Does President Trump Want Speaker Paul Ryan to Resign?

And so Romney worked with Democrats to pass the MA health care plan which, he explained, was entirely within his party's philosophical wheelhouse: "The Republican approach is to say, 'You know what?" In stopping the repeal of former president Barack Obama's proudest legacy - the Republican Party's professed priority for the last seven years - from even coming to a vote, the rebellious far-right wing out-rebelled Mr Trump, taking on and defeating the party establishment that it has always been at war with and which he now leads.

Judge Jeanine Pirro accused the Wisconsin lawmaker of having "failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill, one trumpeted to repeal and replace Obamacare". The failure to repeal Obamacare has made House Republicans question whether their party can reach consensus on anything.

"I want to be clear, this is not on President Trump".

"We think there's some sort of collusion or conspiracy with Trump and Fox News", CNN reporter Dylan Byers told Stelter, "but the truth is I think you're right - he's just watching, he's just responding".

The Times reported that chief strategist Steve Bannon, according to people familiar with White House discussions, "described Trump's decision to withdraw the health care bill as a flat-out failure that could inflict serious damage on this presidency - even if Bannon believes Congress, not Trump, deserves much of the blame".

Pirro also mentioned that the president had no coordination with her before the tweet. On Sunday Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter: "Democrats are smiling in D.C. that the Freedom Caucus, with the help of Club For Growth and Heritage, have saved Planned Parenthood & Ocare!"

Pirro said she hadn't spoken to the president since the debacle but could only imagine that Trump felt that Ryan "had his back", but Ryan didn't deliver. For example, Trump wrote about the importance of being flexible in words that mirrored his remarks on Friday after the bill was pulled. Speaker Ryan called them growing pains, but I wonder, to press a medical analogy, could they be persisting pains on issue after issue over the next couple of years?

Ryan - whom Paul Krugman correctly labeled "flimflam" man back when the Wisconsin congressman was just a lowly backbencher on the make - is now damaged beyond fix as leader of the House.

She expressed fear that House conservatives will "feel emboldened" and "dig their heels in on the tax cuts", the next item on the speaker's agenda. "Just remember when it explodes, this is their bill not ours".

But it is a fairly sure bet that the political incompetence, bad judgment and arrogance he displayed in mismanaging that legislative effort will hobble attempts to get anything done in Washington going forward. "I think his core principles have broad admiration in both parties".

Everyone including Ryan spokeswoman AshLee Strong seems to be okay with the House Speaker despite Pirro's harsh reproach.

"I don't want to cast blame, but there is a block of no votes that we had, they were a sufficient number of votes that prevented it from passing", said Ryan.
