Was it just me, or was that Donald, Chuck and Nancy show last night a complete waste of air time and overhyped rhetoric?
Of course, to me, Madame Speaker Pelosi and Mr. Majority Leader Schumer had the truer facts and the better arguments. But that’s almost certainly because I thought so before the show started.
Factcheck.org found a number of factual assertions from the president’s presentation that required, shall we say, clarification.
Yikes. Not only a pointless dialogue of the deaf, but poorly performed. Is it possible that the current incumbent used to be a TV star? The best thing about his presentation was that he didn’t bring up the threat of an emergency declaration that might turn into a constitutional crisis. I seriously wonder whether our dear old Constitution is up to the strain that might bring.
My favorite was when Trump claimed to have changed his demand from a “concrete wall” to a “steel barrier” because that, he said, is what Democrats prefer. Hard to be more bipartisan that that, don’t you think? But do they thank him? No.
