‘Sources’ say president has ‘retreated into a cocoon of bitterness and resentment’; Ben Shapiro zings

Remember back in September when there was the big brouhaha over who wrote that unsigned op-ed in the New York Times claiming to part of the Resistance in the White House vowing to thwart parts of President Trump’s agenda and his worst inclinations?

We still don’t know who wrote it, but we do know we don’t put a lot of faith in anonymous sources from the Trump administration — make that especially from the Trump administration.

The headline of this post might sound like it came from a fortune cookie, but it’s actually a line from the Los Angeles Times, which is looking into President Trump’s low profile following so many rallies before the midterm elections.

For weeks this fall, an ebullient President Trump traveled relentlessly to hold raise-the-rafters campaign rallies — sometimes three a day — in states where his presence was likely to help Republicans on the ballot.

But his mood apparently has changed as he has taken measure of the electoral backlash that voters delivered Nov. 6. With the certainty that the incoming Democratic House majority will go after his tax returns and investigate his actions, and the likelihood of additional indictments by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, Trump has retreated into a cocoon of bitterness and resentment, according to multiple administration sources.

Yep. Trump’s alone in the White House and no one likes him. We’re doing that again.
