"Larry Irving noted that Trump and Ryan decided to have a celebratory drink at the White House. It recalled to me this verse.

"The King's order was, by command of the King, sent forth by speedy messengers, and so the matter was known in Shushan; the king and Haman sat down to drink together, while in the city of Shushan was great consternation." -- Esther 3:14.

(Facebook post by Harold Feld, 2017-05-04 Just in case any of my friends are unfamiliar with this part of the Bible: Haman is not the good-guy in this story.)

But in the original story, the King was a decent guy who got played for a patsy, not the con man trying to do the playing.
