President Trump in the Days Ahead


For John, BLUFAlready talk of the threat to President Trump in 2019, given a Democratic Party victory in 2018—as if.  Nothing to see here; just move along.




That would be Gad Fly Hugh Hewitt.

From The Hill, by Reporter Paulina Firozi.

Here is the lede:

Conservative radio host Hugh Hewitt said Tuesday he thinks President Trump is on "constitutional thin ice" and could face impeachment if Democrats regain control of the House in 2018.
Yes, possible.  However, I think this assertion is wrong:
"He’s beginning his presidency successfully in my view with a few, very bold initiatives, but with the highest negatives of any incoming president since Gallup kept track. That says to me: thin ice, move carefully.”
Yes, he was elected because he had a few very bold initiatives.  That is what got him elected.  He was a contrast to Ms Hillary Clinton, who was not transformational and did not really campaign as transformational.  But, given his high negatives, President Trump has to move boldly, otherwise those who voted for him in 2017 will reject him as not being the person they thought he was.  Martin Luther would urge him to "sin boldly".
