Shut-Down Follies, Part Infinity

Stable Genius Prznint Stupid

Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie breathlessly tells us (idiosyncratic emboldening and capitalization is theirs):

TIME IS DWINDLING, and Capitol Hill is waiting for PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP to say what he would like to sign. At this point, it would be difficult to see Congress clear a seven-bill minibus in four days. So either the government shuts down Friday, or somehow both sides agree to a short-term spending bill.

THE PRESIDENT ISN’T GOING TO GET his $5 billion. No way, no how. So the question is what will he accept, and how much time will he give Congress to do it. The House isn’t in until tomorrow night. At the moment, TRUMP isn’t negotiating, nor is he stating how he’d like to see this standoff resolved.

So besides saying he would “be proud” to shut down the gubmint if he doesn’t get his way, and Prznint Art of the Deal is not negotiating? Yeah, we’ll go with that. Remember, he’s taking 16 days off to play golf at Merde-a-Lardo.

Tiger Beat also has a post up that gets to the heart of The World’s Greatest Negotiator’s Strategy:

“A former White House official who spoke with Trump Friday said the president is relishing in the fact that Republicans are awaiting his signal and letting him set the terms.

“Trump wants to “maximize drama,” per another Republican close to the White House.”

He wants a season-finale cliffhanger. Everything with the mango-hued shitgibbon is The Apprentice.

    Screw going back in time and killing baby Hitler; I want to go back in time and kill baby Mark Burnett, inventor of ‘reality TV’ …

    These poor, pitiful Rethuglicons……..they really have no one to blame save themselves. They created this awful beast, this bloviating, blubber-filled behemoth, and empowered him, but the truly unfortunate part of it is we are ALL suffering due to his Imperial Madness.

    If only we could remove them to a walled-off section of the country, (see what I did there?), and they could make and enforce all the terrible, truly awful laws they want, applicable only to them, in their depraved Republic of Conservistanigan.

    For surely the Talibangelicals shall guide them, and the Ammosexuals and Gundamentalists will guard and protect them, and Y’all Queda, along with the rest of the denizens of Possum Hollar will frolic for everafter, basking in the warm glow of the books they will be burning.

      I’ve always contended that Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas could be used for that purpose, nothing otherwise noteworthy having emanating from them in decades…

    It wouldn’t surprise me a bit o learn that Trump believes that if the government is shut down then Congress can’t impeach him.
