  1. Hmmmm, why does trumpski's wall fixation sound suspiciously similar to the events of "Escape from New York" and "Escape from L.A."? Does he think he's gonna be elected president for life? Curious…….

  2. republicans want to shut the govt down permanently, and sell all govt services and priorities of the country to wall street.

  3. HAYI KNOW WHAT LETs DO LETs STRAP A FEW BOLLION DOLLORs TO A ROCKET AND FIRE IT INTO SPACE. AND THEN START A FEW MORE WARs OR WE MIGHT HAVE TO START SPENDING SOME OF THAT FREE TO CORPOATE MONEY ON THR PEOPLE. AND WE CAN"T HAVE THAT!!!!   I KNOW BIULD ANOTHER WORTHLESS WALL..

  4. I don't think I'll ever figure out why the "promise" of this stupid wall idea is one he needs to keep while lower cost, better health care coverage (billed as so easy it could be done day one) is not a promise broken as the Grand Orange Party buts the small improvement that is the ACA.

  5. How do you demand 5 billion dollars for a wall but cannot demand 5 billion dollars for the advancement of education and building better school systems?

  6. it definitely sounds like Trump is going to get a big cat if the border wall deals go through and because it is only one company in America who is going to deal with all the border wall businesses so I am definitely sure trump was going to get a big cat under the table

  7. Give us the wall, keep illegals out, there would be no shutdown. Shut it down, who cares everything is funded except homeland security which should be shut down anyways. Katy TURD

  8. Okay. So he actually said we are being governed by a threesome of ann coulter, Laura Ingram and rush Limbaugh. I spit out my soup.

  9. Have a jolly Christmas Groper . Hope you get your Ivanka blow up doll . Humpa humpa daddy . Hope the shut down doesn't affect your golf plans . May you choke on a turkey bone . Love .

  10. I would have voted for Clint Eastwood if only he was half his age now and ran for President. For a 'Fist Full of Dollars' or maybe ' For A Few Dollars More', he would have caught 'The Good, The Bad and The Ugly' coming from across the border and 'Hang 'Em High'. His border security plan would be his 'Million Dollar Baby' and NOT $5 billions demanded by Trump. America really needs a 'Dirty Harry' in White House. But then, Washington is no longer the place for a straight talking, no-nonsense tough nut who takes shyte from no body. Not the Republicans. Not the Democrats.

  11. Oh no! A shutdown! Gee, I sure hope we can still afford to pay Israel $BILLIONS$. After all, they’re more important than America-just like the wages of the rich/wealthy Republican politicians who caused the whole problem in the first place. What a f*cking joke.

  12. It's impressive how these privilege officals play with the lives of government workers whom depend on their wages for survival. For once I would like to see the shut down coming from the workers demanding accountability from officials. I mean, have you ever seen a corporation or factory shut down because directors can come to an understanding on a direction? If these officials are not competent in their roles, what actual purpose do they serve?

  13. Five billion dollars just for show? Imagine how many starving children would benefit from it. Yes, this country still has children who go to bed hungry every night.

    In America, 1 in 6 children may not know where they will get their next meal. For the more than 12 million kids in the U.S. facing hunger, getting the energy they need to learn and grow can be a daily challenge.

  14. All these folks are old. US is led by grandpas and grandmas. When you look at what they are doing, it is clear that the future of the world is not of concern. Grabbing another $s, more power, more influence is more important than conserving the world for their children and future generations.This is pathetic. When looked upon from, say 100 year's perspective, they will all be considered so dumb, so short-sigthed, so small-minded. And the society so dumb, so complicit, so weak.

  15. I’m from the UK so my understanding of the American political system is not brilliant. In the British Parliament, a Vote of No Confidence can held regarding the leadership of a party. There was one recently, regarding Theresa May over Brexit. She won that one and is still in power.
    Is there not a similar mechanism in the US? I suspect a he would lose the Vote.

    And on another subject – he is acting irrationally, vindictively and is totally ignorant of the the widespread effects of his tantrums. Is his mental health in question at all? Seriously? By medical professionals, or the people who could action Article 25?

  16. More than a satisfaction to Trump's ego, that wall would be a monument to the xenophobia and the gullibility of 63 millions Americans, at the expense of 327 millions Americans.

  17. To simplify a bit: Trump refuses people working for the government to receive their salary for december, because he's scared of creeps like Coulter and Limbaugh.

  18. Remember, there's still 1.4 billion in the last budget that hasn't been used for border security. Does Trump feel there must be a larger total before he can try to skim off the top for his own gain?

  19. It‘s not the Trump base wanting a „Wall“, it‘s just Fox News and hardright Media trying to achieve an iconic footprint in the politics of this administration. Trump himself would have forgotten about it already being just too lazy to do anything but looking at the polls

  20. Trumpdown. That's the proper name for this shutdown correct?  Or is it…donald screws with hundreds of thousands of federal gov't employees' lives like they mean nothing for the third time this year. Remember when you go to v*te for the 2020 election pick the lady or man who didn't use your paychecks and your lives and your family's lives as bargaining chips to fund a wall that isn't needed. Maybe it should be called "DonaldshutdownscrewsAverageFederalEmployeesandtheirFamiliesatChristmas".

  21. I was thinking He will force is to cave by setting up the blame on us by media manipulation. He can say “When I told Schumer… I was angry and I have calmed now” but then it hit me( sometimes I get pulled in by the endless channels I flip through) but We are not demaning anything. We do not want anything. It can not be our Shut Down, it has to be his

  22. There are 20 reasons Why we can not cave on this. 1 that is actually True and the Stupidist thing ever. White Nationalist Ann Coulter destroyed Trump in a Breitbart front page attack( if you want to know what they really think about Trump read it). That was immediately after he said I will sign the bill everyone passed, next day Trump said no

  23. That is the Stupidest, actually all of Fox is at it and some of them Have real mental disorders, that are of a manipulative natural and easily control thei crowd where most of them are…But finally having removed the last doubt I have. We can not cave here no matter What. This is his Shutdown, no video. We are not asking for anything. I am Slow, forgive me

  24. I just had to write I love this lady. I stopped watching Rachel and everyone else after Trump one and this is the 1st time I have ever seen. It is hard to keep a smile thru all this but she manages to

  25. No fence it is just another Manipulation. I was crazy over 1.6 billion but We can do that to get more German Sheppards and Handlers down there, not a fence I suppose He can lie about it anf Turn it into his fence. The people Who cant let take us out will know that is not a deal but his base will buy it.He is demanding,it is his shutdown

  26. I should watch until the end before I write but my heart opened up when I heard Democrats want less than 1.6 billion maybe 35 cents

  27. Now you know why the Chinese do not know how to negotiate a trade deal with trump. US economy going down under king Joffrey Trump.

  28. DON'T LISTEN TO THIS THIEVING CANCER CHILDREN FOUNDATION THIEVING LYING LEADER OF USA…AM NOT SURPRISE OF THIS LIAR WHO IS A BIG LIFE STYLE THIEF…….THIS LEADER OF USA MUST RESIGN WITH HIS CRIMINAL ADMINISTRATION INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE..

  29. SATAN THE LYING THIEVING LEADER OF USA
    SAID HE WILL NOT BLAME DEMOCRATS FOR THE SHUT DOWN, BUT NOW THE THIEVING LEADER OF USA GIVING THE BLAME TO DEMOCRATS… DO NOT BE AFRAID OF THIS THIEVING LYING LEADER OF USA….DO NOT COME DOWN TO HIM ….. PLEASE DEMOCRATS… DEMOCRATS PLEASE BE MORE AGRESSIVE TO THIS THIEVING LYING LEADER OF USA, WHO STOLE THE CANCER CHILDREN FOUNDATION MONEY.

  30. DEMOCRATS DO NOT GIVE THE LYING CORRUPTED CRIMINAL LEADER OF USA ANY MONEY TO BUILD MEXICO WALL. ……MEXICO SAID THEY WERE NOT PLAYING FOR ANY F….ING WALL…..THIS LEADER OF USA THINK HIM BAD….. BECAUSE MEXICO IS NOT GIVING ANY MONEY FOR THE WALL … BUILD THE WALL ON HIM.

  31. WELL LORD LET ALL HIS CORRUPTED LYING REPUBLICANS TURN ON HIM EVERY DAY, RESIGN EVERY SECOND UNTIL SATAN WAKE UP AND SEE NO EMPLOYEES… INSIDE THE WHITE HOUSE.

  32. SATAN THE LYING THIEVING LEADER OF USA IS FALLING INTO HIS OWN PIT HE DIG… THE MEXICO WALL….LOL.. ALWAYS DIG TWO SATAN BECAUSE ONE IS HIS.

  33. shesh calling people cancer who voted in america for trump lol we have the right to choose who we want lol. You saying that to the free people who voted for him is just outright the main problem this society is in. dear god you are a discrace for calling your fellow americans cancer. the only problem you have is him not showing taxes? lol he is rich who cares how rich or the sort he is doing this country a favor and taking the mantle of presidency to fix our nation. he could just sit in the bahamas the rest of his life he is that rich, yet he took the presidency and is putting in the work to fix america. i cant believe their are people like you in this country who cant see the hardwork he is putting in for US THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. lol scum looking for a problem in anyone. go crawl back in your cubbie hole no one wants you around.

  34. Isn’t this the same man that said a shutdown is a sign of weak leadership???????? Guess who the weakest link is? Trump.

  35. We know that first if you build a third wall you have to take land from Native Americans and land owners that have owned the land for generations….it won’t happen for years because of these lawsuits.
    We know you then have to have a company that wins with a bid that government agrees with…not some underhanded family member that can charge outrageous amounts… also going to take some time.
    You got 1.6 billion already that you have only spent 6.9% of…. you can not do some shady trump deal without America knowing.

  36. The 'Toddler in Mischief' is always in the dark even with lights switched on………….the vile fat old twit needs a diaper change!

  37. The world will find US governance becomes a meaningless standard if the US system of state cannot manage crises of this magnitude with anything more direct than a potential change of government in distant 2020 – that is a failed state. Your public outrage expresses a lot of ineffectual noise, but there is no closure.

    Are foreign observers meant to be impressed?

    How tiring is the same old hullabaloo every day for 2 years when the obvious, simplest, most equitable response the US establishment might address is simply, reflexively swept aside by political observers: the press and its opinion leaders. I wait, just a little longer, to see how this might resolve to an equitable outcome.

    Can the world stay tuned-in for another 2 years, do I have the patience to watch opinion play out daily for 4 years non-stop? Screw the news value, and resolve this repugnant fiasco by MAR 2019. Maybe friendly nations can bear to follow any new developments until then, or until such time by then that congress apparently has abdicated any power to act. If the audience value of this cycle of government is more important than equitable resolution for voters and 'the american people', it devalues people. In that eventuality your system sucks.

  38. This man is so full of it… Anyone who believes a word from this man would be the grand prize winner of STUPIDY!!!!!!!!

  39. Trump couldn't get border money with republican party in complete controll. He knows he has been exposed as a incompetent fool. Nancy will open the government next week .Trump lied to you

  40. i had forgotten that Trump's shutdown has come with Republican control of the House, the Senate and the Presidency. Ouch! Who could possibly get away with that without anyone talking about it?

  41. If Trump's supporters want that stupid wall, then they should just pay for it themselves out of THEIR OWN POCKETS. Otherwise just put up a digital wall, rewrite the illegal immigration laws or just put up an electric fence with landmines all along the border if this country wants to act like some third world dictatorship. This debate is all just a waste of time and money. So if the government shuts down, does that mean that Congress and the Senate don't get paid either? Nah, only the little man will suffer while the those pigs in the Senate get taken care of. Typical!!

  42. This is one of his Trump trantums that he wants to get. Let`s be sincerely: he makes this due the racist hate that he has for immigrants!

  43. I wished say, to the congressmen: Will you trust in a man who lately has shutdown, not only the goverment, but also his own foundation, that was because of "Irregular economic management" ???? ( I wished taht someone COULD explain to me what does it means? Will you trust in a man like this????

  44. And also, if this man wanna read this, or someone will like to give her my personal opinion, this will be the next:

    "WHATEVER THAT THIS MAN WILL DO TO ONE OF THIS CHILDREN, WILL YOU DO IT TO ME"

    -Jesus Christ.

    (This is my personal chrismas present for Trump…)

  45. Trump has had 2 years get the wall budget passed, with control of the House, the Senate, and now even the courts. No leadership… poor negotiation skill.

  46. The description has "boarder" wall? Is this a small town blog posting? BTW succesful negotiations require agreement between two parties. Two parties failed here! This biased reporting only separates the two parties.

  47. Will his secret service agents still protect him for years without pay if this goes on? How long will government employees remain as government employees without paychecks? 🤔

  48. a president with an ego so fragile that he can be pushed around by talking heads on tv, this is America now folks…
