Stuart Varney approves of Trump's deal with Chuck and Nancy, and blasted Republicans in Congress for failing their president by standing "on principle" and never getting anything done.

Varney and the entire conservarazzi on Fox News and elsewhere were belligerent in their stance to oppose President Obama over their stated principles.

They reveled in the idea that their principles outweighed the voters of America, who elected Obama for two terms with huge margins to get things done.

Stuart Varney brought on Rep. Brian Babin (R-TX) to discuss Trump's surprise deal and said, "I approve of what the president did. I'm glad he went to the Democrats to get something done because in my mind the GOP is not a party of government at this point."

Rep. Brian Babin disagreed saying, "Quite frankly we passed health care in May. We've passed many --"

Varney jumped in, "Congressman, I'm sorry to be rude, but you are a Republican and the Republican party has failed to do anything in Congress thus far."

Rep. Babin then tried to use Hurricane Harvey as cover to weasel out of the heat Varney was bringing him since his district was affected.

Rep. Babin said Trump must have an ace up his sleeve for making the deal with the Democrats, but since he's been dealing with Harvey, hadn't had the time to know what that was.

"I was caught off guard," he said. "This seemingly puts us at a distinct disadvantage, it sets us up at Christmas time for another big CR that's going to be shoved down our throats."

Rep. Babin then described how hard hit his districts were hot by Harvey.

Varney then made a drastic flip-flop on conservative principles, saying,"Conservatives have consistently stood on principles. You don't have the votes to get your way in Congress."

"You don't have em'. At the end of the day you failed. You don't get something done. Will you continue to stand on principle no matter what?"

Babin replied, "Absolutely, that's why I'm up here."

When Rep. Babin said he was elected to repeal Obamacare, Varney frustratingly said, "Where does that leave us, Congressman?"

"A lot of people voted Republican to get something done - you haven't done anything," Varney said.

The always-Trumpers now want conservatives to ditch their ideals and principles to blindly back Trump.

It couldn't happen to a more fu*ked up nicer group of conservative politicians.
