What was supposedly the big news of the day? Nancy Pelosi announces formal impeachment inquiry of Trump (nbcnews.com).
Did the House vote on anything? No. If all the Democrats vote for impeachment, a bunch of them risk losing their seats, and Pelosi knows it. So nothing has changed. The House will just continue to do what it has been doing. FAKE NEWS!
Trump’s speech at the United Nations, however, matters. He laid out for all to see what the United States stands for under his administration.
- You like what he said? Then give the man your hearty support.
- You don’t like what Trump said? Then you may wish to examine your conscience.
Trump spoke carefully and quietly, and people listened. So, the word of the day was “inflection”. Trump spoke with little inflection. He just exhibited calm and resolute determination. Trump did not put on a show. He did not attempt to emotionally manipulate us, and that is good. As citizens and voters, we need to think. That includes thinking about what our president said, not just what the news media said about him.
