Who are President Donald Trump‘s two best friends in politics?
Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. You see their smirks and those six bloody elbows between the three of them, and you figure this is no relationship.
But it is a relationship that works for the president because they keep bringing up his favorite subject. And it works fine for Barack and Hillary because it fills their egos with a mighty wind.
It just doesn’t work for the Democratic Party.
It is a relationship that benefits Trump, because every time Obama or Clinton open their mouths, America is reminded of what was rejected in 2016 — Clinton’s presidential hopes and Obama’s dreams that she’d keep his legacy intact.
Trump doesn’t much want to talk about Washington Republicans peeling the skin off his populism. They’ve been peeling Trump the way a crafty TV hillbilly might peel an apple, sitting on a porch swing, telling stories in a bad sitcom with a pig named Arnold and canned laughter.
But if there’s one thing Trump loves talking about, it’s the 2016 election, and how the media was (and is) against him, and how those snotty liberals swinging their basket of deplorables lost the working class and blue collar Midwestern states.
