The Daily Combover - February 13, 2017

Yesterday I speculated about Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau's State visit to the White House. Let's see how that went:
Prime Minister Trudeau better watch out. He looks a lot like Ivanka in this picture and you know Trump's a pussy-grab away from making his dreams come true.
Let's see how the press conference went:
Q    Good afternoon, Mr. President and Mr. Prime Minister.  And, Mr. Prime Minister, could you answer in English and French for us, please? 
A little bit of a follow-on on my American colleague’s question.  President Trump, you seem to suggest that Syrian refugees are a Trojan horse for potential terrorism, while the Prime Minister hugs refugees and welcomes them with open arms.  So I’d like to know, are you confident the northern border is secure?

PRESIDENT TRUMP:  You can never be totally confident.  But through the incredible efforts -- already I see it happening -- of formerly General Kelly, now Secretary Kelly, we have really done a great job.  We're actually taking people that are criminals -- very, very hardened criminals in some cases, with a tremendous track record of abuse and problems -- and we're getting them out.  And that's what I said I would do.  I’m just doing what I said I would do when we won by a very, very large Electoral College vote. 
And I knew that was going to happen.  I knew this is what people were wanting.  And that wasn’t the only reason, that wasn’t my only thing that we did so well on.  But that was something was very important.  And I said we will get the criminals out, the drug lords, the gang members.  We're getting them out.
General Kelly, who is sitting right here, is doing a fantastic job.  And I said at the beginning we are going to get the bad ones -- the really bad ones, we're getting them out.  And that's exactly what we're doing.
I think that in the end everyone is going to be extremely happy.  And I will tell you right now, a lot of people are very, very happy right now.

PRIME MINISTER TRUDEAU:  Canada has always understood that keeping Canadians safe is one of the fundamental responsibilities of any government.  And that's certainly something that we're very much focused on.  
At the same time, we continue to pursue our policies of openness towards immigration, refugees, without compromising security.  And part of the reason we have been successful in doing that over the past year -- welcoming close to 40,000 Syrian refugees -- is because we have been coordinating with our allies, the United States and around the world, to demonstrate that security comes very seriously to us.  And that's something that we continue to deal with.
(As interpreted from French.)  It is clear that if you want to have a healthy and secure society or safe society, you have to make sure that you maintain -- that you focus on security.  And we have welcomed refugees from Syria.  We have been very successful, but we have always taken our responsibility toward security very seriously.  And our allies, including the United States, understand this focus very well.  And they have done so since the very beginning.
Trump really has only one talking point. He won, she lost. He's the greatest so start licking his boots.

Let's see what PM Trudeau thought of that exchange.

Doesn't look like it went that well to me... But hey, at least the combover has a nice Rightward flip today!

In other news, we just got Mnuchined. I know it's a little off topic, but is anyone not seriously tired of fake-dem Manchin and his corrupt daughter by this point? I know we're trying to hit 51, but aside from needing his vote for Majority Leader in 2018, the dems better not treat him the way they treated Joe Lieberman as a favored son. It's enough that they let the Republicans off the hook for blunder after blunder. They can't keep giving centrists posh roles.

It's difficult to stand up to the Fontange Fuhrer when your elected officials are bending over a barrel for him.

Catch you on the flip side.
