    a nice piece detailing precisely all the ways the GOP avoided Wall funding legislation over the last two years:

    written by a conservative, btw.

    and this comments from another conservative:

    Dan McLaughlin @baseballcrank
    As unreasonable & extreme as the Democrats' position has been, @NoahCRothman details how the wall funding crisis was caused by Republicans failing to make a deal among themselves when they didn't need D votes, & Trump failing to prioritize one.

    Dan McLaughlin
    @baseballcrank
    As a matter of pure politics, Trump needs to claim he got something he can call "the Wall," & Democrats need to say they stopped him.

    But it was obvious two years ago that both of these things were true. Neither the White House nor Congressional Rs planned ahead for them.

    As only he can, @peterbakernyt steps back and looks deeply at each time Trump has met Putin as president and why those meetings are so troubling nyti.ms/2RR75G5

    George Conway
    @gtconway3d
    “As Mr. Trump was ... heading back to Washington, he telephoned a Times reporter and argued that the Russians were falsely accused. ... Later on the same flight ..., Mr. Trump huddled with aides to decide how to respond to the emerging story ... about the Trump Tower meeting.”

    In Hamburg, Trump said Putin denied election hack but told him that "if we did, we wouldn’t have gotten caught because we’re professionals." Trump said: "I thought that was a good point because they are some of the best in the world."

    America first...unless Russia was involved because if Russia was involved, they're too good for us to catch.

    So America is second?
    The amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude larger than is required to produce it.

    Amazing how despite complete chaos, the market has been plowing up since Christmas Eve. We are well overdue for consolidation and need to set a higher low, but the bulls are completely in control.

    Dow is where it was a month ago now. Down near 3000 points from 3 months ago, and 2000 points from 1 year ago.

    You're just mad that Mr. Trump enjoys good ol' fashioned American cuisine that he paid out of pocket to beautiful athletes.

    Nah, I'm just right that the fake trump-bubble of 2017 was a mirage, and that the last year of correction was expected.

    Per @mkraju, the WH is lobbying Republican Senators not to sign a letter asking Trump to reopen the gov for 3 weeks while they work on an immigration deal. The letter is being worked on by Graham and Coons, but would represent a break in the "unity" Trump has been touting.
