    President Donald Trump argues about border security with Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer (far right) and House minority leader Nancy Pelosi as Vice President Mike Pence sits nearby.

    Donald Trump’s utterly bizarre performance during his “meeting” with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer Tuesday may have had an unintended consequence for the president: To wit, he made Pelosi look like the proverbial grown-up in the room. I have not been Pelosi’s biggest fan in recent times, but she can definitely fight above her weight class. As for Vice President Pence, he could have been portrayed with equal vigor by a mannequin.
