Shutdown won't fix the mess ... trump will still be president.
shut it down, shut it down, shut it down.
One of the things Trump doesn't realize is that he is not CEO - he is President. And that there are checks and balances put in place to prevent the very kind of situation Trump desires most.
So I agree - a shutdown won't fix anything because he still can't manage to work WITH congress.
It might, there is a chance it could pull together a veto proof majority coalition of Democrats and moderate Republicans to avoid shutting down the government.
With trump's track record, I don't think we have much to worry about.
But the optics are pretty bad, seeing a sitting president call for a government shutdown.
But his base LOVES it. Unfortunately - I don't think Trump realizes that his base didn't really get him elected. They helped - but there are people outside his base who voted for him (or against Hillary) and are likely not amused by these types of antics. If he even finishes a 1st term - winning a 2nd terms is simply not in the bag.
His base didn't get him elected? Then who did?
I think he means swing voters. Hardcore fans are a lost cause and will never ever accept they were wrong, no matter the consequences.
More than his base - what I refer to as those that think he can do nothing wrong - is what got him elected. You don't think he won solely on what most consider his "base" do you? There are a lot of people who are not his base who voted for him because they didn't like any other candidate and/or found him to be the better choice. But that doesn't mean they are his base. His core supporters.

If there was ever a year for the Republicans to nominate an automatic rifle with a magic 8-ball duct taped to it for president, this would have been it. We'd all be getting our tax rebates paid in the form of ammo this year. But no, they blew it. Trump.
Impeachment > Shutdown
they TRIED what the DNC did, it didn't work, they sent everyone after trump from the rest of the GOP leadership to faux news and he beat them all
I think you just described a Unicorn. This mythical creature that think Trump is infallible doesn't exist.
Huh. You really need to come and visit Ohio some time...
Are you kidding? Have you seen the interviews at Trump rallies with Trump supporters? A lot of them are very cultish in their devotion to Dear Leader. He seriously can do no wrong in their eyes. Trump himself noticed this and said he could shoot someone on 5th avenue and they wouldn't care. And he was right.
It's really unbelievable that Trump has actually called for a shutdown. Man, he gets crazier by the day. Morning Joe was throwing out the Dementia word a lot this morning. Maybe it's that setting in.
Right. The same as the slavish Obama supporters that thought they wouldn't need to pay their bills anymore.
First, the subject is Trump, not Obama.
Secondly, what? Who thinks they don't have to pay bills anymore? Only someone as crazy as Trump is, just on a different subject.
Bring down the Wall! Bring down the Wall!

Trump forgets he is the government what a maroon.
I don't get it.
