    the natives are getting restless. Chuck Todd at NBC:

    Democrats still haven't figured out how to fight Trump
    First Read is your briefing from "Meet the Press" and the NBC Political Unit on the day's most important political stories and why they matter.

    May 22, 2019, 8:50 AM EDT
    By Chuck Todd, Mark Murray and Carrie Dann

    WASHINGTON — As House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tries to prevent her Democratic colleagues from rushing to impeachment proceedings, it’s worth asking again:

    Five months into their majority, what do House Democrats have to show for it?

    Not an infrastructure deal (the subject of today’s meeting with President Trump, which is unlikely to go anywhere, especially after Trump told Pelosi and Chuck Schumer that Congress should pass his U.S.-Mexico-Canada trade deal first).

    Not any progress on health care, which was Democrats’ No. 1 priority in last year’s elections.

    Not HR-1 — the campaign-finance and ethics bill that they passed in March, but which isn’t going anywhere in the Senate.

    And the summer and fall is expected to be spent dealing with thorny issues like budget caps and raising the debt limit.

    So Pelosi and House Democrats have to ask themselves: What does success look like heading in 2020 – beyond the presidential race, which is shaping up to be a 50-50 proposition?

    And what’s the plan for 2019?

    Is it triumphing over Trump in the courts?

    Is it finding damaging information that could hurt Trump next year – a la how House Republicans Benghazi-ed Hillary Clinton in 2015?

    Because one reason why House Democrats are growing restless – and increasingly talking about impeachment — is that they have little to show for their majority.

    At least right now.​

    ^^^^ 4 months into the new House?

    I would say let Trump being Trump is the Democrats plan. Let Trump create a constitutional crisis between Congress and the Executive Branch. Let Trump continue to hide his records. Let Trump does the art of the deal and let the public decide how that looks.

    As long as McConnell controls the senate, the Democrats can’t propose anything that will be taken seriously unless another emergency comes up.

    trump felt so embarrassed by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi that he knowingly distributed a doctored video.

    The stable genius that doesn't do cover-ups and is the most transparent in history... won't let his former counsel (mcgahn) testify, and won't let Mueller testify...

    realizing that he had been schooled, the snow-flake-in-chief back-pedals,

    , and
    in the process, corroborates that he used a fake video concocted by his state media outlet
