Think about this...what would have happened if the last REAL President

had shut down the government like this orange criminal has done and stated "It will stay shut until I get Medicare for all"?

My next question...HOW THE FUCK CAN ONE PERSON HOLD THIS ENTIRE COUNTRY HOSTAGE??? It just doesn't seem possible, but here we are. It is a script right out of the Twilight Zone.

2. It's not one person.

Holding the country hostage. It is easy to focus the blame solely on trump (and he owns a big chunk of it) but he could not do this alone the leadership of the Republican Party is just as responsible as trump. The Republican Party is hoping to come away from this disaster unscathed. They know a calamity is coming and they are hoping to hide behind trump and place all the blame on him. This cannot happen. The entire Republican Party needs to be held accountable not just trump.

And, one person could not do this, it requires the complicity of the R party

7. I know the entire party is to blame, but it does seem to be ONE person who is keeping

the government closed. Whether you want to name that person as turtleneck or the orange criminal, it's still one person. How is that possible in America? That is the question.

3. McConnell is equally to blame as well as . . .

Trumpski's gutless Republican supporters, hoping and praying this all goes away, that they too won't be found culpable in the treacherous disregard of their duties. Magical thinking, something the GOP is good at.

A pox on all of them! Or maybe a jail cell. I'm in favor of the latter.
