The problem is obvious: the top Republicans, McConnell, Ryan, McCain. They were and continue to be the problem. CIA is still a political agency and it isn't Trump's party just yet. Most of Trump's supporters despise McConnell and Ryan.

The only people that failed to see the humor in Trump's statement were either the "mainstream media (drive-by media) OR people who live in: NYC, Boston, Chicago, LA/SF, and the Beltway. These "sanctuaries" are notorious for being hotbeds of liberalism, and the humorless and soullessness outlook of the liberal ideology. The crime rates are notorious too.
I hope that Trump does 4 things in his 1st 100 days. 1) Break the spirit of Ryan/McConnell. That shouldn't be hard. 2) Forgot about any thoughts of bi-partisanism. Trump won, so bring his name picks from the business/military communities and keep the professional politicians to a bare minimum. No need to "reach across the aisle" (yuck - a very scary thought). 3) Fast-break his strong-man policies, making the liberal leadership looking even more weak, impotent, and unable to respond. It is really refreshing to hear China spouting off daily about what a "meanie" Mr. Trump is.
Item #4 - Trump should continue to torment the mainstream media. They will never cut him a fair break, so he might as well continue to use his Twitter account. I hope he goes after Bezo's/Amazon/WaPo on anti-trust. WaPo and CNN are the biggest liars in the media.
Remember this: The job of a journalist ISN'T to discover the truth, it is to follow the story and "make it fit" (interesting) to the widest range of readers/viewers. That sells ads so the advertisers can market junk to the readers and viewers they really don't need.
I'd really like to see Rush Limbaugh as head of the FCC.
