Adjustments

As the partial government shut down barrels into it’s third week, Trump continues to try and convince people that it’s a) not his fault and b) totally fine because if anyone can handle life without a paycheck, it’s those government employees.  They’re all swimming in dough! On Sunday, when asked if was able to relate to people who can’t pay their bills.  To which Trump, of course, said that he could.  Of course he could!  Of course Trump can relate to the common man and their money problems.  I mean, Trump himself is no stranger to money problems.  Remember that time in the early 1990’s when he was a missed payment away from losing his businesses?  I mean, he still got to live in his penthouse in New York, and had all the comforts of wealth, but goodness, the banks had to put him on a spending allowance!  I mean, that’s basically the same as not getting a paycheck, right?  He can totally relate to the people he’s selfishly screwing over in the name of a bad campaign promise!  And it’s okay, because everyone who is being screwed is totally fine with it because they all care more about a wall that will do little to stem illegal immigration than being able to pay rent and for utilities!

The President Couldn’t Be Anymore Clear!

Clear intentions1

Sarah Huckabee Sanders claims that if the Senators don’t know what the President wants in terms of a deal, then it’s on them for not paying close enough attention.  By all indications, the President of the United States has the temperament of a two year old, but with less ability to reason.  We know that Schumer offered Trump basically everything he could have hoped for in a deal, and it still wasn’t enough, so honestly, the idea that people just couldn’t pick up what Trump was putting down seems at least a little far fetched.

The Art of the Deal

Best deals1

Schumer offered him the wall.  The President offered a number. Schumer agreed. And Trump walked away from the table.  He walked away from two bipartisan deals, one which included EVERYTHING THAT TRUMP WANTED, and he still goes on to call the shutdown the Democrats fault, blaming Chuck Schumer specifically, a guy who was willing to compromise to an outrageous degree to get a deal made, and the President, master deal maker, can’t take a deal where he gets what he wants.  Of sound mind and body, that’s what we were told mere days ago, right?

Nailing Down the Budget

Budget Distractions1

So another government shutdown is looming around the corner.  With political factions more divided than they’ve ever been, I don’t think it’s surprising to anyone. But this crazy inability to find any level of common ground has become ridiculous and petty.  Throwing another wrench in the works is Donald Trump constantly distracting everyone, helping to keep people from making any kind of headway. Trump just can’t seem to let things not be about him for even a few days.
