In a less than surprising turn of events, Democrats took the House on Tuesday evening which meant certain talking heads couldn’t wait to spin this as a negative for President Trump.
Looking at you, Jake Tapper:
“This is not a good night for President Trump,” says @JakeTapper in response to the President’s victory tweet. “The Democrats have just retaken the House and they are going to have subpoena power and they’re going to make his life a living hell.” https://t.co/wsOvIyRoa8 pic.twitter.com/01Deag4GKG

Because Democrats haven’t already made his life a living Hell? Maybe Jake missed it but the first two years of Trump’s term haven’t exactly been easy for him. We get what he’s trying to say here, that they’ll have some actual authority but at the end of the day without power in the Senate all they really can do is annoy Trump.
And everyday Americans, which will not play out well in 2020.
Dana Loesch said it better.
And will overreach and guarantee a 2020 reelection victory with a GOP majority in House and Senate. ¯_( ツ)_/¯ https://t.co/Qw3mkwjgcQ

She’s right you know.
It pains me to say this but Pelosi as Speaker could help 2020, but listening to her and Mad Maxine for two years, cackling their insane rhetoric, makes me happy to work in medicine and not politics.

Like we said, annoying but at the end of the day … eh.
For the next two years it’s gonna be non-stop crazy from Democrats desperate to placate their radical base.

And having next to zero power to actually do anything with it other than making even bigger fools of themselves with their constant temper tantrums.
Dems winning the house is probably the best news possible for Trump re-election in 2020! Lower house has no power without the Senate and Dems are now perfectly positioned to take full blame for any failed legislation or partisan stagnation with no path of rebuttal!

Isn't this the kind of fight @realDonaldTrump enjoys most?
