From an editorial from Monica Hesse in the Washington Post:
“You weren’t supposed to do that,” he said, chiding them for unexpectedly cheering at a moment he hadn’t anticipated.
No, they weren’t. The attention was to have been on him. This was to have been an uninterrupted performance.
But instead, Nancy Pelosi clapped for the president, and a group of congresswomen sat for the president, and they both displayed the art of stealing someone’s thunder without saying anything at all.
This is the look of a women who knows something that we are all going to find out very soon. This just might be the image that defines the Trump presidency.
