Move aside Plato’s cave, the Senate floor now has the allegory of President Donald Trump. “Today I’d like to propose a thought experiment. Imagine President Trump has been propelled into the White House with 300 electoral votes,” Sen. Ben Sasse said on the Senate floor. “The first hundred days are huge. He signs an order that turns the Peace Corps into stone masons to build the southern wall, he shudders the Department of Education, and by executive order he turns the Department of Interior into the classiest oil company the world has ever known.”
