Today’s “Phrase of the Day” is “have only oneself to blame“ and it is a phrase meaning “to be (only) responsible for something (bad/unpleasant) that has happened”.
Example Sentence: After all, Mr. Trump has not been punished for his transgressions (violation/breach) against tradition, decency, and the law. Instead, he has been rewarded. He thinks he can get away with (escape blame/punishment for) almost anything. The Republican party has only itself to blame for incubating (supporting & aiding the development of) Trumpism, a parasitical (bloodsucking/exploitative) ideology that threatens to take over the host.
