Would have been nice if they had passed a bill to keep the budget funded at current levels, until a new budget gets passed.

You know, take away the ability of dotard and sad-turtle to hold the country hostage during their next tantrum.

Why would they even have to discuss this when Trump completely took credit and completely owned the shutdown on live TV. What is there to debate?

Mugato: Why would they even have to discuss this when Trump completely took credit and completely owned the shutdown on live TV. What is there to debate?


The media is too invested in screaming bloody murder about Trump's tweets (remember the one where someone put a CNN logo over a WWF performer's head and CNN went apeshiat for at least a week?).  They're like a dog that falls for the fake throw Every. Single. Time. They're looking for a nonexistent dog treat and Trump's yelling "fake news" and they simply can't understand why anyone would think such a mean thing.

So here we have a protracted shutdown; Trump owned it on TV and pre-empted any yelling and finger-pointing, but they're falling for it anyway:

Trump: "This shutdown is all mine; I'm responsible!" (or whatever the actual words were).

Congress: "Oh yeah? Well, here's a resolution officially saying you're responsible for it!"

Trump: "Yes; I already said that."

I mean, what does it say that the dumbest president in the last 100 years keeps tricking the media into tripping over its own dick?

After the original resolution was filed, Republicans objected to specific parts of it referencing the president's role in the shutdown and quoting House Republicans expressing disapproval for shutdowns as a tactic

How dare someone use their own words against them?!?

They didn't say those words
Or they are out of context
Or they didn't mean them that way
Or EMAILS

That started with Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar calling for a vote on a motion to adjourn, forcing members to leave committee and constituent meetings for an unscheduled floor vote early Tuesday afternoon.
That's the guy who's so noxious his siblings did a commercial against him, right?

Gah, and if I had just read three more paragraphs I would see that it was confirmed.

What do Donald Trump and an expired Chuck E Cheese pizza coupon have in common?

Both of them used to be good for just grabbing a pie.

Actually the long-winded and hard to follow FA says that originally the resolution blamed Trump and a bunch of republicans for the shutdown, but then it was amended and the language "softened".

But since there was no information on the final version, it is hard to say what did the resolution actually say.

Bad article, subby.

Pretty sure nowhere in the entire history of civilization has "Let's grab some pizza!" been followed by "How about Chuck E. Cheese?"

After the vote, a Roll Call reporter observed a freshman member googling Gosar.

FTFA: ""The blame for a shutdown on day one is very different than the blame for a shutdown on day 35," he said. "There was no negotiations going on behalf of Democrats in terms of a fair and consistent fully engaged negotiation"

Um... Trump was the one saying "Give me my wall money and you get nothing in return" for days and days on end.

Another Roll Call reporter was in an elevator when freshman Iowa Democratic Rep. Cindy Axne asked a colleague, "Who did this, Gosar?"
When the colleague affirmed that it was Gosar, Axne said, "No wonder his whole family came out against him."

Well, he did try to destroy NYC with a giant marshmallow man. So the family had to distance itself.

Actually, Bed Bath & Beyond will accept an expired Chuck E Cheese coupon so. . .

Wow, the republicans were against the language that says the president was the cause of the shutdown. the same president who declared in open public that "This is my shutdown, it is mine!"

You can't get much clearer than that, yet still the farktwats want to argue over that language being used in a nonbinding "insert jacking motion here" resolution.

You think maybe it'll have more power than an expired Chuck E. Cheese coupon? Maybe like an expired Applebee's coupon?

I imagine it feels quite familiar to them, something they feel hundreds of times every day.

Except...Trump has tried to shift blame to Democrats since that recorded moment of "yeah, I, Donald J Trump, accept that the shutdown is mine." So your narrative is a bit flawed.

Remember, the media feels it needs to keep everything equal so as to not show bias, so they do shiat like that constantly.

It's Republicans, they're always trying to rewrite history and shift blame and try to make people forget everything they say and do.

Party of Personal Responsibility, after all.

No, but I can use the two wordings to recalibrate my sleaze estimate.

To summarize:

The fault of the longest government shutdown in US history lies with Republican president Donald J. Trump, who was aided and abetted by Addison Mitchell "Yertle the Turtle" McConnell Jr. who could've allowed a bill to end the shutdown to the Senate floor at any time. Shout out to all of the racist voters who've stuck their fellow citizens with these assbags.

There's your resolution.
