President Pinocchio addresses Congress

Can Americans choose Donald Trump's speechwriter as president?

So refreshing to see Donald Trump 2.0 address the House and Senate ("Trump in first speech to Congress: 'Time to join forces' to fix our problems," Feb. 28). But wait, upon further view, as they say in the National Football League replay world, it was no more than a Pinocchio scam with President Trump reading the words of polished writers, White House Geppettos.

In the words of the right's much-adored Sarah Palin, it was "lipstick on a pig." Watch it, Mr. President, or your nose will grow to the self-described size of your hands!
