After watching Trump’s Presidential Address this evening, and the Democrat rebuttal articulated by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer, it’s very clear Trump has lost this battle. His justifications are hollow. The 800,000 Americans whose lives have been maliciously thrown into a tailspin, are an exponentially greater consequence than the few bad actors who may potentially slip through our Southern Border with an evil intent while we strategize about planning the installation of new border security technology.
There’s a bipartisan coalition in the Legislative Branch, both the House and the Senate, who have a list of very effective, and technologically advanced, methods and techniques to protect our borders. Done. The majority are onboard with spending money for these brilliant ideas. The senseless, degrading, horrible shutdown is just another example of how unfit Trump really is. We’ve been collecting all the red flags. One after another. Storing the red flags safely and reminding ourselves regularly that these are indeed red flags. Trump is unfit. This is scary. It’s actually more than scary, it’s terrifying, particularly for the 800,000 who are about to feel an extremely painful sucker punch.
The solution is simple. End the shutdown immediately. Pay the 800,000 on time. Remove both Trump and McConnell from office. In fact, Trump’s annual physical is supposed to be on January 12, 2019 (if the rule for “annual physical” is every 365 days). Trump absolutely must visit a real doctor this year. Further, Trump appeared drugged / incapacitated during the Presidential Address. This needs to be investigated. A drugged President who no longer uses advisers and has seven Acting Cabinet Secretaries is the most alarming National Security threat America has ever faced. McConnell should be expelled from the senate. It only takes 2/3’s. It seems like we’ve almost reached that number and with some effective lobbying, this can be accomplished relatively quickly.
So yes, both sides of the coin have been shared with the American public. Trump’s arguments fell flat. There’s no valid rationale for keeping the government shutdown. We’ve reached the turning point. Open the government, or declare Trump unfit for office. These are the two choices now.
Trump didn’t stop and tweet following the #PresidentialAddress . How unlike him. Is he impaired and thus unable to tweet?
Mitch McConnell has been completely silent on the shutdown for nearly three weeks, but then suddenly tonight he had something to say:
Senator Blumenthal is one of the steadiest, most patient and reasoned Senator in the Legislature:
