Avoiding the real issue.
One nation, one team?
“You can shame people to do things the right way.”
“There could be a war within the Republican Party over the wall.”

What could go wrong?
Smart politics by POTUS. For years the GOP has regarded Joe Manchin as the likeliest Democrat to cross the aisle …
“I felt like I was back in the neighborhood.”
“The White House will not be getting what it wants.”
“I think having bipartisan would be a big, big improvement.”
“As a guy who has done damage, I don’t want to do any more damage.”
“What if we worked to follow his example a little bit harder?”
“We don’t want nothing out of this debt limit.”
Embrace the suck.
In an almost amazingly polar opposite scenario from what’s going down with the Democratic candidate well-positioned to take red-turned-purple Virginia …
He doesn’t exactly say “no,” not in so many words, but nowhere between the “I have consistently sought compromise” and …
“I don’t know who he is.”
“I don’t think we’re that close to a deal.”
“I welcome the New Darrell.”
“To those concerned about illegal immigration, what we have now is de facto amnesty.” Plus: Rubio to join me on TEMS at 4 ET!
Back of the line.
Not messing around.
Can we get some certainty, please?
Bring on the yuletide metaphors.
Good luck with that.
None of that cliff-diving.
