Trump says he’s prepared

Trump threw a press conference after meeting with legislators.

Trump “said he’d keep the government closed for a very long period of time — months or even years,” according to Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who spoke to reporters in the White House driveway.
“Absolutely I said that,” Trump affirmed from the Rose Garden shortly afterward. “I don’t think it will, but I’m prepared.”

Sure, he’s prepared, because he won’t lose his house or car or credit record or anything else; the fact that hundreds of thousands of government workers will doesn’t matter to him, because he is Trump and they are not.

Trump said he designated a group of aides, including Vice President Mike Pence, Homeland Security secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, to participate in the discussions, which he described as meant to “determine what we’re going to do about the border.”

It’s so insulting to make grown up legislators share their discussions with Jared Kushner. “Talk to my son-in-law, he’ll fix it.”

CNN reports Trump has said he might declare a national emergency to get the wall. That would be baaaad, because a national emergency gives him all kinds of powers we do not want him to have – it makes him basically a dictator.
