Democrats tap Georgia’s Stacey Abrams to deliver the response to Trump’s State of the Union address

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

Trump is a fraud
Perhaps the greatest danger to Trump’s political future is the cost of these negative perceptions to his brand. The president was elected, in part, by giving his supporters an impression of business acumen. This was, in fact, the image carefully cultivated by book publishers and TV producers. And by Trump himself as a presidential candidate, who claimed to be a peerless negotiator, an unrivaled businessman and an excellent manager.

These claims can now be believed only by the ideologically addled.

The problem for Trump is not only that he lost the most visible and important confrontation of his presidency — in negotiating with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) over the government shutdown. It is that his methods are so blunt and transparent. His typical tactic is to raise the stakes of a negotiation impossibly high — a government shutdown or nuclear war — then to make a maximal demand and trust in the triumph of his stronger will. It is a form of negotiation ended by someone saying “uncle.” That Trump ended up in abject humiliation was perhaps fated by biology: You can angrily hold your breath for only so long.

...

Meanwhile, in a variety of global negotiations, American opponents need only master one method: flattery. In Trump’s words, “I know people, because deals are people. . . . If [Russian President Vladimir] Putin respects me, and if Putin wants to call me brilliant, and other things that he said which were, frankly, very nice, I’ll accept that.” Taken at face value, Trump is arguing: Deals are people. People who praise me have good judgment. Thus, people who praise me make good deals. Hearing these sentiments from an American president is enough to gag a historian. It is pathetic gullibility elevated into the realm of theory. It should concern us that the American president is a source of global derision and national shame.

...

Those 37 percent who approve of Trump’s performance may point to the state of the economy or the composition of the Supreme Court. They may be impressed by his destruction of norms or enthused by his promotion of exclusion. They may want a president who speaks his mind, even when it is hateful gibberish. They may want a president who is an institutional arsonist, even if the result is mere destruction.

But no one can reasonably claim to believe in Trump’s brand as it was sold in 2016. We have plumbed the shallows of his boasts. They are refuted lies. And whatever else the president may be, he is a fraud.

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

Stacey is a perfect person to deliver the response. She isn't currently in office so it doesn't handicap any legislation that she is sponsoring or anything, but more than that she is a fighter. She won't pull punches and won't be afraid to call out Trump's lies. I also think there is a good chance she runs for Senate in 2020 and Democrats really need that seat to be in play if they want to flip the Senate.

Schumer should not have participated in answering Trump's last address. Getting someone who registers as human is good. Abrams more than qualifies.

We've had warnings for eons now and nobody's given a **** to do anything about it and too many are fighting it because money.

Yeah that breathalyzer is court ordered. I wonder how that was never discovered. Aren't arrest records public?

Remember the laughable claim made during the campaign that Bannon doesn't drink? Sure that gin blossom just created itself.

Dems are getting smart and going with "Keep right-wing media permanently distracted by women of color who aren't running for president" strategy.

The funny thing is even if right-wing media catches on, they just can't help themselves. It's like putting a loaded crack pipe on the table in front of Rob Ford.
