“I’m not going to make it too long, because I have to get votes,” Trump said, sparking laughter. “I don’t want to spend too much time with you. I’m going to lose by one vote, and then I’m going to blame the truckers.”
Blame the truckers. Trump is always looking for a way out of his problems, and being constitutionally unable to admit defeat or accept any personal responsibility for his failures, he keeps his eye open for victims to blame for his mistakes. Now that Trumpcare has failed to pass the House, he’s blaming the Democrats as well. He thinks they own this failure, as if he or Paul Ryan and his team had even one conversation with Nancy Pelosi about how many votes she would be able to swing their way to destroy the Democratic Party’s signature piece of legislation during the past eight years.
