The government shutdown is upon us. Has anyone noticed? No? Of course no one has noticed. It’s the weekend heading into Christmas. But the government “closes” every weekend and holiday. Yet somehow, we’re supposed to fear the shutdown, because somehow it’s different than the government just closing.
Trump was right to announce that we’re pulling boots-on-the-ground out of Syria. On that, I agree. I didn’t agree with how he did it. I explain why in segment two.
In segment three, I give advice to Trump on how he should handle the shutdown by explaining, via his bully pulpit and on national TV, why the border wall is so vital. As if he needs my advice.
