If this is TRUE that is FANTASTIC and hilarious. Pelosi did look like she was CONFUSED playing with those papers. If he had another speech and faked them out I LOVE IT. I LOVE when he shows them who's BOSS. He is NOT STUPID.

The video he keeps posting with music proves it. It was all a set up to expose them. It explains why he waited for the Pelosi delay. He wanted her face framed right behind his. Hes playing chess and these dumb fucks still think they are playing battleship.

You mean Checkers, right? Battleship requires a little more brain matter & strategy. Reminds me how a Tom Cat will stalk, taunt & play with its prey before the final kill.

Not stupid at all; he has said that one of his greatest strengths is that people underestimate him. Also, he is a certified Chess Grand Master. That is NOT stupid.

Very true and I've read his IQ is in the 150's, putting him in a very small class of people IQ wise!

I think the fact that he embraces his role as a clown, bumbling through and distracting the enemedia into reporting preposterous irrelevancies must be very helpful for his health, both mental and physical. He clearly is enjoying hinself in almost every public appearance, which is reassuring.

Yeah, Pelosi looked like she wanted Trump to grab her by the pussy while she clapped at the end of the speech. Whatever happened, that moment when she really clapped for Trump was monumental.

Now that I think about it, she did look like she was actually trying to find her place in his speech. It never occurred to me that he gave her a different copy to confuse her and derail their responses to the point that they would look un-American - which they are. And then catching them jumping to their feet applauding themselves? Well done Mr. President!

Hence the moniker “Maestro” a conductor a music maker. It was a sight to behold.

I totally caught that. He would say something and she would frantically start searching the papers. I have seen more than a half century of SOTUs. I have NEVER ONCE Noticed any Speaker even touch those papers, let alone keep looking and shuffling them. At first I thought she was purposely distracting, but then it seemed that she was distracting HERSELF more than anyone else.

Chess? Poker? Tiddlywinks? It don't matter, he is Gamer-in-Chief, without doubt.

I believe 100 percent that he sandbagged them , he is a master at making them look like complete asses. Love watching them destroy themselves and each other , quite a show actually.

Well, credit where credit is due: They're masters at making themselves look like complete asses! He just helped us look the right way whilst they did it!

Throughout the speech, I said several times, "What in the f*** is Pelosi doing with her on-again-off-again paper shuffling?" I viewed it as a purposeful, ignorant distraction. Then, last night I see the tweeted Trump video, Everybody Hurts, examining and analyzing the faces of the captured Dems. Now, I read this.

PRICELESS!

Brilliant! Yet easy, because they are so predictable! Being predictable opens you to many vulnerabilities! Sun Tzu probably said something along those lines!

Ahhhhhh! THank you AlphaAnon! So I get the Sun Tzu spirit then! So glad! You know what? I love the Chinese sayings / proverbs... ¨Who cares about the colour of the cat as long as he catches mice¨ ¨Sit by the side of the river and wait till you see floating along the corpse of you enemy¨ and on and on... THank you, my friend!

...About the speech you may be correct, however, I heard that instead of giving them a fake speech ahead of time he simply did not give them a speech.

I disagree about the guests. All knew who the guests would be ahead of time. No one knew what he’d say but everyone knew the guest list and it can be surmised by anyone what each guest represented and what voting demo they were there to appeal to.

It was a great use of the bully pulpit and an effective speech.

In the past some POTUS’s give the speech out ahead of time and others do not. Most do or leak portions to create media buzz but even when they do not the tv pundits analyze what they think will be said.

And the opp party always presents their own narrative that is contridictory to the POTUS. The opp party rebuttal is never that successful. That’s why no one already important does the rebuttal and only those trying to move up and become important do it. They have nothing to lose and need the exposure. Those already important only stand to lose in giving the opp rebuttal.

I just re-watched the speech! Pelosi's faces are great and even the other Dems know they got played. Outstanding!
