We’re now in week three of this incredibly stupid government shutdown—ostensibly
over whether or not Donald Trump will get his border wall (slats??????), but
actually about whether or not the president is a big dumb baby.

And although the president has been putting on a big tough face in public, the
Wall Street Journal reported on Monday that privately, Trump has been looking
for any way out of this unstoppably stupid dilemma that will save him as much
face as possible.

Per the Journal (emphasis mine):

During a private meeting with aides at Camp David on Sunday, Mr. Trump said he
wanted them to come up with a resolution to the shutdown fight that would reopen
the government without him appearing to have capitulated to Democrats, a person
familiar with the meeting said.

The White House denied the report to Splinter.

But, assuming it is in fact true, let’s parse this, shall we? Here we have a
president—one who got in front of everybody and swore that he would happily take
full credit for this shutdown—fleeing the White House over the weekend, and
asking his underlings to help him make it look like he’s not caving to the
Democrats, even though that’s, y’know... what he’d be doing.

Not gonna happen, you shit the bed on behalf of crackpots like Limbaugh,
Hannity and Coulter. Now you're going to have to eat shit in public just
like when the judge forced your buddy Michael Cohen to admit he was
guilty over and over in court.
