During a quick presser before a cabinet meeting, when Trump was asked about his legislative failures, he took zero responsibility: "I’m not going to blame myself, I’ll be honest. They [Congress] are not getting the job done.”

Trump will always narcissistically avoid blame for any of his administration's shortcomings.

Karoli has a great post up detailing how Trump lied about cutting off ACA's subsidy monies and what it means. Are you surprised?

Trump was then asked about Steve Bannon's war on GOP and Leader Mitch McConnell.

He started off by saying what great relationships he has with the Senate and then backed up Bannon's point.

Trump said, "But but we're not getting the job done and I'm not going to blame myself. I'll be honest. They are not getting the job done."

He continued, "We've had health care approved and then you had a surprise vote by John McCain. We've had other things happen and they're not getting the job done and I can understand where Steve Bannon is coming from and I can understand, to be honest with you, John, I can understand where a lot of people are copping from because I'm not happy about it and a lot of people aren't happy about it."

Then he went on to say how "We need tax cuts."

In Trump's mind he's already the greatest president of all time and has done more in Congress than anyone.

All he's doing now is waiting to drop some bombs and start a war.
