2. Well, if there is any silver lining, he just may succeed in angering enough R's & convincing enough

of his abject incompetence to move us ever closer to impeachment (and at least a closer vote).

7. CNN: Trump, House GOP to meet over shutdown-border dispute

Trump, House GOP to meet over shutdown-border dispute

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump will meet with House Republican lawmakers at noon Thursday to discuss the how to avert a government shutdown amid a dispute over border wall funding.

"The President is having a meeting with Republican House members at noon today," White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. "At this moment, the President does not want to go further without border security, which includes steel slats or a wall. The President is continuing to weigh his options."

Trump remained ambiguous Thursday on whether he will sign a measure temporarily funding the government in order to avoid a year-end shutdown, as he lamented a lack of funding for his desired border wall.

A senior White House official told CNN Friday it's possible that Trump will decide not to back down on the wall fight as a result of growing pressure from the Freedom Caucus and conservatives.

The official said it's still unclear what Trump will do, a similar situation to the omnibus signing last March.

9. Steel slats? Isn't that what's usually called a fence?

Although that doesn't have quite the zippy ring to it at a rally.

What do we want? STEEL SLATS! Who's gonna pay for the steel slats? MEXICO! .... naw...
