Via late reporting from the New York Times, we now hear from sources inside the White House that Trump is whining to close aides that he is being “crushed” on the shutdown and trying to figure out what to do.
How about, as Former Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill said on Lawrence O’Donnell, “Take yes for an answer.”
They had a deal. Trump had agreed to it. It passed the Senate UNANIMOUSLY.
But then, boo hoo, hate media talk show hosts Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham whined that Trump gave Democrats too much (while, at that time, RepubliCONs still controlled the House, Senate and Presidency). They scolded Trump, said he was a bad boy, and cowardly little Trump turned his balls over to Ann Coulter (which is why she has them and he doesn’t), abdicated his presidency, turned his authority over to Coulter, Limbaugh and Ingraham, and shut down the government.
Trump owns it. He said he would be PROUD to shut down the government. He said he would “take the mantle” of a shutdown and would not blame the Democrats.
Why should Democrats negotiate with someone who makes deals and then backs off and moves the goal posts AFTER a deal has been made.
The “art of the deal” should not include changing your mind after an agreement is made.
Just do the deal you already made.
