Something to consider when we take control

of the house in January. Beginning immediately - each and every time that any Democrat has a plan, a proposal, an important announcement, or any other political issue or comment, we should call the media in to inform them of such - that, along with a Q & A session --- without informing Trump. Let's beat him at his own game by sucking some of the air out of the orange one.

That is what we need to be most concerned about.

Donald is great at one thing: Messaging/Driving the Narrative.

If we don't get a handle on that he will turn the shutdown into a Democratic Shutdown after Jan 3rd. He will turn the coming GOP/Trump Recession into a recession caused by the new, Democratic House.

I am 100% correct on this matter. It is the area in which we always lose.

replaying the moneyquotes from the film of the December 11th meeting with Pelosi and Schumer in which Trump publicly stated HE takes responsibility for the government shutdown. It would also be useful during commercial breaks in the upcoming State of the Union Address.
