Morning Song – The Room Where It Happens

July 19, 2017

Yesterday began with news that the 8th (and final?) person in the room at Trump Tower last June when 3 top Trump campaign officials (campaign manager Paul Manafort, Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, and Trump scion Donald Trump Jr.) met with a team of Russians and Russian-Americans who claimed to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton as “part of Russia and its government’s support for Mr. Trump” had been identified, and ended with news that Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin had a second, secret meeting at last month’s G20 summit.

Among other things, it’s a vivid reminder that politics—as Hamilton composer and political consultant’s son Lin Manuel-Miranda thoroughly understands—has always been, in part, about being in “The Room Where It Happens”.

No one really knows how the parties get to yes,
The pieces that are sacrificed in every game of chess;
We just assume that it happens,
But no one else is in the room where it happens….
