Trump Just Prefers Talking to Democrats

In recent weeks, Trump has complained in private that its difficult to have any sort of relationship or even make small talk with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. Hes told staff that he finds Speaker Paul Ryan, whom hes dubbed a boy scout, dry as well, but the two have some rapport.

By contrast, Trump can relate to Democratic leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, who talk more in non-Washington terms that he understands, according to people familiar with their meetings. Trump wants to keep meeting with them.....

Still, after feeling that Republicans in Congress had largely failed him, Trump has decided that he will work with whoever can give him wins, according to White House sources familiar with his thinking.

2. He likes anyone who will pat him on the head

and tell him he's wonderful. Hats off to Pelosi and Schumer for being able to pull it off. I sure as hell couldn't.

3. Dump is going to tack left.

Fact is that Schumer and Pelosi are big city folk. Dump is used to dealing with them on a daily basis for most of his life.

If we flip the House and Senate next year, we may even get single-payor Medicare out of this bastard.
