How the GOP Is Playing Trump Until They Can Dump Him

Do the Republicans plan to dump Trump? I’m willing to wager they do.

Counter Information


By Robert Reich

January 22, 2017 “Information Clearing House” –  I had breakfast recently with a friend who’s a former Republican member of Congress. Here’s what he said:

Me: So what now? What are your former Republican colleagues going to do?

Him (smirking): They’ll play along for a while.

Me: A while?

Him: They’ll get as much as they want – tax cuts galore, deregulation, military buildup, slash all those poverty programs, and then get to work on Social Security and Medicare – and blame him. And he’s such a fool he’ll want to take credit for everything.

Me: And then what?

Him (laughing): They like Pence.

Me: What do you mean?
