White House Revels in Going “Beyond Stupid”

“No Previous President Has Ever Done That” Trump Did Not Say

After Nevada Sen. Dean Heller came out against the Senate’s health care/tax cuts for the wealthy bill he was attacked by Republican supporters in ads in that state.  The Senate leader seeing one of his most vulnerable members about to be crushed reacted thusly.

The majority leader — already rankled by Mr. Trump’s tweets goading him to change Senate rules to scuttle Democratic filibusters — called the White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, to complain that the attacks were “beyond stupid,” according to two Republicans with knowledge of the tense exchange.

Unreliable reports on fake news said that far from being insulted President Trump and his White House staff saw this as another accomplishment, something to crow about.  They did not say that no one had ever gone beyond stupid in the government since the second Bush administration and even then it took them years.  “We did it in a manner of months” the President did not say on Fox Faux News, and “and no one is giving us credit for it”.
