Agree 100%. I watched this entire performance and wonder how someone this strategically stupid has two pennies to rub together, much less be a billionaire. I knew after he sent Pelosi that letter saying he was planning on giving the SOTU and she said "No you're not" and he said, "Okay, I'll do it later" that he was toast.
I think he could have had a coup on the PR side if he'd just canceled all his future televised SOTU addresses and just gone with the letter to congress (as it used to be) and a 10 minute YouTube video online for the American people.
