68. I can imagine him giving up, because I used to work with a malignant narcissist.

They can be difficult to predict, but one thing is constant - it's all about maintaining their image in their own mind. It doesn't matter what they say they want, or what makes sense, or what they threaten to do. It doesn't even matter what his base wants. I think Pelosi has his number. If she comes up with a compromise that he thinks makes him look better than getting a wall, then he will go for it and claim it is his idea.

In fact, he's already told her what he'll settle for. Because he went from a 2,000 mile concrete wall, to a steel slat barrier to a 200 mile barrier. Which could be a fence, just like what we have now. It can have 50 feet of wall somewhere. No matter, he'll take it and declare victory. The rest of the money can go to real border security and hiring more immigration judges.

And I do think Pelosi has his number because she said she he would take a bead curtain or a line of flower pots. She's exactly right. So I think she's got this.
