“Supporting Josh Hawley was the worst decision I’ve ever made in my life,” declares legendary Missouri Senator John Danforth. Simon & Shuster pulled the plug on a book by Hawley, scheduled for publicans and release by June. They want nothing to do with him.

With the end coming, Trump lashed out in rage at Vice President Mike Pence for putting the Constitution and the law above the lawless desires of a president who lost it all while holed up in the White House, refusing to even go before the American public and disavow the actions of his followers.
