    Look at all that winning, guys. They're clearly responsible of leading the country.

    When one of them, just one. votes against what Trump wants, includi9ng the stupid Wall, I'll care what they say. Until then it's blowing hot air.

    A Year Ago, They Marched. Now a Record Number of Women Are Running for Office

    Erin Zwiener returned to Texas to settle down. At 32, she had published a children’s book, won Jeopardy! three times and ridden roughly 1,400 miles from the Mexico border up the Continental Divide on a mule. In 2016, she moved with her husband to a small house in a rural enclave southwest of Austin with simpler plans: write another book, tend her horses, paint her new home blue.

    One day last February, she changed those plans. Zwiener was surfing Facebook after finalizing color samples for her living room–sea foam, navy, cornflower–when she saw a picture of her state representative, Jason Isaac, smiling at a local chamber of commerce gala. “Glad you’re having a good time,” she commented. “What’s your position on SB4?” After a tense back-and-forth about the Lone Star State’s controversial immigration law, Isaac accused her of “trolling” and blocked her. That’s when she decided to run for his seat. Zwiener never got around to painting her living room. She’s trying to turn her Texas district blue instead.

    Again, Trump's an idiot. He wants to blame a shutdown on DACA on Democrats, but public perception won't be that, because he's the idjit who ended DACA, and turned it into a political football, rather than leave it alone. He's also the one shooting down Democratic and GOP compromises after hardliners show up to sway him, and he rambles about "S***hole countries". Like, Lindsay Graham & Dick Durbin HAD A SOLUTION TO THIS, but Baron F***face von Clownstick can't have anything that lets people of color in the country, ever.

    Who takes the blame for this shutdown? Trump. And the GOP hardliners. And the GOP sane crew has been more than willing to slag the hardliners, hoping they individually will save themselves.

    They're just going to cede more momentum, and add more height onto the forthcoming blue wave in November.
    More proof that Trump is, if anything, stupidly predictable. I'm guessing it won't be long before the President of Mexico tweets back and says "Screw you" to Dolt45 about paying for the wall.

    I was surprised to hear this morning that Kelly was trying to get Trump come down from the idea that there's going to be a physical wall stretching some 2000 miles. Kelly has had experts come in and tell Trump that there are areas where the terrain would make it impractical to construct one. Trump is insisting on a 700 mile stretch with a $20 billion dollar price tag in the Democrats want to see anything done about DACA. And that parts of the wall are going to be see through

    Sen. Graham seemed to imply that Kelly was part of staff that was responsible for Trump's hostile mood during the imfamous sh*thole meeting but it's more likely the two deniers Cotton and Perdue and other hardliners and probably Nazi Youth member (joking) Stephen Miller that got Trump stirred up.

    This is a part of this administration that is dangerous, and we've heard this before, that Trump listens to the last person/group to get his attention. These reversals are making things dangerously chaotic.

    All the things they saywe don't have money for, like children's health, infrastructure.
    And they are going to spend tens of billions on a useless stupid wall?
    We are lead by ignorant, corrupt assholes.

    This isn't the Great wall of China. Even still it's not like we don't have budget for- oh right, the tax stuff.

    And even if they wanted to get into America, what's stopping them going around the wall like them going around the border itself like they already do? Are we going to put the coast guard down there because if not its incredibly shot-sighted.

    Trump is fixated on the Wall because building structures is all he really knows. That's his answer to everything.

    This. Establishment Republicans like Graham and McConnell have only established themselves over the past year as speaking out against Trump in the proposal phase, but getting in line when it comes to a vote.

    A multi-billion dollar wall, easily defeated by $50 ladder from Home Depot. The embarrassment would be total. And if you can't go over or around the wall, you go under it, the drug lords in Mexico and South America can tell you all about that.

    Well, Europe and Asia aren't shitholes, so they're OK.

    Except when Asia won't let him build one of his buildings there. Then apparently it is.
