturday was an entirely different story. When people go to a restaurant they don't want two items on the menu, they want 22 items to choose from on the menu because not everybody eats the same thing and not everybody needs to consume the same kind of health insurance or health care. Never mind, too, what might or might not have happened if the bill made it to the Senate. Incredibly, Speaker Ryan and President Trump repeated the exact same blunders. "They weren't going to give us a single vote so it's a very hard thing to do", Mr. Trump said. "But I can only imagine that he and his aides only took on health care because they believed you had his back, and you didn't". He could have referred people to her show any day, but chose that specific one.
