Before yesterday's big speech, the consensus of policy experts on Donald Trump's foreign policy was one of confusion.

Outside of Trump supporters and right wingers like John Bolton, nothing changed for foreign correspondents and serious pundits after yesterday's yuuuge Donald Trump speech at the Mayflower Hotel.

We posted CNN's Nick Paton Walsh's response immediately afterwards -- he was not kind to Trump's vision at all, calling it oversimplification, 'Staggering And Confusing'

Now cut to Bloomberg's Mark Halperin's twitter feed and you might wonder if he was watching something entirely different.

He would have you believe that Donald Trump is the second greatest politician of our time. No, really:

Another "Great News for John McCain" moment for the beltway's top Republican butt-kisser.

Can you help us out?
