'In The Art of the Deal, Trump said that playing to people’s fantasies and promising the greatest product was 'an innocent form of exaggeration.' But it’s one thing when you do that for condos and cologne and mattresses and steaks. It’s another for life-or-death health care policy.The president feted his fake-news 'win' in the Rose Garden, sprinkling flimflam dust to deflect from his ludicrous legislation. He wanted to make a deal so badly he was heartless. 'He’s not a student of anything other than protecting his image. What he cares about is how he’s perceived, not the nuts and bolts of things. He is essentially a performance artist.' The Republicans now have a pre-existing condition: They voted for something that will cause them a lot of pain in the future.But in delivering this win for Trump, they may well have delivered a way for Democrats to take the president down.'
