BREAKING!!! EPIC DOWNTOWN TRAFFIC CRACKDOWN UNDERWAY AS PREZ TRUMP TALKS SAFE NEIGHBORHOODS AT POLICE CONFERENCE IN VIOLENT KANSAS CITY!!!
Today the leader of the free world dominates our local discourse and threatens to bring traffic near the loop to a virtual halt.
More important than any of the partisan slap fighting . . .
THE KANSAS CITY PREZ TRUMP TRAFFIC CRACKDOWN IS UNDERWAY AND POLICE AREN'T KIDDING AROUND WHEN IT COMES TO TICKETS & TOWING!!!
That's the practical side of it but the visit of the Prez isn't just a logistical affair despite the desperate morning show effort to keep their anchors likeable and away from real discussions . . .
Critics of the Prez cite Kansas City's continued violence and homicide problems despite the 'Make America Safe Again' promise.
For better or worse the "Make America Safe Again" pledge was kind of like an addendum to the overall MAGA talk and mostly focuses on problems at the border. While, in fairness, Chicago crime has been reduced even if the progress in curbing KCMO violence is minimal.
Local partisan hacks are pointing to the Mueller investigation hounding the Prez as their main beef with the Commander-In-Chief today.
