So in a really odd sorta change from the norm, Dana Rohrabacher is suddenly everywhere in Orange County. No, he’s still not holding any town halls. But over the past few days—according to his Facebook page—he’s hosted a community forum about airplane noise, applauded Huntington Beach for its 5th Street downtown upgrade, joined in the celebration at the opening of the Balboa Yacht Club, celebrated the Moulton Niguel Water District’s 3rd annual Love Smart community event, discussed taxation with the Fountain Valley Chamber, plotted strategy with Costa Mesa activists, joined Sheiff Hutchiens at the Laguna Niguel Junior Civic Workshop, on and on and on and …
Interestingly, the one thing Rohrabacher has not done is talk, or defend, Donald Trump in the midst of one of the worst weeks in modern presidential history. He hasn’t Tweeted about Trump, he hasn’t written a Facebook post about Trump. Literally, Donald Trump’s biggest congressional backer has suddenly decided it’s not a subject worth broaching.
Hmm … why do you think this is?
Answer: Because Dana Rohrabacher is surely started to see that 2018 will not be a cakewalk. He is a wounded animal, attached to an incompetent, corrupt president. A few months ago, Rohrabacher never missed an opportunity to attach himself to the president’s loafers. Now, he’s keeping his distance while morphing from Mr. Russia to Mr. All I Think About is My District.
It won’t get easier for the man.
