Trumpsters are jubilant about the Tax Reform Bill.
Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan are Triumphant
“We just got together and we would work very hard … it was a lot of fun. It’s always a lot of fun when you win,” Trump said, turning to House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, the partners in his emerging marriage of hard-core cooperation growing between the GOP’s insurgent and establishment wings.
“All friends. I mean, I look at these people: It’s like we’re warriors together,” Trump said.
“We’re just getting started,” said Vice President Mike Pence. GOP House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy added: “This is a big day for America. This is America’s comeback.” Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, outdoing his peers in his praise of Trump, predicted the newly united GOP would “make this the greatest presidency that we’ve seen not only in generations, but maybe ever.”
Senator Tim Scott is not a ‘Token Republican.’
It often can be remarkably difficult to be a black Republican. Just ask Senator Tim Scott, a Republican leader from South Carolina who routinely faces abuse from the left for daring to be both African American and an outspoken conservative politician.
Yesterday afternoon, Scott was attacked by left-wing pundits when he stood right next to President Trump. “…Way to go @SenatorTimScott,” wrote HuffPost blogger Andy Ostroy.
A few hours later, after fielding plenty of online criticism, Ostroy deleted his earlier tweets and apologized to Scott, for which he should be commended.
