In a development that — at least right now — seems truly bizarre, the White House announced at roughly 9:45 p.m. that President Obama would be giving a nationally televised speech at 10:30 — and they didn’t say what it would be about.
UPDATE: It’s on National Security.
As Donald Trump would say, what the (bleep)?
Needless to say, the Twittersphere is going nuts over this sudden turn of events — many noting the rich irony that Obama’s speech would pre-empt the last half hour of Trump’s NBC show. “The Celebrity Apprentice.” Of course, the jokes will die down quickly if and when the subject matter turns serious. Libya, perhaps?
