Remember when people voted Donald Trump into the White House on the belief he was a savvy businessman and expert negotiator? In the last 24 hours, his administration has managed to take a bill everybody hates and make it worse, alienating more members of his own party in the process and possibly violating yet another law in a last-ditch effort to save it.

Donald Trump is not a total loser, though: he took credit for creating 20,000 new jobs (that were announced 18 months ago) and was described as having “perfect genes” (by somebody he employs). Who cares if his administration doesn’t know how pregnancy works?

Meanwhile, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) abruptly canceled open hearings into whether or not the Trump campaign colluded with allies in Russia.
