Port: Congressman Cramer on Trump scandals: 'Giving the middle finger to the police officer isn't a good idea'

With Trump-related controversies dominating the headlines it seems Republicans are opting to two specific defenses.

First, that a press corps that is biased toward Republicans, generally, and detests Trump, specifically, is misleading the public and overreacting to explainable events.

Second, that there is a political conspiracy in the federal government which has, as its agenda, undermining President Donald Trump.

While I don’t doubt that both of these things are true to one extent or another, I don’t think they explain away all of Trump’s problems. I asked Congressman Kevin Cramer about that during our radio interview today.

“What bothers me the most is the lack of discipline in their own communications shop,” Cramer said.
