The Guests

Maggie Haberman

“I think what’s going on is you have a president whose advisors broadly question whether he wants the second term, whether he is actually trying to win right now. I think that four more years does not sound great to him. I think he’s tired. I think he doesn’t particularly know what he wants to do with a second term and … I think that what he has done is set up villains to blame if he loses.”
