Trump cancels trip to Davos citing government shutdown, which would suggest that he expects it to still be going on at least another 10 days.

presidential travel is really tricky during shutdowns - the white house is without key people to do advance logistical work

He might have got an idea from a lackey, like Stephen Miller. Or misheard/misunderstood what they said and went in his own direction with his stupid idea. Of course, assuming he got this in his head it's not going to work because he's improvising like crazy and doesn't know how anything works.
Fair enough, dude's an idiot through and through.

I'm very calm, I didn't smash the table. I didn't, but I should have. - Trump

I like how he says he's very calm, but then said he should have smashed the table LOL. He can't help but contradict things seconds later, he's that stupid.

If Democratic President or VP announced that they have absolute right to declare a national emergency GOP would be at the walls of White House to set it on fire on basis of President doing over reach and striving for authoritarian abuse of power.




Jake Sherman
NEW … Hill press corps just sat down w @VP … “The president believe he has an absolute right to declare a national emergency under his authority as president of the United States.” He said Trump has not made a decision, but will get this done “one way or another"

“No wall, no deal,” Pence says in briefing at the Capitol. Repeatedly thanks congressional Rs for “standing strong” & says Democrats are stonewalling in negotiations.

If this dumbass can just declare a national emergency from his ass over something as pointless as the wall with no blowback, does this mean the next democratic president can do it for shit thats actually desperately needed?

If GOP has any hold of Congress then absolutely not.

I have no idea how any minority can speak positively about Trump. Especially at this farce of a roundtable meeting. Seeing these people give their accounts in some thin veiled attempt to make trump look good is sickening.

It's so insane to me that this is what his hard stance is on. He really just wants this to be his legacy. If they were this hellbent on fixing healthcare, the water in flint, or even the trade deals he could actually do something positive.

This is just pure buffoonery.

Kinda shines a light on even the democrats. Why hasn't ANYONE been that strong on Flint, climate change, healthcare and such.

Pres shown contraband being smuggled into the US, including weapons and drugs, interdicted by US Border Patrol.

"If we don’t have a barrier, a wall, we will never solve the problem of illegal entries and smuggling crossing into US, says Pres Trump. "The Democrats' position of no barrier/no wall is indefensible," he says.


Lisa Desjardins @LisaDNews

NOW: Watching video of POTUS at the border w/ customs officials, but they are pointing to some drugs and weapons found at *ports of entry*.

So a wall or barrier would not affect the smuggling of those things.

Y'know what, guys? Trump is doing this whole government shutdown thing so he can campaign for 2020. He hates his job, this is one of the ways he can stop doing it. He loves campaigning but he hates his job so he's shut down the government to go out and campaign. He doesn't give a shit about his wall.

How did they catch those super fast powerful cars that are so much better than cop and ICE cars?

I have a Mexican-American cousin that’s full on trump fanboy that’s posting shit about Obama shutting down the government for 17 days to get Obamacare funded.

Our grandma was what he would consider an “illegal”

But unethical doesn't even begin to describe Hannity and Fox News' actions.
Water is wet. There are no ethical considerations for Fox News.

TBH, nothing to discuss when it comes to Hannity and Fox News, they're the white house media at this point.

The hell is that shit inside of them? Sawdust?
Since nobody wanted to give you a real answer, it looks to be wood. The slats aren't solid steel, they're wood with steel wrapped around them. If I'm wrong someone can correct me but that's what it looks like and nobody else was offering. I imagine that would make it even easier to get through than if they were solid, jfc what a joke

Good, so it takes what, 3 generations for people to forget they're immigrants?
Wasn't there some dickhead talking about the wall a few weeks ago who's own mother was a Mexican immigrant?

Wouldn't surprise me, Mexicans(-Americans) can be very interesting at times, to put it very nicely.

So if steel slats can just be cut down... what's the scrap metal value of that steel, would someone just cut it down and sell it for scrap?

I contacted my local GOP office and asked for a reimbustment due the shutdown hurting the local economy. They told me that I would need to call the White House. I of course then asked if that meant that it was Trump who was responsible for the shutdown. The response was "No. That's not what I meant. You should call they uh uh uh". They hung up the phone before answering.

Now I'm imagining this incredible scam of cutting down parts of the wall to sell the pieces as scrap back to the United States to repair the wall.
