With his usual unintended irony, Donald Trump is p.o.ed at Mitch McConnell for not keeping the Senate in session and wrapping the impeachment trial sham up with a pretty ribbon so that he could take a victory lap for the base at the State of the Union address — while he’s out playing golf.
Source close to Trump on Senate delaying verdict in the impeachment trial until next week: “(Republican) senators should have stayed in on Saturday. They got rolled.” Source added “It’s a terrible thing."

McConnell might have told Trump to chill, because William Barr was sitting on two dozen emails, which bear directly on what Trump was saying at the time Ukraine aid was withheld. Apparently Trump has grudingly gone along with McConnell, because he really wanted to show off for his disciples at the SOTU. And we know that Trump doesn’t like his childish impulses stifled. Showing off in public is all the Child in Chief lives for.
As I’ve said before, State of the Onion is more like it.
