    Of course he is, he's a grifting, lying piece of shit. But he still openly agreed to sign a clean CR, so please dear god above let it happen fast enough he can't change his mind.

    I would hope he would have learned his lesson here and won't just shut it all down again in 3 weeks because he doesn't have a wall. Not going to hold my breath on that though.

    As expected, he's claiming he made a "deal". So he's trying to sell this as as win.

    My stream cut out, but is he even calling it a "clean CR" or anything to that effect? I'm guessing no.

    Oh wow, now he’s saying we don’t need a continuous wall and that he never called for one.

    He's caving for 3 weeks. Probably longer from the stance he is giving here. Also looks like he is willing to accept anything going to the border, including previous funding levels, as a win.

    I think he just said that walls keep out good people. "Smart walls."

    Made of steel, very important to be see-through, and equipped with cutting edge tech, including drones.

    "We do not need 2,000 miles of concrete wall from sea to shining sea. We never proposed that, we never wanted that, because we have natural structures that are already there."

    Down. To. A. T.

    Pelosi knows exactly what her strategy is, and Trump can’t have one for more than five minutes after someone says something that sets him off. I expect there’ll be ever increasing extensions under the guise of “negotiations” and “big wins!” and so on until his term ends.

    It’s almost as though Pelosi has two generations of experience dealing with cranky petulant children.

    I believe a House Dem earlier this week suggested they could look at a "Smart Wall" (not a physical barrier, just an increase in surveillance tech to make sure our thinly spread border patrol knows how many people they can't actually stop) as an alternative.

    Claiming now that women are brought into the country, completely duct-taped up, even to to the point that they can't breathe (presumably, they all die?).

    And that they never come through ports of entry, because then someone would see 4 women in a car.
