Pelosi, Schumer Beclown Themselves

If conservatives had any doubt about why they voted for Donald Trump in 2016, yesterday’s borer debacle should have eased your mind.

Schumer and Pelosi visited The White House on Tuesday to negotiate with Trump over border wall funding in the next spending bill. The pair offered Trump approximately 1.3 billion dollars in funding for the wall, while the president demanded 5 billion dollars. The impasse could lead to a partial government shutdown.

“I am proud to shut down the government for border security, Chuck,” he continued. “People in this country don’t want criminals and people that have lots of problems and drugs pouring into our country. I will take the mantle. I will be the one to shut it down. I won’t blame you for it. The last time, you shut it down. It didn’t work.”

The best part of the argument was hearing Pelosi and Schumer demand to debate in private, while the president kept insisting to discuss it in the open.

The president has a few options here, including one which fascinated me; having the military build the wall. He can also divert allocated funds from other projects. Either way, the Democrats’ policy of obstruction will not go unpunished by this president, and it’s a glorious thing to behold.
