He thinks it would be great

The Post has another long story on how much more wack Trump is this week than he was last week. I just want to point to the final item in the story.

Trump made a surprise call into Rush Limbaugh’s radio talk show Wednesday to congratulate the conservative icon on his 30th anniversary on the air. Trump mused aloud with Limbaugh about whether it would be more politically advantageous for him to shut down the government over border wall funding before or after the November elections.

“I’ve heard a lot of people saying, ‘Oh, don’t do it before the election. We’ll upset the applecart,’ ” Trump said. But, he added, “I actually think it’s a great campaign issue. I think it would be great before.”

That’s a novelty – a president talking about a future (planned, chosen, aimed for) shutdown of the government as if it were an exciting fun beneficial thing. It’s as if he were rejoicing at a hurricane or tornado or earthquake, only more so because he’s the one planning to do the shutting down. This is how much attention he pays to the overall well-being of the people.
