Axios morning email thingie tells us how bad Prznint Stupid is at negotiating:
“As an indication of how negotiations are going, Trump had lunch with lawmakers in the residence yesterday to discuss border security — but only with Republicans. (On a conference call with reporters, a senior administration official wouldn’t say whether Dems were invited.)”
So, a deal does not seem likely anytime soon.
The Senate will not be in session until next Thursday, but in the meanwhile will have a pro forma session to stop Trump from making any recess appointments. So sorry, Senatorette Lindsey Graham, you will NOT be appointed Secretary of Defense. Not this week, anyway.
I will not be going to Florida because of the Shutdown – Staying in the White House! #MAGA

So no new Florida Man stories for the holidays, either.
