Do you trust Fox News to make Trump look good? They tried, but then they had to cut Trump's sound because he was saying things that made him look sick in the head:

Trump at the border describes human trafficking in grisly detail, so grisly that Fox News is uncomfortable:

"They drive. They just go where there’s no security, where you don’t even know the difference between Mexico and the United States. There’s no line of demarcation. They just go out and where there’s no fencing, or walls or any kind, they just make a left into the United States and they come in and they have women tied up. They have tape over their mouths, electrical tape, usually blue tape, as they call it. It’s powerful stuff. Not good. And they have three, four, five of them in vans, or three of them in back seats of cars. And they just drive right in. They don’t go through your points of entry. They just go right through. And if we had a barrier of any kind — a powerful barrier, whether it’s steel or concrete — if we have a barrier, they wouldn’t be able to make that turn. They wouldn’t even bother trying."

Fox News host Dana Perino broke in and Fox News cut away from live coverage of the event.

Unfortunately, or maybe deliberately, FOX did NOT put the video on Youtube.

But you can watch video of Trump making Ms. Perino queasy at

Trump’s disturbing, detailed, and factually dubious description of women being kidnapped — a description that’s become a staple of his case for the border wall — elicited an uncomfortable reaction from many people about Trump’s mental health: "Captive women with tape over their mouths feature prominently in Trump’s inner world."

While Fox News has gone out of its way to protect Trump in the past, it’s unclear whether the network’s decision to cut away from Trump had anything to do with the content of his comments.

White House eyes Army Corps funds to build wall

The White House has begun laying the groundwork for a declaration of national emergency to build President Donald Trump’s border wall, a move certain to set off a firestorm of opposition in Congress and the courts but one that could pave the way for an end to the three-week government shutdown.

It is a face saving move by Trump. He can end the shutdown immediately after declaring an "emergency". He does not have to keep the government shutdown until the Wall is finished. When the courts stop the Corps from building, a month or a year after the declaration of "emergency", Trump could try something else to get his Wall. Maybe another shutdown? Maybe not.

“If there’s a concrete wall in front of you, go through it, go over it, go around it,” Trump told graduates. “But get to the other side of that wall.” Start at 12 minutes, 30 seconds.

Who the f*ck cares who pays for something that won't work?

That's how ignorant Trump followers have become (even dumber). They care more about "beating the Dems" than the things they are arguing about. Meanwhile Russia, China and Iran are having a laugh.

"The Wall" as we all know by now - any of us who read that is - was a simple phrase for Trump, easy to remember and easily understood by even soft leaning white nationalists, as a stand in/code for "we hate ALL immigrants, legal or otherwise."
We can keep arguing about funding and trying to beat the other side, OR we could actually have an intelligent debate about immigration, what's broken and how to fix each part. Except for that Dumpster Fire in chief. He won't do that. Face it - nothing meaningful will get done while he's around.

The funny thing here is that Trump didn't get high ratings. The Dems who debunked him got more viewers.

Ezra Klein writes:

I’ve covered more than my share of shutdowns (to say nothing of debt ceiling crises, sequestration deadlines, and assorted other high-stakes congressional ridiculousness) and I know their rhythms. By now, we should be well into the let’s-make-a-deal stage. By now, congressional staffers should be coming up with all manner of possible bargains, some realistic and some less so. But we’re not.

Before you can imagine a deal you have to believe there’s someone to make a deal with. And that’s where this process is stuck. Congressional Democrats don’t believe they’ve got a partner for a deal. Any deal they make with congressional Republicans — like the spending deal that was supposed to avert this whole shutdown mess in the first place — can be abrogated by a presidential tweet. And any deal they make with President Trump can be abrogated by, well, President Trump.

“Unless the president not only publicly announces support but publishes bill text and whips it, there’s no way it wouldn’t get blown up by Miller and Bannon,” says Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI).

The disillusionment is well earned. Over and over again, Democrats have shaken hands on an immigration deal with Trump, only to see him abandon it as soon as they leave the room. Nor is this ancient history. Trump went back on his word during the negotiations that led to the current shutdown. That was less than a month ago.
