Here's how much the wall would cost if we made it out of the $20 bricks the Trump campaign wants to send to Pelosi and Schumer.
Yesterday I wrote about a bad poll for Trump which spurred a metric ton of by-now-expected "lol polls" responses. So, here is a hopefully complete explanation of why your polls-are-bad take is itself bad.
If Trump were impeached, it would take 20 Republican senators to remove him from office. 14 sitting Republicans supported impeaching or removing Clinton for obstruction of justice.
Trump's letter to Pelosi wasn't really petulance. It was of a piece with his consistent strategy from his first day as a candidate: Throwing punches at people his base hates.
Giuliani: There was no collusion because this specific standard applied to this specific person hasn't been proven.
Also Giuliani: Mueller is compromised because one footnote in a document applied to a tangential campaign figure after leaving the campaign may have been incomplete.
A remarkably bad new poll for Trump: A quarter of his supporters aren't committed to voting for him in 2020 and among independents, who he won in 2016, 62 percent plan to vote against him.
1. The Cohen online-poll-rigging-and-stiffing-the-vender fits with the paid actors at Trump's campaign launch.
2. The rigging might also have violated campaign finance laws.
"Most magazines don't want the subjects that they're photographing to look like goofballs."
Three of the eight people who've won a presidential nomination since 2000 announced between June 14 and June 16.
That fake Washington Post website has an article called "A look at the 64 bills."
Now, so does the real Post website.
On average, in Post-ABC polling over the course of his presidency, nearly three-quarters of Americans have a strong opinion on Trump -- mostly negative.
Not only do most Americans oppose building more wall on the border, most Americans oppose compromising on that position in order to reopen government.
Trump outlined his views on America's support for NATO 32 years ago in an interview with Larry King.
Trump said he wasn't familiar with the Steve King issue. Given his choice in cable news networks, that's not a surprise.
That Clemson victory dinner at the White House? By my estimate, $3,000 spent on 310,000 calories.
Trump's praise of Buchanan's essay on immigration isn't only ironic because he once called him a Hitler lover. It's also ironic coming as Steve King is under fire for much the same rhetoric.
Trump's shutdown strategy isn't convincing anyone, isn't earning support and is pushing his approval downward.
With The Post's reporting on Trump's efforts to keep his conversations with Putin private, it's worth walking through how his first conversation with Putin unfolded -- the day before he wrote a misleading statement about the Trump Tower meeting.
Maybe Trump is a Russian agent. Maybe he's instead got a strategy for building a stronger relationship with Russia at odds with the D.C. establishment. Or maybe there's a third option.
The gaping hole in Trump's rhetoric about how Democrats once supported building barriers on the border.
Trump's effort to blur the Russia investigation by focusing on the nebulous term "collusion" continues apace.
Curious what sorts of things have been deemed national-emergency-worthy in the past? Alllllllllow me.
Ways that Mexico would pay for the wall, per Trump at various points:
- Writing a check or else
- Revised trade deals
- A tax
- Being cowed by not getting a meeting
- Getting out-dealed
Trump said that human traffickers use "unbelievable vehicles" to speed past the Border Patrol in the deserts of Arizona and Texas. Sure, if a Honda Civic is unbelievable.
For every step forward (the administration copping to a bad bit of data), Trump's tweets take two steps back.
If you, too, have cross-referenced Russian Facebook ads with target states by month prior to the election and would then like to argue that there was a data-focused strategy deployed that depended on insights from the Trump campaign, OK. Let's debate.
Finally wrote about Trump's campaign-trail explanation of how he'd manage Congress: Just like the NYC zoning board.
