When Donald Trump stepped to the dais at the United Nations General Assembly yesterday, he had a speech full of sharp lines: swipes at socialism, assertions of nationalism versus globalism, harsh words for Iran. Though Trump doesnt enjoy delivering scripted remarks, he sounded listless, tired, and bored even by his own standards, struggling through the speech.
The president had a good reason to be distracted. The same morning, he had spoken on the phone with Speaker Nancy Pelosi, trying to stem a growing tide of Democratic demands for his impeachment. According to NBCs Heidi Przybyla, Trump asked Pelosi whether there was some way they could make a deal. Pelosi said the White House had to release the whistle-blower complaint to Congress, as required by statute. Tell your people to obey the law, she said.
After weeks of defiance, Trump seemed to change course. Yesterday afternoon, he announced that the White House would release a transcript of his July call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Later in the day, Politicos Nancy Cook reported that the White House would release the whistle-blower complaint to Congress.
It was not enough to satisfy Pelosi. At 5 p.m. yesterday, she stepped before microphones in Washington and announced an official impeachment inquiry, with her support, into the president. Its still unclear what this means materially, but it rattled Trump. At home in Trump Tower, he was stunned, believing that hed managed to put Pelosi off in their morning conversation, according to CNN.
Chaos is a constant in the Trump administration, but this week there are signs of a far rarer impulse: panic. The indications come in Trumps demeanor, including the listless speech; a combative, brief press availability with Zelensky at the UN this morning; and a rambling, stream-of-semi-consciousness press availability this afternoon.

Its Yhe Atlantic
He doesnt look panicked to me..maybe the commies are panicking because they know we know about their corruption
They’re “playing telephone” using that NBC News report to generate more news stories based on another news story, not on any actual facts.
Did this Graham mutt puke on his keyboard and is now trying to push his puke as rational thought? Just asking.
Yeah, to the left’s grave. This is end stage leftism.
Trump would be the last one to panic. It’s the Dem’s and the MSM-LSD bunch that are.
LOL! That couldn't be further from the truth.
We know who’s really panicking and it’s certainly not the president.
More Fake News
They wish...I think he is RELISHING the fight.
Is this Graham
