Donald Trump hyped up that he had a BIG ANNOUNCEMENT during a speech today at 4:00pm. Well, as expected, the speech was 11 minutes of lies, rants and demands for $5.7B in border wall money. If you look at the chyron on the screengrab, Nancy Pelosi had already responded before the vanity speech of hate was done.

Trump offered a whole bunch of garbage. First, he offered 3 years of DACA extensions, when SCOTUS just yesterday decided not to act, thereby extending it another full yea. Then he ranted about drug cartels, murders, angel moms, drugs (ironically, since he was sniffing like a man who had just snorted 5 lines of adderall before walking out to the podium). Oh, and then he demanded his border wall money.

The one thing he didn't mention? The shutdown.

Twitter had thoughts:

Recycled hate speech probably written by Stephen Goebbels Miller, designed to stoke fear and increase hatred by his base towards anyone not Christian White. And the speech isn't even trending on twitter as I write this, which is a sign that Hair Fuhrer is losing his touch.

Can you help us out?
