Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America are glad to see Republicans hold on to a pair of North Carolina congressional seats, including one that Democrats were hoping would be a harbinger of 2020. They also shudder as Iranian President Hassan Rouhani cheers the exit of National Security Adviser John Bolton and now urges President Trump to end the maximum pressure campaign. And they groan as Trump Campaign Manager Brad Parscale openly forecasts a Trump political dynasty.

    The dynasty thing sounds like a subordinate flattering his boss. The boss likes to be flattered.

    The Trump kids don’t appear to be idiots — so the Trump Dynasty has one up on the Kennedy Dynasty already!

    Of course, the stupid but good-looking Kennedys had the support of the media, while the Trumps face unremitting hostility. 

    I was about to say that made a dynasty impossible — but then it occurred to me, a Trump kid moving to “Trump Country” to run might work, just like Hillary in New York.
