  Chip, You open your segment on the brief meeting between Trump and Pelosi with "I don't understand?" Well it is very clear to those of us in the business world. If you were going to present your business plan to the bank board and before meeting you publicly trashed them calling them cheats, colluders and worse. Then you step into the meeting with the attitude that they will politely listen to your proposal, you have it all wrong. So Chip, if you still don't understand, why don't you leave "Glitter Town" and join us business men in the REAL world. Four generation cattleman Joe Frasier
