After thinking it over for a while, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi finally formulated a response to President Trump’s State of the Union Address beyond looking like she had a Skittle stuck in her molar. She tweeted:

“Trump's State of the Union performance last night was just that — a performance completely devoid of the serious policy ideas that lead to real bipartisan efforts.”

Funny, I could have sworn I heard Trump float a number of serious bipartisan policy ideas, from a DACA compromise bill to expanded family leave to a major new infrastructure drive. Maybe Nancy was sucking too loudly on her teeth and didn’t hear him.

Amtrak tragedy

By Mike Huckabee

Yesterday, an Amtrak train carrying a number of Republican Congress members, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, to a retreat in West Virginia struck a truck that had stalled on the tracks. The train passengers are all right, but two people were injured and one was killed on the truck. Our prayers and sympathies are with the victims and their families.

Sadly, the tragic wreck was seen by some people as a fitting excuse to launch tasteless political attacks. This is what happens when you let partisan politics become more important than basic human decency. Ordinarily, I might say something about how social media outlets like Twitter contribute to this sort of disgusting flippancy about others’ pain and suffering. But I don’t know whether it’s actually fostering this kind of conscience rot or simply helping to expose it.


#1 Narcissist

By Mike Huckabee

Now that a couple of days have passed, analysts have poured over President Trump’s State of the Union Address and are noticing some interesting things. For instance: Trump, who is constantly accused of being a narcissist, used the word “I” 29 times and “me” once in an 80-minute speech. Instead, he said “we” or “us” much more often. By contrast, in Obama’s first SOTU, he said “I” 88 times and “me” 10 times. He even managed to say “I” four times in one sentence.

On the plus side, I’m sure Mr. Obama will be pleased to learn that he is still the #1 narcissist ever to be President.


Memo objections

By Mike Huckabee

The FBI, DOJ and Democratic objections to releasing House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes’ memo on FBI abuse of the FISA court system to spy on the Trump campaign have ranged from “it’s filled with false information” to “releasing it will endanger national security” (and how would releasing false information do that?) The latest objection is that they have “grave concerns about material omissions” in it.

That claim particularly galled Nunes, who released a statement yesterday pointing out that the FBI is intimately familiar with omitting things, since it’s stonewalled requests for information from Congress and courts for over a year. So if they think something was omitted, they are welcome to finally make those omissions public.

Gowdy says no

By Mike Huckabee

Many Republicans were upset at the news that South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy has decided not to run for reelection this year. As chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Gowdy has been a much-needed pitbull in Congress, using his previous experience as a prosecutor to ferret out the truth when witnesses were doing everything in their power to conceal it. But he’s understandably had his fill of DC politics and wants to go back into the justice system and get out of the injustice system.

This might cheer up disappointed Republicans: at the link, a scenario for how Gowdy might one day end up on the Supreme Court.



19 million people

By Mike Huckabee

As President Trump likes to point out, we have a serious problem with drugs coming over the Mexican border, but this bust is particularly terrifying. Police in Ensenada, Mexico, pulled over a van headed toward the US border and found it was carrying 100 pounds of fentanyl. That drug is so potent that just a few milligrams can kill a person. One hundred pounds is enough to kill over 19 million people, the equivalent of the entire population of Florida.

Still think we should signal how caring we are to the world by having wide open borders?
