As many may reference, when CTH notes an opposition member with exceptional agitprop skills -regardless of opinion toward them as an opponent- CTH gives them credit. This is very well played. Ms. Sinema has intelligent political skills.
It is a skill few have mastered: Take every aspersion cast against you; embrace them with humor; amplify them in your own way; and then turn the outcome to your advantage. President Donald Trump also has this political skillset.
