Rump Shutdown Argument Shutdown. 0-3

Hello there. I have a a couple of deplorables in my life and a few Republifools sprinkled in and I have spoken to 3 of them now so far about this rump temper tantrum shutdown.

So far the winning argument is: yeah well why didn't he do this when he had control of both houses??
It has shut everybody up. There is no good explanation...only bad ones.

1. Because Trump desperately needs a diversion from the Mueller investigation.

We, meaning the informed voters, all know this.

2. That's good. The other main response is: Why is the government shut down?

 

Why not just debate bills in Congress like normal?

4. My deplorable co worker and I talked about that prior to my final statement. He did not have much

 

to say about this. It was a 1-2 punch. He doesn't like to talk much about this like he used to because of all the bad news obviously but I started today anyway with oh ya hear how the orange asshole negotiates? And we went from there and it was over quick.

3. It's an inconveniently direct question, isn't it?

Why didn't the Republicans set this $5 billion on fire when they had the White House and both houses of Congress (just 10 days ago!)? It's a "crisis" only now when Trump wants . . . well, he wants something, but even he may not know what that is.

5. The simple answer's easy: Democratic Senators

and the Filibuster.

The complicated answer isn't: Dems already approved Border Security packages in previous budgets and TRUMP DIDN'T SPEND THE MONEY.
