I’m pretty sure I overheard this conversation recently between Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan in the Senate cloak room.

Ryan: “Mitch, everyone seems to be dumping on Trump. We should try to give him credit for the admirable qualities he exhibits.” McConnell: “I’m with you, Paul. Let’s have at it.”

R. “He’s rational.” McC. “Whoa, let’s not get carried away.”

R. “He’s kind.” McC. “Are you kidding? Ask Megyn Kelly.”

R. “He’s considerate.” McC. “Paul, he ridiculed a disabled reporter.”

R. “He’s respectful.” McC. “What? He said McCain’s not a hero.”

R. “He’s truthful.” McC. “He lies like a Persian rug on steroids.”

R. “He’s modest.” McC. “He bloated the size of his inauguration crowd.”

R. “He’s loyal.” McC. “Don’t say that to Ivana or Marla.”

R. “He’s objective.” McC. “Remember the Muslims he says he saw dancing in New Jersey after 911?”

R. “He’s tall.” McC. “Great! Now we’re getting somewhere.”

R. “He has an opposable thumb.” McC. “Terrific! Let’s go with it.”

“Mitch, I hope he appreciates this.” “Paul, you know he’s grateful for everything we do.”
