66% of Americans blame Trump.

That's all the leverage they need.

They've got the House, public opinion, and they're closer to 60 senate votes than the Republicans are.

I'm sure Cuck and Nancy would be just thoughts-and-prayers saddened if this dragged on long enough to provide cover for Mueller to finish what even Giuliani admits will be a "horrific" report. All those Creationist judges, not getting confirmed.

Would being a TOTAL ASSHOLE matter so much to you if he was fulfilling the Progressive wishlist?

No, trump being a TOTAL ASSHOLE would not matter as much.

If he was furthering healthcare reform and immigration reform and championing the rights of the disenfranchised I would overlook his narcissistic boorishness.

Good question

because it's all political theater and posturing for his base? because it really is a vanity project? because Mueller is coming? because he really does have the attention span of a 10 y/o and this is the shiny colored ball that is rolling through the room at this particular moment?

there are no good answers.

Trump's hard core followers are so angry at the government, the media, and other "elites" that run the country that there is no limit to the damage they will do in order to stick it to those guys. A shooting war, a repeat of the Great Recession, or imposition of martial law would be acceptable to many of them, as long as they achieve their goal of total destruction of liberalism, the establishment, and the elites.

Their decisions are not data driven. They’re essentially anti-reason

Because he knew it wouldn't happen and there was no way to fulfill his promise of Mexico paying for it. Now he can blame Dems for his failure and his base will eat it up. Maybe he saw the writing on the Wall he'll never build. shrug

With respect to the shutdown, all the libertarians who wanted to see Prez Rafael Cruz are seeing many of their wet-dreams come true, so yeah this is a positive for his base.

he didn't. he got carried up in it cause he's illiterate and can't read any foreign policy memos his advisers would give him and more importantly it was something he thrived off the reaction at campaign rallies.

Just the truth, and sooner or later you will have to admit it, unless truly brainwashed or too cowardly to admit you were wrong.
