There They Go Again

We're back today with the stories about how the Trump White House is in disarray.  In other words, it must be a slow news day, so the mainstream media has to go back to this old chestnut.  The subject today is the news that the Senate delayed a vote on the GOP healthcare bill until after the July 4th recess rather than prior to it.  That delay has even engendered a report in New York magazine from Ryan Lizza that the entire Trump presidency is about to go down the drain.

Seriously, do the people writing these stories remember that they wrote almost the same stories word for word when the House delayed the vote on the House healthcare bill?  It took about a month, but the GOP came back and passed that House version of the bill.  Somehow, the GOP overcame the "total disarray" and chaos about which the mainstream media wrote endlessly, and they passed the bill.  Now we're getting the same hit pieces from the mainstream media.

It's ought to be interesting to see what happens if the GOP passes the bill through the Senate in two weeks from now.  All these "experts" and "pundits" should step forward and admit that they were totally wrong.  Of course, they won't do that.  Instead, they will tell us about how any attempt to move the healthcare bill to a conference committee will be impossible because of chaos at the White House or in the GOP ranks in Congress.  On the other hand, if the House leadership just puts forward the Senate bill for passage in the House, the "experts" will tell us how the effort is doomed due to "disarray" in the caucus.

I don't know what will happen with the Senate bill.  I do know for certain, however, that none of the so called experts or pundits know what will happen either.

The media so love the idea of connecting chaos with anything Republican or Trump, that I can forsee stories in 2025 about how the plans for the Donald Trump presidential library are being delayed due to chaos on the building committee.  It will be the same BS then that it is now.
