Donald Trump came in with a lot of hype and tries to keep the momentum with his Apprentice type theatrics but I feel yesterday's vote in Alabama shows his days in the White House are numbered because he will be voted out before he can have a second term.

President Donald Trump woke to a self-inflicted political disaster Wednesday morning that even he could not chalk up to fake news, after Republican Roy Moore crashed to defeat in the Alabama Senate race.
Completely disregarding the advice of top Republicans, Trump had thrown himself unequivocally and comprehensively behind Moore -- and so the deeply flawed Republican candidate's upset loss on Tuesday is now his own.
In an effort to save face on Wednesday, Trump insisted he had actually had it right all along -- recalling his earlier support for incumbent Sen. Luther Strange in the primary.
But the stunning win by Democrat Doug Jones in one of the nation's most conservative states raised questions not just about Trump's political acumen but also over whether his remarkable run, in which he crushed convention and defied political gravity, is beginning to run out of steam. Ref. CNN.
President Trump is privately striking a less agitated tone on the Russia investigation, sources say, even insisting he'll soon be cleared in writing. But his new approach has some allies worried he's not taking the threat of the probe seriously enough.
Trump has spent much of his first year in office so enraged by the federal investigation into Russian meddling in last year's election that lawmakers who work with him tried to avoid the issue entirely and his friends worried that Trump might rashly fire the special counsel. But in recent weeks, Trump has privately seemed less frustrated about the investigation, according to multiple sources who have spoken with the President.
There's no indication from special counsel Robert Mueller or his team that the probe is in its final stages. A tipping point in the showdown could come as soon as this week when Trump's private lawyers and Mueller meet, sources familiar with the matter told CNN. Ref. CNN.
