MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace called Trump and the Republicans who think that Democrats will be blamed for the government shutdown delusional.
Wallace said, “It’s also delusional, it seems to me, bill crystal, that they think the politics are in their favor. The last we looked, the last time there was a government shutdown with a one-party control of the White House, the senate and the house of representatives, Jimmy Carter was president and we all know he was a one-term president.”
Republicans are going to take the heat for a government shutdown, as it is as plain as the nose on your face that Trump’s Art Of The Deal style hardball is going to backfire. Government shutdowns never benefit the party that is in control of the government. There are no Americans who wake up in the more and think that the country is better off without essential services.
The shutdown is a horrible idea, but it is one that Trump has been pushing for. Trump blew up the DACA deal. Trump tried to demand funding for his wall. Trump complained about CHIP being extended. The problem is Donald Trump.
The American people already understand this, and only a delusional fool would not be able to see how a government shutdown will come back to haunt him.
The bad news for Republicans is that they are being led by a delusional fool.
