THE REAL DAVE TROTT?
Congressman David Trott (R-Birmingham) appeared to be suffering from multiple personality disorder following the federal government shutdown in January. Trott was first quoted in a January 19 Detroit News article criticizing President Trump for the then-looming shutdown, saying: “I think it’s the president’s fault. He hasn’t led. No question in my mind about that. He hasn’t led on this or many other issues.” The soon-to-be retiring congressman then waffled away his statement in a Facebook post the following morning. “It’s regrettable and deeply disappointing that Senate Democrats have chosen to shut down the government only to appease their political base... The Senate Democrats need to stop playing games and support the spending bill that passed in the House with bipartisan support.” The abrupt flip-flop is concerning enough for us to look forward to Trott’s retirement later this year, so he can get some much needed rest.
