Trump Fails with Oval Office Wall Address

     Last night on “The Booth” we discussed the ongoing government shutdown and President Trump’s border wall demands.  Our discussion included predictions for his Oval Office address shortly following our show.  Unfortunately, we were right, and Trump utterly failed to make his case.  Historically and with little exception Presidents have requested time from the networks and news media outlets to address the nation from the Oval Office in order to address a bona fide crisis or critical issue of national importance.  They get the air time and the American people tune in because they trust their leaders when they say ...

Asia or Bust

I waited after President Trump returned from Asia before writing this piece to try and see what came from the trip.  I wanted the trip to be successful.  Whenever the President, regardless of party, regardless of how we voted, regardless of how we view his performance, travels abroad we need him to be successful.  Domestic politics goes aside during these trips because so much is at stake and it is about our country as a whole:  National security, nuclear weapons, fair trade, the environment, etc.  I watched coverage of the trip and hoped there was real substance beneath all the ...
