Trump tells House Republicans to shut down the government of the United States in an effort to obstruct his criminal prosecutions. pic.twitter.com/kLqc6wCBMq— Ron Filipkowski (@RonFilipkowski) September 21, 2023
It's sort of breath-taking, isn't it? I don't know if I've seen something so puurely selfish oh, since some dumb damn eeeedjiot helped lose the midterms for his party's House and in, oh, late 2018, early 2019, shut down the government because he started to freak out about getting his border wall money.
And he never did get that border wall money.
Who was that, now?
It's one thing for an actual president to be behind a government shutdown. Wild as a mad goose to think a candidate would openly call for one...to stop his various prosecutions. But if he wants the credit for it, I don't mind him taking the blame.
