Was this #TrumpShutdown really necessary?

Well, now. It appears that we’ll be getting a brief reprieve from the gummint shutdown our Orange Overlord actually wanted and yet again tried to blame upon the Democratic minority in Con-Gress, a arm-twisted compromise that funds our dysfunctional government until February 8 (when we’ll probably endure another tedious funding melodrama all over again). So the childen’s health insurance program will go on getting funding and we’ll carry on flirting with building Donnie Doublescoops’ border wall boondoggle and maybe we’ll treat the Dreamers with a smidgen more decency.

Hoo-hah. Was this bad trip, this stupid government trick, really necessary? Now that the shutdown has been rescheduled, we can go on barely funding the stuff our Tangerine Toddler Tyrant wants to scrap anyway, but we’ll cease looking like the laughingstock of the world. The Rs want to blame the Dems for this disruption in gridlock; typical, they have control of both Congressional chambers, the presidency, and even the Supreme Court, and they still can’t govern straight and project their failings upon others.

But it was fun watching Donnie Dollfingers sulk at his disturbingly empty Oval Office desk instead of partying and slicing balls at his pwecious Mar-A-Lago, wasn’t it?
