Best quote of the article:
“President Trump has been putting out a lot of optimistic tweets about the midterm elections but there is a real concern among Republican operatives and donors he is totally delusional about the chances of taking back the House,” Reston explained.

“She went on to add that Trump may be in the dark because no one close to him is willing to tell him the truth.”

No shit sherlock, after you see umpteen messengers beheaded, you might want to keep your tongue in your mouth, literally.
