<Trump has been successful at ripping the facade off the pretenders, showing them for what they really are: pretentious, intolerant, maniacal hypocrites.>

While the situations are serious, I have to admit to having some really good belly laughs over how deeply and regularly Trump gets into the left's heads.

They came out so loudly and filled with venom over just the IDEA of illegals being sent to sanctuary cities or states. That provided the clearest example yet of their hypocrisy on the immigration issue. They do not want these people in their cities and towns. Yet they have repeatedly said that all were welcome. They long claimed that it was a manufactured issue. During Obama's time they were fine with him sending lots of illegals to non sanctuary places to strain the resources and budgets of many small towns and counties.

Pelosi has major problems on her team. The attention has all been going to the most extreme people in her party. They have often said and proposed things that most of America does agree with. It is not a matter of 4-5 people.

Trump has won the psychological war. The irony here is that if they had acted even modestly in good faith, they probably could have gotten a lot of things done for average Americans. Those are the very people who will ultimately decide the next election. By refusing to agree on anything that gives ANY credit to Trump, they have locked themselves into a corner that will bring them some very bad outcomes. It couldn't happen to a more deserving group of people.
