Listen: Donald Trump, Nancy Pelosi, President Trump discussed on Jeff Ward and Ed Clements
"Performance art of politics. I'm gonna give them all a are. They all played pretty well for everyone and performance art. In fact, I would say that it played surprisingly well for Donald Trump. I never once anything about factor substance. But in the context of performance art, I'd say scoring for Trump and then score and a for the American public and mocking. Nancy Pelosi's face, Betsy Pelosi merica, let us down with memes. She blinked once last night. I counted. Jeff Nancy Pelosi. Rusted once oh stood by the American public talk about the definition of stiff look at Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer. All right. So here are this is pretty well done. It's not all that complicated. Pretty redundant for the most part thought this was well done. The hill dot com has five takeaways from the Oval Office address last night. And I think most people would agree. This is pretty well summarized prompted not shift the debate point number one some people close to the president had argued that a primetime televised address would be one way. Perhaps the only way the change the contours of the debate over the shutdown if you're scoring that when you'd say nobody chains no change before. But it wasn't a disaster by any stretch for Donald Trump. There was no declaration of national emergency point number two. The pre speech cliffhanger. That's true was whether he would declare. A national emergency during his speech. He did not point number three. The Democrats did what they needed to do. Not quite sure I would agree with that. Because all that matters is performance, art and performance art. They look like fools. They look like all matters of performance art, that's all matters and it played badly. For those two think it was a bad move, the Democrats, the trot those two out there because my favorite moment of the night was the mean to compare them to Beavis and Butthead my favorite show. I loved it. Why why does Nancy Pelosi always have Chucky by her side too? I guess they wanna put a unifying. Classic good. They're made. But that doesn't matter. The Democrats do what they needed to do. If Trump did not triumph. He did not meet with disaster. The hill points, I agree with that the duo spark some adverse social media commentary for their grim faced expressions in more stilted moments the hill dot com rights. Yeah. Because again, we're not really deep people were just ended performance. And it just felt a looked awkward. I go through a few of these. What's the famous painting with the pitchfork? Oh, yeah. I know what you're talking about ever comparison was that look like your parents when you've come home too late. Yeah. They just didn't start so holes together that look, and they can't cooking and not blinking and talking and blinking. Here's Beavis and Butthead those down the list. Let's see point number four speech for the base. Of course was a speech for talk radio to be further carried out by talk radio. One point Trump says how much more American blood must we shed before. Congress does its job. Yeah. It was all about West Virginia, Mississippi and the entire south and many of you listening right now, you got what you wanted there. He had he had that fact about more people will die from drugs in this copies. No matter died in Vietnam. But that's that's true. Though, fifty two thousand Americans died in Vietnam seventy two thousand died while using drugs last year. But I think there's a vast difference because you're talking about seventy two thousand Americans who more than likely woefully enjoyed and took those drugs themselves, you think more than likely to shoot them up more than likely and then finally a mixed bag for the TV networks. Look, I think most human beings that have a life. Were pleasantly surprised. This was ten minutes in done. It came and went and was executed again. I think pretty well. I think it went off about for Trump and TV and the performance itself went off about as well as it did. Because apparently the networks concerned new was just going to ramble. Endlessly, he did to his credit. He didn't he just kept it to the point. Again, the facts don't really matter. It's just how you deliver it. There wasn't any major news. But you didn't think there would be the only cliffhanger really was whether or not he was declared a national emergency that didn't happen. I think it would miserably for Chuck and Nancy as he calls them. Apparently, they already had their prepared statements. Even listen to the president what the president said we didn't have to you could have scripted it out. I mean, we all knew how it's going to play out. Really wasn't there necessarily to change minds as it was to reinforce the impact of it in that regard. I think you did pretty well not to be outdone which cannot be well received by the White House or team Trump, and that is five bucks. News back checking him along the way. Oh. That's just the devil. Right there. Right everyone. That's that's that's that's just not. Doing to be shut down. They're going to be audited for the next thirty years. Fox News anchors Shepard. Smith challenged many of Trump's claims by using the government's numbers. He went point by point. Again. It doesn't really matter. But the fact that he was FOX that did it. Probably does matter and maybe be somewhat of a game changer in terms of Republicans going on FOX and performing. I think that would probably caught a lot of people by surprise there done nothing. New nothing changed. We all get it. I think there's so much rhetoric going out there. And if you look at history, there's a little Bill that was passed in two thousand six call the secure fence act that was supported by Hillary and Barack Obama signed by Bush supported by Schumer that built seven hundred miles of secure fencing, the president wants three new phases at one thousand two hundred and fifty miles by the end of twenty twenty. I I'm a bit confused. What is the difference in what they supported? Thirteen years ago and what's proposed by the president. You're talking five hundred miles of more fence or so, so I I'm tired. I'm well, I know I know why they're fighting it because Donald Trump proposed it not George Bush. He accurately said it. Yeah. So that whatever the price tag is on offense, or whatever that thing is just triplets. Whether or not that thing happened in your lifetime is another debate all to itself interstates left Donald Trump junior. Donald Trump junior is making news again. Yes. Nice job. He's comparing the he goes he goes to Twitter. Yeah. And he says the border wall is like a zoo fence protecting you from animals. Tweets where to go little poet. The Mark Twain of our time Donald Trump junior was the border was like a zoo fence protecting you from the animals. Yes. Not really the great way to sell that thing there. Don, jR. Can't believe I'm saying this. But there's more scooters more scooters. They're everywhere. We've got new types of scooters. Now, this is from KFC dot com. It's reporting Austin I'ts will soon have yet. Another type of electric scooter to choose from as they commute around the city. Ozo- j O has been approved by the city to bring it sit down commuter style scoot. Oh, man. Oh, joe. Let me go. Get fatter everyone. Just get fatter. Oh, Joe scooter, sit more that's the American way Oxnard California base ozo- announced that it will bring it scooters to Austin in a partnership with Austin commuters. LLC wait, you're they are. I know here's the fatboy electric. Here's the mobility scooter battery Ojo commuter scooter. Let's see Jeff, I know. Scooters can go up to twenty miles per hour. They allow users to connect via bluetooth and play stored or streaming music on the speakers, right? So it's like your own little chubby rolling jam box. Looks a little dangerous to me. But it's like a little Motors looks like a little Vespa junior Vespas. Yeah. You know, what you look like if you're a male, you drive, a Vespa you look like a fool. Unless you're skinny and he got a European tight jeans on less you're in Madrid. You look like a fool. You're a date list. You understand that your date Louis Joe? Dipping around. The OJ electric scooter around with your outside speakers, playing one hall and Oates or something. Your fool. Boo. Look how low that seat. Is you see that? Look, I lo- that CD new look. Oh, they moved to see not only are we? Adding more scooters for whatever reason I've yet to figure out it's supposed to be an incredible business. But we're adding now sit down scooters that stream music with outside speakers. Think of anything more irritating than seeing some chubby tourists with the little speaker playing music as they too long without burning any calories whatsoever. Listen, I'm listening if if if they're going to play their music you'd have to mandate, it'd be Austin music. You know what? I mean Willie Ray Benson. Bob schneider. You're at Clark I've given up on saying, I don't get it. So there's something to it. But it seems to me in the more stuff you add on an expense. The more likely it is that stuff has got to be broken. We've already found out that they're ending up in the water came. So now, I'm going to add speakers and streaming music, which I'm gonna guess doesn't go too. Well, in the water, let me tell you what these these don't look. Cheap. These look more expensive. And these look like the easier to ride, and they look like a heck of a lot more safer than the ones. That's the downtown Austin now all the side streets. I don't know who's brother-in-law has a deal. Joe? I don't know who you are. But I'm gonna say it again, your fool your date Lewis loser. I I completely disagree. Jeff, again, you're showing your age, my friend, you're showing your adverse to progress and technology and carbon free society that we live in tell me men that drive Vespas. So that they have a date had sex and twelve years. Well, it probably can't have much performance because of that constant. You can drive a Vesper. If you're in Madrid. You're Austin, Texas, you need to shut your face start walking. Now. See there you sound like you sound like this. Go ahead thorough. Authoritarian. No it all it's bad. Is geek it's bad enough that you're gonna stand up scooter. Now, you're sitting down playing little music on your speakers bad little disco. Tune Ojo your Ocho, you really look foolish. Listen have you where you're wearing loser. On your sleeve. Joe world here. I am. I got burned. No calories. My buddy for commuting. This is not for this. See this year. Joe guy. Good luck to all these. Let's left his office. He's wearing a suit and tie. And he's not going just across the street or down to congress. He's going home K five mile range on this.
