And I think what’s going on in the minds of a lot of Senate Republicans is this question of whether they will ever find some way to say what they know deep down, which is that this President is a disaster not only for the country but for their own party. Or whether staying in power requires them to continue riding this tiger until he finally devours them. And so, in a very sad and very real sense, that’s what’s going to play out.”
