Many media sources across the nation have been discussing President Trump’s hard week, as his administration is dogged by questions about Russia and its inability of the Republicans to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Not everyone attacked the president however, Veteran newsman Brit Hume provided a little perspective in Trump’s defense.
Hume was an outlier though, as people in the mainstream media and those on social media continued to mock President Trump and the GOP, especially over the health care reform troubles:

The health care struggle caused a rift between the president and the House Freedom Caucus, as well as with Senate conservatives, that at times seemed irreparable.
That seems to no longer be the case.
The president did what he usually does on the weekends — he played golf — but this time it was with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, who also happens to be an original member of the Freedom Caucus.
Upon returning from the golf outing, Paul indicated that the battle to repeal Obamacare still has a chance to succeed.
“We had a great day with the president,” Paul said after playing with Trump and White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney. “We did talk about some health care reform. I think the sides are getting closer and closer together. And I remain very optimistic that we will get an ObamaCare repeal.”
Before the round of golf with Paul and Mulvaney, President Trump also expressed a positive attitude about repeal, via Twitter, of course:
Anybody (especially Fake News media) who thinks that Repeal & Replace of ObamaCare is dead does not know the love and strength in R Party!

Paul also took to Twitter to reaffirm his optimism:
I had a great time today with @realDonaldTrump and believe we are getting closer to an agreement on health care!

Mulvaney has yet to comment on the outing.
