    If I were Trump, I wouldn't appreciate my ghost-writer making money off of throwing me under the bus.

      If you read to the end, you'll see what Trump's reaction was. As expected, not pleased.

        Trump should fire him.

              A piece explaining why Democrats as a party are in such bad shape. Written by a Rolling Stone guy, so you know its fair.

              This is why the basket of deplorables comment last summer was so devastating. That the line would become a sarcastic rallying cry for Trumpites was inevitable. (Of course it birthed a political merchandising supernova.) To many Democrats, the reaction proved the truth of Clintons statement. As in: were not going to get the overwhelming majority of these yeehaw-ing deplorable votes anyway, so why not call them by their names?

              But the deplorables comment didnt just further alienate already lost Republican votes. It spoke to an internal sickness within the Democratic Party, which had surrendered to a negativistic vision of a hopelessly divided country.

                Need to pry their party out of the hands of the entitled elitists. At least the Clinton Royal Family is deposed.

                  Its weird because the Clintons are plebeians compared to the Trump clan. I personally question this drive to depose all experienced, popular and capable Democrats. Seems like the push for new blood is coming from a desire for a weaker Democratic party. Take the hate on Pelosi for example. She and Hillary are hated by republicans because they are recognizable examples of capable Democrat politicians. Why do we have to give in to their desires when Republicans are still rallying around buffoons like Trump?

                    Note the Republicans appear to have rid themselves of THEIR royal family also.

                    And even though I'm not a particular fan of Pelosi, I don't see why you need to get rid of her.

                    Biden is far from an outsider for the Democrats, and I far preferred him over Hillary.

                    Now they need to be more inclusive and stop doing their version of Romney's "47%" mistake. You can't badmouth people because they don't meet your definition of orthodoxy. You need to listen, address and persuade potential voters.

                      The only people they are getting rid of in either party are people far past retirement age. Jeb Bush, for instance is W's older brother and hasn't held office since 2007.

                      as far as potential voters, one of the best things to come from Republican control for Democrats is Republican policy. They may have voted against Obamacare or globalism or social safety nets but when the voters see what it's like to have bad government the pendulum will swing again.

                        That's why all the hysterical folks crying out for impeachment should think about what that means. President Pence would be a far more potent opponent in the next election, and save the Republicans from Chump backlash.

                        Pence could get much of their agenda through without nearly as much fuss.

                        P.S. And the Democrats need to stop implying all the people living in the middle of this country are dumb bumpkins.

                          Pence, like any unelected official, will face an uphill challenge in 2020. Pence wasn't even a popular Republican, and his decision to hitch his wagon to the Trump train will be foremost in minds of voters. Even more importantly, based on his performance in Indiana and as VP I don't think he lives up to your assessment as a naturally able administrator. His last job was as head of the transition for Gods sake, his current job is supposedly finding out the truth about Trump's voter fraud claims.

                            Yes, he now has the stain.

                            But if he inherited the top job, he couldn't HELP but look better by comparison. Just enough to maybe fool people into thinking he's actually a reasonable candidate next election?

                              I don't know how he won't be implicated in the entire Trump disaster. He's not an alternative, he's just the next in line of succession, and may have some work ahead defending himself. He could easily get primaried.
