Hence the saying, “Any good sermon worth giving once, can be given twice.”
Actually, Dump is smart like a fox. It’s an old Repub ploy: condemn the other guy in order to cover up your own sins. Remember, Newt G ran the democratic house speaker out by decrying poor ethics which he later did himself even more so. One-up-man-ship is Dump’s major MO.
Yeah, upstage your master. You’re sure to get more food now.

A recent query was made to 20 plus corporate heads as to whether they would hire more with the reduced corporate tax. Only about 3 raised their hands.

Mike isn’t very bright. Brad knows the guys aren’t going to say nice things about him, so he can assume what they say is an insult, which it is. Bran would really be thrown for a loop if Mike said nice things about him, but that requires intelligence and Mike doesn’t seem to have it.
