Trump's Texas Adventure...he looked overweight, frumpy, exhausted, disinterested and bored.

It was the equivalent of watching some obscure band from the 70s play their hit at the state fair. He got the words right (part of the time), but looked like he wanted to be somewhere else. Maybe Mar-a-Lago, but definitely not on the Texas / Mexico border.

Even his sprightly MAGA hat couldn't hide what was underneath...a 72 year old lifelong con man whose veneer has been stripped to reveal the perpetual failure hiding underneath.

A bearded Ted Cruz only further revealed that YES, America must protect itself...from people like Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.

The day was filled with an eager-to-sing Michael Cohen, revelations that Trump plans to plunder disaster relief funds to fulfill his campaign promise to the MAGAts, and inspirational photos of a beautiful, architecturally designed steel slat wall that had been breached by a trip to Home Depot. Oh, and Jim Acosta broadcasting from a tranquil RV park perched on the Rio Grande, where there were no drugged, raping Mexican caravans to be seen. Nothing but a delightful shuffleboard court.

Meanwhile, Mitch McConnell trembled in the darkness, and Lindsey Graham called for the declaration of a national emergency, adding "I hope it works."

Ain't that America, for you and me? No, it's not.

2. Thank you for your description

I like how you really cut through all the bullshit and told us what was really going on here. Also, thank you for the picture. Trump looks like they just rescued him from a lunch of institutional food at the senior center, and Ted Cruz looks like his next stop is an audition for title character in a bad Grizzly Adams reboot.

Much worse than usual. Look at those trousers! Like a kid who hasn't grown into his pants yet. He's the president of the United States and he can't even find a pair of pants that fit? Or a tailor who could hem them?

I think he may have gained so much weight that he had go with a larger size, but they were too long. Overall, he looks like a chubby toddler in ill fitting clothes.

12. Today just felt really different

When he goes to his rallies, he's all swagger and bluster as he soaks in the adoration.

Ever since that TV address, the swagger's gone, and even though he was asked a direct question about Cohen and shrugged it off, you know the news has got to be eating him alive.

This might be the part of Watergate 2019 where he simply slips into paranoia and never comes out.

15. He looked overweight, frumpy, exhausted, disinterested and bored.

In other words, he looked as he always does because somewhere after the first month in office, he realized the job was not King of the World but President of the United States.

He looks like what he is: a tiresome, ignorant, overweight oaf who would do the country a world go good by . . .

Resigning!

Trump: Give me taxpayer money to pay for it.
Democrats: No. Hey, wasn't Mexico--
Trump: I want a wall!
Democrats: What do we get?
Trump: Eff you, that's what!
Democrats: Then no.
Trump: I WANNA WALL!! GIMME A WALL!!!
Democrats: (*sigh*) How about we give you the wall in exchange for legalizing DACA recipients?
Trump: NO!
Democrats: Then no deal.
Trump: Then I'll shut down the government and blame myself for it!
Democrats: Weird. And ill-advised. But you do you, I guess.
Trump: THE SHUTDOWN IS ALL YOUR FAULT!!!

25. It may be just this photo

But generally when the president shows up, the folks he's visiting are crowding in, wanting to be in the picture with the president. Even bad presidents have their fans.

In this photo, the only persons anywhere near Trump are Sen. Cruz and the old fellow (I should know who it is, but I don't) behind him. the old fellow has all the joyful levity of the priest walking the condemned down death row to the gas chamber.
