We were going to trash Time for its choice for person(s) of the year, but we have to talk about President Trump’s taking on Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer over border security. The exchange nearly lasted 20 minutes, but it’s pure gold. After a prolonged back-and-forth, it’s pretty clear that Chuck and Nancy are going to have to play hardball if they don’t want to get outmaneuvered by the president. Trump was adamant that he would shut down the government if he doesn’t get a bill that adequately secures the border, saying he would shut it down, and not blame Chuck; Schumer shut down the government earlier this year for illegal aliens and failed. He tried to get concessions for DACA—and it blew up in the Left’s faces.
The liberal media has decided to award themselves person(s) of the year. They describe themselves as the guardians, despite their serial failure to cover the Trump White House accurately. They trip, they fall, they get bashed, and then say that such criticism is an attack on American republicanism. It’s not. It’s just Trump calling you out for being total garbage in your reporting and dishing out straight up fake news. Often, the media is the cause of their flogging. Oh, and Jamal Khashoggi, who is one of the people named, who was allegedly murdered by Saudi intelligence agents, isn’t Walter Cronkite; he was an anti-Semitic, pro-terrorist columnist. The point is, he wasn’t a saint—and his death wouldn’t have been weaponized the way it has been if Obama were in office.
Katie discussed the not-so-new news that the Women’s March is a bastion of anti-Semitism and all over straight trash. All of the key people are Louis Farrakhan disciples, so the apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.
As for Storm’s smorgasbord, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is about to bring a revised criminal justice reform bill to the floor. Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry says we didn’t land on the moon; NASA has invited him out to tour the lunar lab and examine moon rocks.
Also, did you know that if asylum seekers don’t show up for court, no arrest warrant is issued, unlike Americans who skip court dates? Again, not really earth-shattering news, but a group of GOP senators is trying to get the WALL bill passed that would allow for such warrants to be issued against illegal aliens skipping court.
