How’s the big man doing?
But what about the Donald Trump the world doesn’t see?
From a Wednesday night New York Times piece (emphasis mine):
President Trump has insisted that he is not going to compromise with Democrats to end the government shutdown, and that he is comfortable in his unbendable position. But privately, it’s sometimes a different story.
“We are getting crushed!” Mr. Trump told his acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, after watching some recent coverage of the shutdown, according to one person familiar with the conversation. “Why can’t we get a deal?”
Sad. The country’s most beautiful soul, trapped in a private hell. If only there was an easy, obvious solution to his problems—something that would “reopen” his love of life.
