President Trump’s debate to senators and House members Tuesday night isn’t technically a State of a Union residence — it’s being billed as a debate to a corner event of Congress. That’s substantially appropriate, given it’s expected to be some-more about a state of Donald Trump than a state of a rest of us.

After all, a presidency is his existence show. We’re only a audience.

Trump’s debate is certain to be laced with his “accomplishments” and installed with a healthy sip of choice contribution to behind adult those accomplishments.


And, of course, there’s a doubt of how prolonged it will take until he attacks a bias of a “fake media.” My gamble is that it will come between “Mr. Speaker” and “Mr. Vice President.”

In other words, demeanour for a same warmed-over debate debate Trump has offering adult time and again given a election.

It will be engaging to see either he’ll pronounce about a subsequent section in his administration, if in fact there is a subsequent section over signing executive orders.

It also will be engaging to see what, if anything, he has to contend about health care, given a blowback that Republicans have been removing over their “repeal and retreat” proceed to Obamacare.

And we substantially shouldn’t sequence out surprises. If 0 else, Trump is a showman. His initial month-plus has resembled a deteriorate of “The Apprentice.” But hits can get seared fast though new element to keep a assembly entertained, and President Donald’s act is already removing some-more than a bit repetitive.

I’ll be tuning in to see either any Democrats lift a try along a lines of GOP Rep. Joe Wilson’s “You lie!” shout-out during an residence by President Barack Obama in 2009.

If we skip a speech, don’t worry. You can always locate a replay on “Saturday Night Live.”



The Democratic state Senate leadership’s preference to have GOP Sen. Janet Nguyen dragged from a chambers for her try to impugn a late Tom Hayden was one of a dumbest moves I’ve seen in a long, prolonged time.

The Democrats knew a day before Nguyen attempted to give her debate Thursday that she was going to go after Hayden for his antithesis to a Vietnam War, and that she would technically be out of order. So it’s not like they didn’t have time to figure out what to do about it, if anything.

The intelligent answer would have been to let her speak. That approach they competence have picked adult a crony on a Republican side rather than a reliable enemy, that is what they have now.

So, let’s review. What should have been a three-minute debate that captivated 0 media courtesy has incited into a inhabitant story. In a process, a Democrats managed to rouse an all-but-unknown Orange County Republican into a domicile name in California and beyond, cementing her re-election and substantially branch her into a claimant for statewide office.



I had a assembly with behaving San Francisco schools Superintendent Myong Leigh a other day to see what we could do to assistance a Willie L. Brown Middle School.

The man is unequivocally impressive. He comes with a clever credentials in propagandize finances.

I think that if he was asked by a propagandize board, Leigh would substantially reluctantly take a pursuit full time. But he’s got to be a slightest domestic man I’ve come opposite in a top echelons of city (or school) government.

We spent an hour articulate about this and that, and not once did he try to collect my mind for who he should curry preference with.



Movie time: “John Wick: Chapter 2.” There is no story, no behaving and no reason to go see this new installment, starring Keanu Reeves as a veteran assassin. It’s like they took all a outtakes from a initial film and strung them together. They ought to give everybody their income behind as they leave a theater.

“I Am Not Your Negro.” This documentary on a life of author James Baldwin is a best black story film I’ve seen in years. It’s centered around Baldwin and a lives and deaths of a 3 M’s of a polite rights movement, Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X.

Great exegesis by Samuel L. Jackson. By a end, we comprehend that nonetheless a movement takes place in a 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, a stories would be only as genuine today.



And now, a pouch greatfully for a annual Oscar picks.

Best movie: Should be “Hidden Figures,” though it will be “La La Land.”

Best actor: Should be Denzel Washington for “Fences,” though will be Casey Affleck for “Manchester by a Sea.”

Best actress: Emma Stone for “La La Land.”

Best ancillary actress: Viola Davis should and will win for “Fences.”

Best ancillary actor: Mahershala Ali will win for “Moonlight.”
