Oh puh-leeze, Steve Kelley. This is a new low in “alternative ‘facts’” even for you.
Trump admitted it was his shutdown and he would be “PROUD” to take ownership of it and would not blame Democrats. More Trump LIES that Steve Kelley now becomes complicit in spreading.
Trump said he would be “proud” to shut down the government.
Trump said he would not blame the Democrats.
Trump said (before becoming president) that shutdowns are always the fault of the president.
Trump’s party control the presidency, House and Senate.
Democrats have specific proposals (originally from Republicans before they handed their tiny balls over to Nancy Pelosi) to re-open the government while still addressing disputes about Trump’s magical fantasy wall, on which the TrumpubliCONs now flip-flop and reject proposals they passed UNANIMOUSLY last month.
They even had a deal. Senate passed it unanimously. Trump had even agreed to the deal. But then, boo hoo, wacko extremist right-wing rabble rousers (Limbaugh, Ingraham, Coulter, Fox & friends) scolded him and he gave in like a little baby and Paul Ryan surrendered his supposedly separate and co-equal House (along with whatever is left of his balls) to the Trump tantrum. We now have a presidency run by talk show idiots.
Is Steve Kelley so uninformed he does not know these FACTS?
Or is he intentionally lying?
But sure. Dems to blame.
