The President’s continual effort to get Democrats in the House and Senate to give in and authorize taxpayer money to help him come thru with his political promise to build a border wall between America and Mexico is going nowhere …..
Holding an increasing number of federal employee’s paychecks and other agencies service has become subservient to Trump pleasing rightwingnut media talking heads that he cowtown to ….
It’s been 21 days….
A record Government Shutdown length and counting for something Trump said blame him….
The thing that has confounded a lot of people is how the majority Republican l;awmakers seem to have lost their ‘balls’ in sticking bay a NYC Real Estate guy that is a serial liar, inept and is trying to govern by his gut and conservative media input…
Trump ran against his party to get his day job….
Now that he has it and seems lost?
His party is still standing besides him…
I guess Trump was right…..
TheyIS something Wrong with them
Susan Glasser: “For most of the last two years, the departure of Mattis from the Trump Administration under such circumstances was seen, even by many Republicans, as the sort of move that would prompt a destabilizing backlash, an outcome that would inevitably have severe political consequences for the President. Last spring, after Trump fired his first Secretary of State and second national-security adviser, the retired general Barry McCaffrey told MSNBC that the exit of the respected Secretary of Defense would, as the host Chuck Todd put it, ‘bring down the Trump Administration.’”
Said McCaffrey: “If you try and push out Mattis… I think the Republican leadership would finally say, ‘Whoa, now we’re in trouble.’ I don’t think it’s going to happen. If it does, we’re in trouble.”
“Well, on December 20th, it happened. But the Republican leadership has not risen up against Trump. The national-security establishment has not quit in droves, even if a couple of senior State Department officials have followed Mattis out the door. The President’s poll numbers have not collapsed, and the members of the G.O.P. in Congress who once said that Mattis was the only thing standing between Trump and utter chaos confined their protest over his departure to a few mildly critical cable-TV appearances and newspaper op-eds.”….
While Republicans took a beatdown in the midterms?
They seem to NOT take that as a warning that Trump’s ‘go hard’ 2016 victory isn’t working right again in 2019….
They also seem to not be aware of Trump history of failures in that same ‘go hard’ thing that has defined his life in the last few decades….
Republicans seem to willing to walk off a political cliff with the guy….
And Trump seems clueless and not caring that he is gonna leave a mess for Congress and the next President to clean up….
