    Like I know Trump is incoherent as hell at the best of times

    But for a statement on ending the shutdown

    This is incredibly unhinged, racist and straight up unintelligible

    So, now that Trumps said the important part, how long before the Senate can convene?

    It's good to know that when you're trying to sneak into the country you can turn both right and left. You can tell he's really done his research on how coyotes work.

    ... Is he still doing the "they cross the border and then turn left" thing?

    Like, even by the standards of "left = bad!" dogwhistles that's an incredibly sad line.

    See through smart walls, ya'll. The future is now.

    Alright. I see two options here.

    The first and most obvious one is that he, as he is want to do, made this up on the spot and has no conscious level of understanding of what he just said.

    The second is that someone has been trying to explain to him how you don't need a wall in order to secure a border and he doesn't understand what's been told to him.

    I kind of want to know which it is, if only to try to keep my brain from breaking itself in figuring out what the hell is going on.

    All opinions are my own and in no way reflect that of my employer.

    I just can't believe a successful businessman can be so bad at ad-libbing.

    I mean, you can argue he's not a successful businessman, but even still, his ability to speak publicly is atrocious.

    Talking about Congress finally putting partisanship behind them.

    Lol and by that he means they are basically going back to the bill that had already passed the senate and then the house shortly after at the start of this fiasco before he threw a fit. /facepalm.

    Ahhhh I see what he's doing.

    He keeps claiming this is a crisis, a health crisis, a humanitarian crisis, etc. He's trying to lay the groundwork for an emergency now so that it's not a surprise when he tries it.

    Won't change anything though.

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

    CNN and NPR are also calling it a deal

    He's now talking about Catch and Release, and how you can't release them where they came from, so now they are in places you "least expect" - and we do as little releasing as possible, but they are coming by hundreds of thousands.
