What did Mitch offer to get Trump to support Luther Strange?

If ever there was a Senate candidate that best personifies the DC Swamp it is Luther Strange.

He is backed by Karl Rove and the pro-Amnesty US Chamber of Commerce – neither of whom are in any way supporters of the President’s agenda.

And then there’s Mitch McConnell who has poured millions into Strange’s campaign.

On the other hand, Judge Roy Moore is a vocal supporter of President Trump’s agenda. Not only that, he is endorsed by a phalanx of Trump supporters including Mike Huckabee, Sean Hannity, Sarah Palin and chairman of the House Freedom Caucus Mark Meadows.

Even Steve Bannon supports Moore.

And yet.

So what gives?

Why on earth would President Trump support Luther Strange when Strange isn’t exactly on board the Trump Train?

It just seems, well, strange.

I’ve said before that Congressional Republicans are confident they will outlast the President – even if this President serves eight years. Because unlike him, they are not saddled with term limits. And once in office, they enjoy a 95% incumbency rate in elections.

So whoever wins the Alabama race will be there long after the President is gone.

And Lord knows McConnell would prefer that be his guy and not a Trump guy.

As far as long-term planning goes, I can see why McConnell wants Luther Strange to win.

But I simply cannot wrap my mind around why Trump would endorse him.

And it makes me wonder.

Did McConnell make a deal with the President in exchange for Trump supporting Luther Strange?

Was it McConnell’s price for doing as Trump asked and getting rid of the filibuster rule?

Or did McConnell agree to get off his ass and get to work on Trump’s agenda?

Who knows?

I’m just spit-balling here.

But the truth is, something about this seems odd.

When you have a candidate that is tailor-made for the MAGA movement and the President endorses his opponent, it’s a real head-scratcher.

So President Trump must think he’s going to get something in return for this.

But just as I said about the Democrats, expecting Mitch McConnell to deal in good faith is a rookie mistake.

The bottom line is I do not trust Mitch McConnell.

He’s the guy who told us, “Give us the Senate and we’ll repeal Obamacare.”

And then did nothing.

He’s the guy who told us, “Give us the White House and we’ll repeal Obamacare.”

And did he?

If he said to President Trump, “Give me Luther Strange and I’ll get to work on your agenda,” you’d have to be an idiot to fall for it.

And something tells me, if McConnell gets his way and Luther Strange wins this seat, Donald Trump is going to learn the hard way that making a deal with a snake in the grass never ends the way you hoped.

    While I have scratched my head over this tweet, I assume that the President is doing this to weed out the corrupt politicians so people will vote in favor of the good candidates? If Trump endorses a good candidate, the media might run off on hit ads on that person. I have no clue, we’ll see. I just want Tax Reform already.

    That’s all McCONnell needs is another RINO in the Senate to thwart Trump’s and America’s initiatives.

    You won’t see repeal of Obamacare, Tax relief, smaller government, reducing the debt or The Wall with McCONnell and Ryan orchestrating the GOP elites to work with Pelosi and Schumer. All you’ll see is what we’ve dealt with the last 8 years.
    Submission and capitulation.

    I cannot understand this at all. Besides the fact that DJT hates the Pillsbury Doughboy a/k/a Karl Rove (as I do), this is just beyond my comprehension.
