o. dear. I almost forgot.
Pelosi and Trump Agree on Something: She Should Be Speaker 7 Nov
"I think she deserves it," Mr. Trump said. "She's fought long and hard, she's a very capable person, and you know, you have other people shooting at her trying to take over the speakership."
Trump ain't stupid

And Trump and the Parisians agree on something: US wines are better. (Pity they don't tell us which wines they compared).

Wine (grape, vintage, country of origin) is 'swag bag' content, I should think.

The immediate question is, who delivers the party favors to whom.

Yeah I'll do a blind test any day. One stipulation : wines in the same price range.

I have NOTHING against American wines. But I've had extremely little exposure to them, because I'm cheap.

Trump jumps in to offer aid to Democrat Pelosi's speaker bid
With Trump "helping" Pelosi choose bills and votes in the House, why in hell would anyone need a Democratic Party candidate for POTUS 2020?

What is the matter with these people?

Does Pelosi need Trump's help?
Has she asked for it?
Is Trump trying to help Pelosi or to undermine her?

On second thought, I'm uncertain which migrant 'caravan' plummeting in US headline frequency (attributable to the 2018 US mid-term election) most interests you.

US press had plenty opinions about EU migrant CRISIS until Labor Day which was a pretty good foil for law 'n' order in the USA. Invasion by 'boat' had a certain prurient appeal to the impregnable Atlantic Ocean, and 'boat people' memories, not to mention the Immigration Act of  1965 are equally distant. Democratic Party functionaries are still around tho'.

I suspect, a bunch of refugees from conflict zones across Central America took umbrage and organized their 'media' game.

Now, the federales have installed razor wire. That's kind of Hungary, wouldn't you agree? Not new, not old, not attributable either to a US mid-term election.

U.S. Border Patrol agents stand on the U.S. side of the border, seen through the concertina wire where the border meets the Pacific Ocean, Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018, from Tijuana, Mexico. More buses of exhausted Central Americans in a caravan of asylum seekers have reached the Mexican border city of Tijuana, where they're coming to grips with the likelihood they may be on this side of the frontier for an extended stay.
