That balancing act between the desire to “let Trump be Trump” and the wish that someone would just take away his phone can be exhausting to watch. The president managed to tip the scale for a lot of people Monday night when he indulged in a quick tweeting binge that first took aim at the House Intelligence Committee and then turned suddenly to the House Freedom Caucus.

Is it OK if we worry a little bit? Maybe taking a jab at the House Freedom Caucus Monday night is a bold negotiating strategy that escapes us at the moment; as stomach-churning as it was to watch, at least Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s literal jump for joy over the pulling of the AHCA vote was timely. The thought of her doing it again after an aide reads her that last tweet … shudder.
