Seriously, Schumer & Pelosi missed a Yuge opportunity to make Trump look like the fool on TV.

A national stage and the two came across as a pair of misshapen make-up wearing wooden nickels selling cheap cigars .

And what was with them squished behind a podium? Who thought this was a great photo op? Don't they have overseers, TV people who can choreograph an event like this?

Reminds me of Nixon sweating on TV.

Trump before them came across like a bellicose cardboard cutout snorting cocaine off his mothers kitchen table -

and then those two enhancing their already old guard status giving no one any reason to listen to them unless forced to.

I actually agree. I think both sides missed an opportunity.

Trump should have had photos of victims. He should have had charts, etc. It was a chance to make your argument in front of the jury, and I feel like both sides whiffed. I thought it was going to be an interesting night, but I could barely pay attention to either side. I'm still not sure what either side said. Maybe we will be getting a list of lies soon, though. I figured that would have been posted by now.

Trump was playing a losing hand where nothing was going to help him.

Only those who agree with is border wall/gov't shutdown - less then 30% of nation - would like what he was going to say -

the only thing he could have hoped for was a Schumer/Pelosi failure to keep the score even. And they obliged.

No one was swayed

The nation still believes what it believed before Trump's photo op.
