Have our VSP pundits weighed in on the "optics" of the testimony yet? How are they fantasizing/projecting that it "played"?

And, scanning Twitter, I see that my sarcasm is woefully behind the times and it's already worse than I imagined. Cool cool cool.

Interesting that House Republicans pestering Mueller with ludicrous, easy debunked, fever-swamp conspiracy theories doesn't seem to strike anyone as an "optics problem." Why do you suppose that is?

Remember, just a week or two ago, when the president was credibly accused of rape? By the 23rd woman to accuse him of sexual impropriety? Seems like that shoulda been bad optics.
