Rock| Donny Leper |Hard Place

Post by MaxEntropy_Man on Sat Jul 22, 2017 11:40 am

The Republican congress even if they won't outright oppose Trump yet, have decided they're not going to make it easy for him.


They've just made a deal with Democrats on new Russia sanctions. The more Leper wants to make nice with his daddy Vlad, the more American people and their congress are digging their heels in. Nice!


And that sets up a fight with congress for Donny. The pressure from Vlad to veto it, and the domestic optics if he decides to veto it must be really hard. Rock|Donny Leper|Hard Place.

Obamacare repeal is dead.
The wall is unfunded.
Tax reform is still being drafted.
Republicans in both houses are voting to take away his authority to remove sanctions.

No wonder he is panicking and talking about his pardon powers. And his supporters are focusing on last year's losing candidate again!

That cartoon is a perfect pictorial illustration of a very apt kuRaL:

யா காவார் ஆயினும், நா காக்க; காவாக்கால்,
சோகாப்பர், சொல் இழுக்குப் பட்டு.

yA kAvArAyinum nA kAkka; kAvAkkAl,
sOkAppar, sol izhukkup pattu.

Rough translation: No matter how loosely you control other things in your life, control your tongue. If you don't, your tongue may lead you to prison.
