With President Trump’s overnight announcement to cancel the government’s consideration of his Doral property in Florida for the location for the G7 summit in 2020, the liberal media were reveling in what was another loss for the President. During NBC’s Sunday Today, host Willie Geist and Meet the Press moderator/NBC political director Chuck Todd were hyped up by what the latter described as the wobbliest he’s seen Republican support for Trump.
Geist began their conversation by reading off a laundry list of things that either didn’t go the President’s way or caused some headaches over the previous week:
We can start with this sort of bundle of stories we’re talking about this morning. You have this idea, remember, the President said we’re getting out of Syria; ‘I am going to end endless wars.’ Well, those troops are actually just moving Iraq. You have this reversal on Doral. You had Mick Mulvaney, the chief of staff, from the White House podium effectively confessing to a quid pro quo, telling America to get over it and then walking that back.
“Trouble for the President, I think, and this is the first time -- not the first time, but this is as wobbly, as I would say, congressional Republicans have gotten on Trump, I’d say, since he took office,” Todd said. He then mocked Trump’s reversal on the Doral decision as evidence “that he at least can still feel a buzz on the electric fence if he pokes it.”
