Today in “Romper Room”, DC

Kevin Hassett, President Donald Trump’s chief economic adviser advised the 800,000 furloughed government workers to “get a loan”. How much of a loan [one paycheck, two, three] and from whom? Banks and credit unions have rules and criteria for making loans, and having your paycheck cancelled three times in two years doesn’t make loan officers happy.

After cancelling the aircraft for the Congressional delegation someone figured out that they had better cancel the trip to Davos for the World Economic Forum. The reasons given were the same that were stated in Speaker Pelosi’s letter postponing the State of the Union.

Over at CNN check out the video: Erin Burnett scorches Trump’s ‘unpresidential’ letter. Stay for the end where she has the scene of an Air Force C-32 [Boeing 757] taxiing at Andrews taking Melania to Mar-a-Lago. That’s probably the aircraft that would have been used for Speaker Pelosi’s trip. There are C-37 Gulfstreams available for small parties. Speaker Pelosi uses one to fly home to California [as the Speaker and 2nd in line, she is required to stay connected.]

Did you see Rachel Maddow’s show about it? I think she has it right. At least partially anyway. She call’s it “One Neat trick”.

The financial problems experienced are going to be a red flag on security reviews, hell, they are going to be a problem for the people doing the reviewing. He is doing this to protect himself. If he was interested in border security he wouldn’t be ending the paychecks of everyone employed to enforce border security.
