If there's one thing Donald Trump knows, it's ratings. Whenever his TV faux-reality show comes up he comes out with some line about his incomparable ratings.
Well he's got a different show now and, this time, his ratings are terrible and worsening. Right now, among Republicans, Trump's approval numbers are a little worse than Richard Nixon's were at their nadir when Watergate drove Nixon to resign.
This is a bad place for The Donald to be in especially this early in his first term with Republican voters taking their leave, Congressional Republicans in a surly mood, a party that cannot pass any significant legislation and prosecutors closing in from all sides.
There's a slowly building chorus calling for Trump's head. A former GOP senator, Gordon Humphrey of New Hampshire, has called for today's Congressional Republicans to rally around anti-Trump senators Corker and Flake and rid the GOP of this "vile president."
Meanwhile, the Flying Finger of Free Speech has cost Juli Briskman her job.
Juli Briskman works for a government contractor called Akima LLC. She is the cyclist who flipped off the Presidential Motorcade recently. The photo went viral, and Juli went to her HR department to admit that she is the woman in the photograph.
And the hits just keep on coming. Sam Clovis, the campaign supervisor for former campaign foreign affairs adviser, George Papadopoulos, who recently pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, supposedly sang like a canary during a recent appearance before Mueller's grand jury.
Word has it that Clovis didn't mention his grand jury appearance to the White House. Team Trump learned of it from media reports.
As Reagan put it, it's a great morning in America, especially with Trump in Asia.
