Something for nothing
“I bet he’s got something up his sleeve.”

“He’s not going to give in.”
“Democrats can say, ‘See? He’s not building a wall anymore.'”
Lack of art of the deal
“Most of us, speaking for myself, consider the wall immoral, ineffective and expensive.”
Does the Dark Night Of The Arnoldization of Trump cometh?
“There’s no incentive.”
“PASSAGE WILL SHOW THAT WE WANT STRONG BORDERS & SECURITY…”
“Game over. It takes the wind out of the sails.”
“Marco Rubio’s still supported by the NRA.”

“Now Ryan is fully exposed to the nation.”
“Chuck and Nancy would like to see something happen, and so do I.”

As I have said, don’t even think about …
Bye bye Blaine?
“Others resisted and were subdued by guardsmen.”
