No one person bears singular blame for the current state of American politics. It took many different choices, from many different people, to produce Kremlin kowtower Dotard Trump. And it took even more choices, from an even greater range of people, to produce the present-day Republican Party, so caught in the grip of entrenched interests, hard-right ideology, and social revanchism that it was primed for the racist, authoritarian, and kleptocratic politics of a Trump. But some people bear more responsibility than others, and Paul Ryan bears more than most.

Eric Trump went on Fox News on Saturday night to declare the government shutdown “a good thing for us” — apparently because he believes it makes the Democrats look bad.

Eric was in Mar-a-Lago filling in for his dad at $100,000-a-head festivities to celebrate the rude White House occupant’s first year of occupancy. Donald Trump stayed behind in Washington after talks broke down among senators Friday night over a short-term funding agreement to keep the government operating.
