Deep State fangs bared

What a shitshow.

President Donald Trump threatened to shut down the government during a heated argument with Democratic congressional leaders in the Oval Office on Tuesday in a remarkable display of partisan bickering just 10 days before a partial shutdown is set to take effect.

“I am proud to shut down the government for border security,” Trump said bluntly. “I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it. The last time you shut it down, it didn’t work. I will take the mantle of shutting down. And I’m going to shut it down for border security.”

“The fact is, you do not have the votes in the House,” Pelosi said, to which Trump insisted: “Nancy, I do.”

Schumer then confronted Trump directly over his exaggerations and mistruths about the border wall.

“We have a lot of disagreements here. The Washington Post today gave you a whole lot of Pinocchios because they say you constantly misstate how much of the wall is built,” a defiant Schumer said. “You have called 20 times to shut down the government. You say, ‘I want to shut down the government.’ We don’t. We want to come to an agreement.”

At one point, Trump jabbed at Pelosi, saying, “Nancy’s in a situation where it’s not easy for her to talk right now.”

Pelosi fired back immediately, telling the president, “Please don’t characterize the strength that I bring to this meeting as leader of the House Democrats who just won a big victory.”

Nah, they’re not emboldened or anything. This is still a conservative-majority nation, and we’re still winning. Just keep telling yourself that, and maybe the horse will learn to sing.

The partisan jabbing, which came during a photo opportunity before Trump was set to negotiate with Pelosi and Schumer behind closed doors, represented a preview of what to expect with a divided government next year, when Democrats officially take control of the House of Representatives.

Lamentably, incredibly, depressingly, it most certainly is—the opening salvo in what’s going to be a long and dismal war. Kudos to Trump for fighting on anyway, from the deep end of a real shitpile dumped on him by the fickle, witless, and liberal (BIRM) American voter.

  1. Trump owned their sorry asses in this round. He should tell that shriveled up ole douchebag that she will get absolutely nothing from him in the next two years. As for Chuckie, he reminded me of a yiddish vampire sitting on the couch.

  2. What needs to be said is how much a ‘.gov shutdown’ is really a bunch of BS. The only things that get ‘shut down’ are things like the National Parks. I think Trump, if he can, should make it really hurt. Shut it down. No one comes to work and NO ONE GETS PAID including CONgress. No back pay either when the shut down ends.
