The day of the announcement my father told me something that I would remember, again and again in the coming weeks and months. It would be one of the most accurate observations I would hear since my own immersion into politics.

Trump has few real friends these days within the Washington D.C. ruling class, aside from his inner circle. After as corrupt an election as one can imagine, many of his so-called friends are eager to stick a shiv in his ribs rather than defend him against a coup that makes Spygate looks like child’s play.
