Trump’s Troglodyte Wall Diplomacy Stunt Did Not Go Over and Mike Pence Was Someplace...

Another day, another travesty in Trump World. GOP strategist Steve Schmidt put in his two cents worth, commenting on today’s historical tableau in the Oval Office consisting of: 1. Chuck Schumer openly laughing in Trump’s face, 2. Nancy Pelosi needlingTrump with all the finesse of a matador maneuvering a bull with a muleta, before the final plunge to the aorta; and as if that wasn’t captivating enough, 3. Mike Pence evidently fell asleep while praying for The Rapture to rescue him. Here’s a partial transcript of Schmidt’s take on the “fund the wall or else” festivities. Trump as tough guy did not play out. Trump as dummy-out-of-his-league-trying-to-bluff, did, and this afternoon’s meeting was a harbinger of more absurdities to come when the new congress begins doing its job in January. Schmidt: “They’re [Schumer and Pelosi] chess players sitting across from a checkers player. Everything they needed to prevail in the fight they put on the table today, from branding this the “Trump Shut Down”…After two years of non stop lying, nonsense, if the president is going to try to produce a show in the Oval Office, to be packaged, pulled apart, for the propaganda effort that will commence this evening on Fox, why not? And so, when Donald Trump is sitting there, why not say, ‘You deployed the United States military near the border for a publicity stunt. Wasn’t it Mexico who was going to pay for the wall, why have you failed to deliver on that promise?’ “This is the nonsense that must go on behind closed doors when he sits with leaders from other nations. Can you imagine him sitting across from the president of China, from Vladimir Putin, from the British Prime Minister, from the Canadian Prime Minister, what a fool they must think he is.” “Imagine sitting across from that, when you see the bluster, the acting, the ignorance, the casual lying, all of it on full display for the American people. It’s not just the investigations, it’s not just that the economy is showing signs of cratering, it’s that he sees the walls closing in on all of it. Increasingly, he sees no place to run. He is fighting out of a very small,diminishing corner with this type of stunt today.” Schmidt, speaking on an MSNBC panel with Nicole Wallace and Elise Jordan, then addressed the issue of what the hell was going on with Mike Pence? “If you sit like that on a commercial airliner, what will happen is all the flight attendants will have a meeting up front to decide which one is going to check his pulse,” said Schmidt. “Mike Pence looks like he’s at a strip club — he’s horrified,” said Jordan. “I want whatever he’s taken, that’s some kind of Zen,” said Wallace. “What’s amazing is he can keep his entire body so perfectly still, we see slight movement in the head — incredible posture,” said Schmidt. Now bear in mind, Mike Pence has had a very stressful week and it’s only Tuesday. Pence’s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, was offered the position of Trump’s chief of staff, and he turned it down. Do you have any idea what that means? In Trump’s Mafia-esque ideology, Pence is Trump’s underboss, and some lousy capo of his, Ayers, has the nerve to […]
