Trump Kicks Off 17th Day Of Government Shutdown With Insane Morning Meltdown

1162

This morning marks the 17th day of the government shutdown and with 800,000 federal employees worried about how to pay their bills, Donald Trump made today all about him even though he’s the individual who shuttered the government. And of course, the former reality show star lashed out at the “fake news” media. Trump spoke of his jobs numbers even in light of so many Americans, including TSA workers, now working without getting paid.

“With all of the success that our Country is having, including the just released jobs numbers which are off the charts, the Fake News & totally dishonest Media concerning me and my presidency has never been worse,” It tweeted. “Many have become crazed lunatics who have given up on the TRUTH!”

That looks like a classic case of projection to me.

“The Fake News will knowingly lie and demean in order make the tremendous success of the Trump Administration, and me, look as bad as possible,” It continued. “They use non-existent sources & write stories that are total fiction. Our Country is doing so well, yet this is a sad day in America!”

The response on Twitter was swift.

Most Americans do not want his ego-wall, which will cost a lot more than the $5.7 billion he’s demanding now. The jobs numbers in December were great but they usually are during the holiday season. And Trump’s jobs numbers still aren’t as good as former President Barack Obama’s.

Democrats have now taken power in the House so finally, there will be checks and balances to Trump’s presidency* after Republicans failed to do so. Still, he wants to circumvent Congress over his wall.

Adam Schiff, who is taking over leadership of the House intelligence committee, says he will hand over transcripts to Special Counsel Robert Mueller of interviews that Republicans withheld when they controlled the committee.

Trump is panicking and he has a lot to be worried about. Even some of his supporters are waking up, but only because his trade war is personally hurting them.
