Predictably, a teleprompter speech is not going well for Trump. I don't know why anyone there thought this would be enough for him to turn it around.

Trump doesn't care.  He wants his wall.  He'll do anything to get his wall.

 

But, like you said, Wendy, even if he does declare a national emergency, it'll be tied up for years in court.  It won't be a total victory, but it'll be something.

Sometimes, I think they let him have moments like this 1) because they know the man is a narcissist and they know this is the best way to deal with a narcissist, and 2) they get a big kick out of watching him behave even more like a buffoon.

It was a weak nothingburger, not the swing for the fences Kushner apparently hoped for. He will blame his staff for "making him do that" and making him look bad, as he always does.

 

Pelosi and Schumer's response is good. I kind of wish someone else was giving it, but there's only so many ways you can do that in this situation.

well it sounds like he talked for less than ten minutes, lying through his teeth, sucking his lips and looking like a spray can of orange sun tan exploded on him.

Nothing, not even the president of the United States, will keep me from my "Law & Order" binge-a-thons on WEtv.

AOC is on MSNBC doing what she's supposed to do: Be forceful for the Democrats in front of a camera.

Good for her.  She's learning fast.

As long as she keeps learning I'll give her another chance. She did well on 60 Minutes for the most part (and won over my mother, who had her fill of the radical fringe when she was one of them in '68).

 

Meanwhile, Bernie's ego-grabbing speech focused largely on (wait for it) economic inequality.

I think it's less about the public being won over and more about the Republicans staying in line and the media doing their usual handstands.
