The President of the United States makes like a Senator and filibusters, claiming that he can act like a Senator because he is the President . . . or something. At last count, Democrats have twice the amount of speaking time than do Republicans. To the extent that Republicans do talk, they are automatically told that they are not being serious, and that they are just using “props.” Never mind that the entire summit is a prop, because Democrats just want to go ahead with their own plan after the summit comes to an end, making the entire event a Potemkin exercise.
Yeah, this was a great idea. Wonder why people didn’t agree to do it earlier.
