Trump's first reaction to midterm results: start a slow-motion Saturday Night Massacre; there could be more soon
Here is a pretty definitive score on the results of the midterms, from Vox, as of 11 PM EST Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018.
Rick Scott beat Bill Nelson in FL, so David Hogg didn’t win on his home field! (Hogg can be a Senator in 2031.) Scott is probably pressured somewhat to moderation, however.
Trump’s firing of Jeff Sessions (who had started to mellow a little) and might end the Mueller probe (MSNBC) Matt Whittaker acts as AG. Republicans warn Trump not to stop the Mueller probe (Guardian). Democrats will have subpoena power.
A slow-motion Saturday night massacre?
