    This morning I saw an editorial from someone on the Washington Post saying that Trump clearly “won” the debate last night.  The writer said that he came off looking “Presidential” while Nancy Pelosi looked irrational.  Gosh, did I watch a different address in some parallel universe?  (I did also watch the History channel’s “Project Blue Book”… hmm…)  It was clear to ME that Trump was simply reading a speech that someone wrote for him.  He did didn’t sound like himself at all.  When did he ever hold the hand of someone suffering?  When has he even noticed anyone but himself?  Honestly I don’t understand what he thinks he’s doing.  It seems to me that he’s just digging his own grave with the border wall hysteria, unless he’s desperately trying to divert attention from something else that he doesn’t want anyone to pay attention to (like the Mueller investigation).  Does he seriously believe that the American people have an attention span as short as his own?

    I can’t verify any of this of course, but much of it is public knowledge and a matter of connecting dots. If the conspiracy theory he lays out here is real, it just proves that conspiracy theorists are useless, because when you have a real one, they miss it.

    I was talking to a friend who puts forth this theory — the Wall is just Trump’s way of getting back at the Democrats for winning so many seats in the last election.   He can shut down the government and put all those people out of work without worrying about being held responsible for it.  If the Democrats back down, he wins.  If they don’t back down, he still wins because the people who voted for him will blame the Democrats anyway.  As far as he’s concerned, there is no down side.
