Rock ’em sock ’em Canadian hockey icon Don Cherry recently got the axe from Hockey Night In Canada. Cherry’s an old time hockey guy. Eddie Shore. He’s also a flamboyant Canada first kind of guy. Sound familiar?

Justin Trudeau is Cherry’s opposite. An international multiculturalist. Cherry chose Veterans Day – Rememberance Day in Canada – to criticize newer arrived urban Canadians for not sporting poppy pins to honor Canada’s war dead. He says he regrets referring to them as “you people.”

Trudeau would never say “you people,” though he might say “my people.” Playing against type though, photos of him dressed in black face surfaced during the last election. He won anyway.

Maybe there’s a future for Don Cherry here in the states.

Wall Fall

Pelosi’s a pro at politics. Trump, not so much. He ended the government shutdown for 3 weeks and got nothing in return but a promise to negotiate a wall Democrats don’t want and have no incentive to build. President Trump offered to take the blame for the shutdown and Nancy was glad to give it to him. Hard. His base is bummed.

“[Speaker Nancy] Pelosi ordered everything off the menu and left Trump hanging with the bill,” one Trump ally texted.

Trump offered relief for young immigrant “Dreamers” in exchange for for his wall. It was an appeal to the Democrat’s base but Pelosi wouldn’t bite. She wants Trump stuffed and mounted, if not devoured.

Meanwhile, Alexandria Ocasio Cortez has bigger fish to fry. She says climate change will kill us all in 12 years, so why are you worried about money.

Establishment Democrats seem more worried about her.

Trump’s Speech

President Trump’s speech from the oval office was short and sweet. He demanded five and a half billion for a border wall, or barrier, or something sticking out of the ground, but didn’t declare a national emergency.

Base Fear

Marc Theissen thought it was great. Trump reached out to Americans beyond his base.

But Chuck and Nancy thought otherwise. Nancy says the wall is immoral. Chuck said Trump used the oval office to manufacture a crisis. And they both looked stiff and uncomfortable.

Could be they were looking to reach beyond their base too.
