The bitter tone the left has taken toward the GOP, both in media and entertainment, made the shooting of Republicans practicing baseball quite predictable.

So a special counsel has been hired, former FBI Director Robert Mueller, to look into something about Trump — I think. Mueller is well respected by members of Congress on both sides of the aisle and has their unwavering support — right up until he renders a conclusion different from their own theory. Then he will suck and be the worst person in Washington, and there will be calls for him to be investigated.

On Sunday, Donald J. Trump used golf to woo a member of the more conservative Freedom Caucus into seeing things his way and to try to forge an understanding on moving forward on important matters like Obamacare reform. Invitee Sen. Rand Paul tweeted: "I had a great time today with @realDonaldTrump and believe we are getting closer to an agreement on health care!"

Hart: Fix Obamacare right

Story Hart: Fix Obamacare right

In large measure, the reason Donald Trump was elected against the desires of the GOP, and later the Democrats, is that he is really neither. The inability to get the health care revision bill passed last week emphasizes why Americans elected Trump: to break up the caucuses that are driven by special interests and to get things done in Washington. He is not a politician, which is why this seems so awkward, but it's for the best.

Story Hart: Taking away Americans' guns won't win the 'War on Terror'

The Orlando gay nightclub shooter was on the FBI watch list. He was turned in to the FBI again by a gun shop owner for trying to buy 1,000 rounds of ammunition and a bulletproof vest. And he swore allegiance to ISIS in Arabic during the shooting. Obama's feds are still trying to find his motive.

Story Hart: Who treats women worse: Trump or the Clintons?

Now that she knows Donald Trump is her November opponent, Hillary Clinton had The New York Times do a hit piece Sunday on him and his "women issues." It's curious; Trump has been running for more than a year, in primaries against as many as 16 other GOP candidates, and "the Great Gray Lady" just now decided to run the piece.

Recently released statistics show that the percentage of adults under age 30 who own a business is the lowest in 30 years. Today, only 3.6 percent own a stake in a private company, compared with 6.1 percent in 2010. Even more troubling: This number was 10.6 percent in 1989.

Story Hart: #OscarsSoWhite and #HollywoodSoLeftist

Those in the entertainment business took some time off from giving each other awards to give each other awards and talk about race Sunday at the Oscars.

It was a great blow to freedom and to the Constitution when Justice Antonin Scalia died suddenly. I predict that, in a closely watched and contentious decision, the Supremes vote 5-3 to buy flowers for his funeral.

Story Hart: Cuba is an untaught lesson on perils of socialism

I'm just back from Cuba, where I observed that, while Cubans are realizing the futility of central command-and-control government, we are embracing it. Cuba and the U.S. are like ships passing in the night.

As the corruption exposed by Hillary Clinton's emails — and the use of the Clinton Crime Family Foundation to launder political shakedown money — percolates, she might need another sex scandal from Bill to divert attention from her.

Story Hart: Obama a racial divider, not uniter

I head to Cuba this week to see what 50 years of socialism have done to that country's economy and to the well-being of the citizens. I want to get there before "normalization," meaning when there are a CVS and a Pure Barre on every corner.

Story Hart: Government the biggest Powerball winner

The record Powerball lottery jackpot, purportedly $1.5 billion, produced three winners last week, each of whom will get a lump sum of about $330 million, which is the most money anyone (if you don't count Prince Charles) has gotten for doing nothing.
