Trump won the night. Schumer and Pelosi lost.

This was posted on WaPo... I'm shocked they would allow such an article.

President Trump did something Tuesday night that he has rarely done since taking office: He used the presidential bully pulpit to reach beyond his hardcore base of supporters to make his case to the American people as a whole.

Speaking from the Oval Office for the first time during his presidency, Trump embraced our country’s tradition as a nation of immigrants, declaring “America proudly welcomes millions of lawful immigrants who enrich our society and contribute to our nation.” He then offered a cogent explanation why he believes we face what he called “a humanitarian crisis — a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul” along our southern border.

He was, in short, presidential.

Democrats insisted on equal time, which is highly unusual for presidential addresses other than the State of the Union. It was a mistake. In contrast to Trump, Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (N.Y.) came across as small and intransigent.

They charged him with using the “backdrop of the Oval Office to manufacture a crisis, stoke fear and divert attention from the turmoil in his administration.” They were partisan and petty, while Trump came across as reasonable and even compassionate.

To normal Americans watching in the heartland, and who are not steeped in Trump hatred, the president must have seemed like the adult in the room.

Until now, Trump has owned the 18-day government shutdown that prompted this address, because he’s the one who started it. But if Democrats continue to attack him, and won’t entertain any compromise, soon the shutdown will be all theirs — because they’re the ones who have refused to end it.

That is pretty funny, so incredibly removed from the reality of what the WaPo actually publishes.

WaPo is nothing but another mouthpiece of the Democratic Party. That's why is so amazing that they gave any time at all to letting someone praise Trump's actions.


In case you do not remember, WaPo is not a mouthpiece and gives equal time to both sides. This article was written by a Republican

Marc A. Thiessen
Marc Thiessen writes a twice-weekly column for The Post on foreign and domestic policy. He is a fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and the former chief speechwriter for President George W. Bush.

A lot of their opinion articles are written by conservatives.


Dislike due to blatant lie. The problem isn’t their opinion pieces. The problem is their “news” articles ARE the opinion pieces.

Why would you repeat the SAME lie over again, when anyone paying attention knows how biased WaPo is?

Please provide proof in number of daily articles WaPo publishes that they are equal in number.


OK, I agree that it is not the same # of articles in WaPo and it is Progressive leaning. But many times you can find opinion pieces from very reputable conservatives.

You can but the ratio is literally 10 to 1.

So, here's a recap:

The Southern border is approximately 1954 miles long.

Currently, there is approximately 700 miles of fencing/border wall.

The Democrats never had an issue with a fence or wall before, there are multiple videos and printed statements confirming that. Guess when a big section of fencing was built?

...."But some 700 miles of border fencing had already been completed along the country's nearly 2,000-mile border with Mexico, much of it during Barack Obama's presidency, as part of the Secure Fence Act of 2006, which was signed by George W. Bush. It was constructed using mostly the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the National Guard, according to the Congressional Research Service. "

Wait, what.... the fencing was built during the Obama Presidency??? Say it isn't so!!!

But, NOW, a fence is "immoral"???? Really???

Liberalism and being a Democrat is definitely a Mental Disease.
