It’s fairly obvious that, like most Americans, Sen. Pat Toomey doesn’t care much for the current occupant of the Oval Office. Every time Trump wanders into some domestic, foreign, legal or cultural fiasco of his own making, Pennsylvania’s junior senator goes into radio silence. When finally cornered, as he was following Trump’s tangled dismissal of FBI Director James Comey, Toomey mumbles something about “unfortunate timing” or some such, and then half-heartedly mouths the GOP’s party-line defense of Trump’s latest indefensible act. He’s like the little kid playing centerfield, hoping against hope that no one hits the ball to him.
