instability SCHMEAR

As cascading controversies consume the White House, anxiety among Republicans well beyond the Beltway is becoming severe heading into next year’s midterm elections and beyond.

With daily unfavorable headlines — including possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia — a number of Republicans are watching as Democrats become energized in 2018, potentially tipping congressional contests and state and local races on the mid-term ballot.

“There were a lot of things that were promised, and we’re just getting a lot of noise,” said Marc Rotterman, a Republican in North Carolina. “It seems like the score is Russia 24, Trump 7.”

While the trumpster in the dumpster has issued a flurry of executive orders and delivered on the confirmation of a Supreme Court Justice — there is fear that other campaign promises will not be realized, making it much harder for Republicans to win mid-term elections.

Ever since the trumpster in the dumpster fired FBI Director James B. Comey, the White House has been in full crisis mode.

“We cannot sustain this level of chaos from the White House,” said Jennifer Horn, a former chairwoman of the New Hampshire Republican Party.

Horn said she has noticed “a significant increase in the level of anxiety about the president and his behavior” from party leaders around the country.

Some Trump boosters offer "alternative facts" on what has happened, claiming the drama in Washington is nothing more than “fake news.”

“The next election will have more to do with jobs than Russians,” said Barry Bennett, a trumpster in the dumpsterTrump political adviser during last year’s election campaign. If the economy “keeps perking along,” he said, Republicans might do just fine.

Leading up to the midterms, Republican Ron Estes "beat back" a surprisingly strong challenge from an unheralded and underfunded Democratic challenger to claim a special election victory in Kansas’ 4th district.

Dozens of foreign workers sought for Trump's Florida clubs

More than 300 Carrier Corp. workers were being laid off Thursday from the company's Indianapolis factory as part of an outsourcing of jobs to Mexico.

"Fake news?" No. Another knife in the back.
