Pity the poor Democrats, all decked out for a party in Brussels, but their plans vaporize when President Trump yanks the plane out from under them, and all because of the government shutdown and the Democrats’ refusal to negotiate with Trump about his area of special concentration: a protective wall along our southern border.
After witnessing Nancy Pelosi flying off to Hawaii just as the shutdown began; then watching a gaggle of Democrats laying about on the beach in Puerto Rico while 800,000 government employees are without paychecks, the Democrats are having a bad photo week. And most recently, add to these scandals a crew of Democrats-only, planning to take a multi-nation junket, at government expense, while government employees are still out of work, and you have a bunch of fools in your sights.
Ya gotta love President Trump and his ability to stymie the likes of our unconscious Democrats with his moves from left field. The arrogant Nancy Pelosi never saw it coming, even though she started it by uninviting President Trump to the annual and traditional State of the Union address. When Nancy made her SOTU-denial move the leftist press thought this action was genius, splendid and tres clever. But when Trump one-ups her with his very well-aimed move of denying her military aircraft to go to Afghanistan for photo-ops, the lying press call him childish and vindictive. But how can the shutdown be negotiated and government employees put back to work if half of the negotiating team, Nancy and her fellow-non-travelers, are not in town to negotiate?
All dressed up for a Euro-cation, California Democrat, little Adam Schiff, seemed very put out at being denied the trip that his position justified. But aside from the Brussels outing, Nancy and her pals were also going to Afghanistan so they could be seen talking, oh-so seriously, with the military personnel stationed there, and I’ll bet Little Adam Schiff even bought a desert camouflage outfit equipped with epaulets and a canteen strap to show his solidarity with our soldiers, marines and air force personnel who are serving in Afghanistan. Having his photo taken with American citizens who risk their lives every day guarding American interests around the world is the closest he’ll ever get to living with the discomfort and danger that the military experiences every day of their lives.
