President Trump just can't stop winning.
Not only did Dems fail to win enough Republican votes to call John Bolton to testify at the president's impeachment trial in the Senate (which so far has attracted a tiny fraction of the attention paid to the Senate trial of former President Clinton), but in one of the greatest unforced errors in American political history, they also botched the Iowa caucus, helping to restore the widespread cynicism that permeated the 2016 contest.
And since Trump isn't the kind of politician to resist taking a victory lap, he did just that Tuesday morning in a scathing tweet reminding Americans why they shouldn't trust the Democrats to run the country.
The Democrat Caucus is an unmitigated disaster. Nothing works, just like they ran the Country. Remember the 5 Billion Dollar Obamacare Website, that should have cost 2% of that. The only person that can claim a very big victory in Iowa last night is “Trump”.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2020
Because the real winners of the Iowa Caucus was...the Republicans?
Big WIN for us in Iowa tonight. Thank you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 4, 2020
We suspect we haven't heard the last about the Iowa caucus (which Trump won handily in 2016) from President Trump's twitter feed. Tying the Iowa disaster to the botched rollout of the Obamacare exchanges in 2014 is exactly the political narrative that Trump and his team will need to deploy if they want to clinch a second term in November.
