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.
Last night, President Trump gave his first State of the Union Address.

At least, that’s the impression I get from their texting.
The New York Times is still trumpeting a story about President Trump ALMOST firing Robert Mueller. That’s right –-- he almost fired him! He thought about it. He thought about it some more. He talked about it. He wanted to. He may have come tantalizingly close. But he didn’t do it. (And he denies even taking it that far.)
