The contents of the Senate health bill wasn’t the only mystery solved on Thursday. President Trump indicated he has no tapes of his conversations with James Comey (now, the search is on to find out who suggested such a thing in the first place). From the president’s Twitter: “I did not make, and do not have, any such recordings.” (Great, now what am I gonna listen to while I’m searching for the Obama birth certificate?)

+ Seven weeks after hinting he had them, President Trump’s admission that there are no tapes surprised no one (and I’m rounding up). But the suggestion that such tapes existed actually had a pretty big political downside at home, and perhaps and even bigger impact abroad. David Frum with some advice to all future presidents: Never bluff.
