Re: “Tuesday's open line

"The Democrats are obstructing you from getting a massive tax cut." (If you're really, really rich.)

"From welfare to work. From dependence to independence. From poverty to posterity."

"We will do . . . we will build . . . our greatest creations . . . are just waiting to be brought to life."

"American hands."

American boilerplate to get-it-over-with applause.

"We can do anything. We can dream anything."

"One flag. One home. One glorious destiny."

"We're all made by the same almighty - "

You know what, Rhett?

Fuck off.

Re: “Tuesday's open line

But wait. There's more.

Now it's about the statues. "They want to take away our history. To take away our culture."

But now it's about the workers. "Building our future with American labor" boilerplate. The audience applauds to stay awake.

Trans Pacific Partnership.

NAFTA. We'll probably terminate it.

Bullet points he knows zip about.

Paris Climate Accord.

Jobs. Unemployment. Doctored stats. Massaged reports.

Wasn't it about here that Rhett told Scarlett he didn't give a damn and walked away?

Re: “Tuesday's open line

Well, he's welcoming the local pols to the stage so it's over. "Never let them go, folks!"

Trump's just one of the boys.

Now he's reading again - his finale. Trying to rouse himself and everybody else.

Now he's winging it.

"Most people think I'm crazy to have done this. And I think they're right," he jokes. (About being POTUS.)

Donald - you know I loathe you, but that's the first honest thing I've ever heard you say in ANY media!

Apparently, paranoid bipolar narcissists get it right twice a day.

Re: “Tuesday's open line

Tired. Not making any sense. Can't read the teleprompter. Riffing more.

Re: “Tuesday's open line

"We've gotten more legislation in seven months than even Truman. But those liars back there [the media] won't tell you."

Uh, no you didn't, Donald.

People are dozing off behind you. Tantrum time.

Re: “Tuesday's open line

"We're gonna get rid of Obamacare. I will never stop."

Between Tweets?

"Obamacare's a disaster. It's gone."

Not even Republicans want it gone, anymore, Donald. Snap out of it.

Re: “Tuesday's open line

Love how Trump claims the Democrats just obstruct, have no ideas, no vision - since they voted against repealing the Affordable Care Act that everybody loves (with needed tweaks) - which Obama's administration finally put into place despite Republican obstructionism to Obama's every move (even to his very birth - which was NOT in Kenya, Donald).
