Showy events like yesterday’s White House tax cut speeches make Trump’s re-election look assured.
But wheeling out African American politicians like Tim Scott to talk about how the tax cut is for ‘distressed communities’ and single mothers while Ben Carson is asked to pray for tax cuts in Cabinet Meetings could seriously backfire.
In an unusual moment, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson led members of the Trump cabinet in prayer during a meeting on Tuesday, thanking God "for a President and for cabinet members who are courageous, who are willing to face the winds of controversy in order to provide a better future for those who come behind us."
How long will America fall for Pity the Billionaire politics?
Breitbart’s Billionaire Bannon recently spoke to an AstroTurf White-Funded Black Business Group even while campaigning for Roy Moore.

The Breitbart View
There was a lot of good news in Trump's National Security Strategy -- the document which finally told the truth about climate change.
An elder statesman in the world of UK Alt-Right politics — check out his Breitbart podcast— it’s designed for the corruptibly anti-corrupt.
I’ve listened to it a few times. The honesty is comforting. Can’t say we always agree. But it’s unfair on its own terms.
The contradictions don’t hide – they’re part of the fun.
I read somewhere that Delingpole smoked weed with David Cameron at Oxford. He must hate him now. Far too liberal for Delingpole.
More on Cameron (and HSBC) soon.
Corrupt Tories David Cameron & George Osborne were flown to Davos in a private jet financed by money launders HSBC & gaffe-prone fiddler Michael Spencer
As for Delingpole – if he dies in battle, they should still let him into heaven.
Having moved around in some ‘progressive’ circles over the years, I’ve exposed myself to more than my fair share of groupthink, infiltration, astro-turfing and controlled opposition.

Why end slavery when it is so profitable for some?
I feel there are arguments that would be made along these lines that parallel Trump’s $1.5 trillion tax repeal argument. They will mainly be found in the Wall Street Journal.
