It wouldn’t be FTN without a thorough newscucking to upend a full 7 minutes of hot takes on the SOTU showdown. With Trump’s late-night tweet stating his intent to wait on SOTU until after the shutdown, the usual 72 hour rule is now in effect. If the dynamic has not changed by the weekend, Trump’s cave will in fact be an unceremonious self-own for which he will undoubtedly pay a political price. McFeels and Halberstram also discuss Miller’s trojan horse troll, Shutdown as a proxy fight for 2020, Fox’s chyron crisis, NRO tits up, Shahira Knight out as Hill liaison (big white pill), Hogan’s Homos, and criminalizing white flight in the first half, followed by McFeels and Ethnarch on Venezuelan turmoil in the second. If it’s Thursday, it’s FTN!
