Which brings us to the third reason why the kangaroo court is worth watching. It reminds once again why Trump was elected and why his presidency is so important.

Many voters looked at Washington without hope or trust in either party. They saw the Dems as too liberal and willing to stop at nothing to win, the two main legacies of the Obama presidency.

Those voters looked at Republicans with equal disgust for other reasons. They were the errand boys of Wall Street and big business but, even worse, folded like cheap suits on everything they were elected to do.

The relative handful of true conservatives in their midst, the Freedom Caucus, are treated like crazy aunts. The others, like Speaker Paul Ryan, long for the one thing liberals will never give them — respect. And so they ultimately stand for nothing because anything important means they must buck the swamp, which they won’t do.
