WATCHING TRUMP’S SPEECH: THEY CHEERED. THEY GROANED. THEY ATE A CAKE.
JAMES E. “JEB” BASHAW, THE HOST OF THE PARTY AND THE CHIEF EXECUTIVE OF AN INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT AND FINANCIAL PLANNING COMPANY, LIKED WHAT HE HEARD FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP ON TUESDAY, CALLING THE SPEECH INSPIRATIONAL AND PATRIOTIC.
“He’s talking about opportunity for everyone, not just certain classes of people,” said Mr. Bashaw, 55.
Mr. Bashaw and his friends watched the speech in a place that Democrats view as a battleground — the district of Representative John Culberson, which has been comfortably held by Republicans since the late 1960s. In 2016, Hillary Clinton narrowly won this congressional district, and a crowded field of Democrats has lined up to try to flip the seat in November.
For those at this private party, there seemed no risk of flipped votes. Mr. Trump’s speech reinvigorated them.
Moments after Mr. Trump had finished, Mr. Bashaw called out: “Who wants cake?”
