sad without the exclamation point

Trump rebukes Republicans who do 'very little to protect their President'

President Trump ended his weekend lamenting in the third person the lack of support he has from his fellow members of the GOP.

In between messages about "the disastrous ObamaCare" and "the phony Russian Witch Hunt," Trump tweeted about his disappointment, saying, "It's very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President." In the replies, many people helpfully pointed out that elected Republicans are there to serve the voters in their states, not Trump.

He didn't call out any of the ungrateful Republicans by name, but the president must be really hurting, as there was nary an exclamation point in sight.
