On Thursday's "Tucker Carlson Tonight" I had the perfect spot in the lineup - between Dennis Rodman talking about China and President Trump taking the stage in Dallas. As the excitement mounted, Tucker and I pondered a world in which America's first black president endorses Canada's first blackface prime minister - but not his own vice-president.

Later I returned briefly to preview the Trump rally as Adam Schiff's secret closed-doors pseudo-impeachment non-show trial appears to be running into obvious difficulties in cementing its grip on the public imagination:
STEYN: I think things have changed since a week ago and he [Trump] is looking pretty safe. The Adam Schiff backdoor behind-the-scenes impeachment isn't going anywhere - and talk up the economy, make or draw a contrast between him and Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders-level craziness.
CARLSON: That is such a good point. I hope he follows your advice.

Incidentally, as this wretched Canadian election campaign draws to a close, this delightful moment in which two little black sisters ask the Prime Minstrel about blacking up is one of its few great artifacts. He gives them the usual flimflam ...and they're not buying it. I would love to see anything half so skeptical as these girls' expressions on the adoring visages of Rosie Barton and Adrienne Arsenault.
