Manufacturing jobs are real jobs, because uneducated white men can do them.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

So what are the odds at this point that Trump gives the State of the Union in like Alabama? 50-50? It seems clear he's not going to skip it, and I don't see Pelosi backing down...

Yes, typically these rustic peoples are incapable of abstract thought and thus are attracted to the idea of making "things" they can see and touch. Likewise, they are unable to understand the value that FIRE sector employment brings to the human experience. Keep in mind that most of these folks don't even have an Economics degree.

I would like to ask them if they would forego being paid for their job in the name of this security? Because they could donate their pay to federal workers to put their money where their mouth is.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

‘Absolutely out of control’: Cliff Sims’s book depicts life in Trump’s White House
President Trump watched on television, increasingly angry as House Speaker Paul D. Ryan criticized his handling of the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville. He held the remote control “like a pistol” and yelled for an assistant to get the Republican leader on the phone.

“Paul, do you know why Democrats have been kicking your a-- for decades? Because they know a little word called ‘loyalty,’ ” Trump told Ryan, then a Wisconsin congressman. “Why do you think Nancy [Pelosi] has held on this long? Have you seen her? She’s a disaster. Every time she opens her mouth another Republican gets elected. But they stick with her . . . Why can’t you be loyal to your president, Paul?”

The tormenting continued. Trump recalled Ryan distancing himself from Trump in October 2016, in the days after the “Access Hollywood” video in which he bragged of fondling women first surfaced in The Washington Post.

“I remember being in Wisconsin and your own people were booing you,” Trump told him, according to former West Wing communications aide Cliff Sims. “You were out there dying like a dog, Paul. Like a dog! And what’d I do? I saved your a--.”

...

As White House director of message strategy, Sims regularly met Trump at the private elevator of the residence and accompanied him to video tapings — carrying a can of Tresemmé Tres Two hair spray, extra hold, for the boss. At one such taping, about an hour after Trump had tweeted that he saw MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski “bleeding badly from a facelift,” the president sought feedback from Sims and Spicer.

“They’re going to say it’s not presidential,” Trump said, referring to the media. “But you know what? It’s modern-day presidential.” The president then raged about the “Morning Joe” program on which Brzezinski appears and instructed Spicer, “Don’t you dare say I watch that show.”

...

At times, Trump evinced less rage than a lack of interest. Sims recounts one time when Ryan was in the Oval Office explaining the ins and outs of the Republican health-care bill to the president. As Ryan droned on for 15 minutes, Trump sipped on a glass of Diet Coke, peered out at the Rose Garden, stared aimlessly at the walls and, finally, walked out.

Ryan kept talking as the president wandered down the hall to his private dining room, where he flicked on his giant flat-screen TV. Apparently, he had had enough of Ryan’s talk. It fell to Vice President Pence to retrieve Trump and convince him to return to the Oval Office so they could continue their strategy session.

They internalized labor union rhetoric to the point where they feel an inferiority complex for not working with their hands. I mean this seriously.

Making Trump go to Alabama to do the speech would be awesome in general, plus for optics.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Laura Ingraham reported that the people we aren't talking about got invited to the White House. A CBS reporter cited an administration source that it was not the case, at least not during the shutdown - but maybe or maybe not in a couple weeks. Ingraham then backed off, and seemed disappointed because the meeting would be less significant in a couple weeks.

Seeing as Ingraham clearly wants this to happen, and happen soon, it's obviously going to happen and happen soon.

We all know who's really in charge here.

If any MAGA chuds are ever accused of racism via an incomplete narrative, that means that no MAGA chuds are racist, obviously.

re: The Presidency of Donald J. Trump: State of Emergency

Senate Ds and Rs reach compromise that could open the government temporarily

Quote:
The Senate will vote Thursday on two separate bills that would bring an immediate end to the partial government shutdown: one backed by President Trump that includes $5.7 billion for his border wall and another that would simply extend funding for shuttered agencies through Feb. 8.

The plan, a compromise between Senator Mitch McConnell, the majority leader, and Senator Chuck Schumer, the Democratic leader, offers the first hint of a path out of the partial shutdown, which is now in its fifth week and has left 800,000 federal workers without pay. The two announced it Tuesday afternoon on the Senate floor.
Seems like both of them should pass, the House will only pass the one that doesn't have wall funding, then Congress dares Trump to veto something that reopens the government for 3 weeks without his wall funding?
