Whatever happened to calling it the "Trump Shutdown"

as Pelosi and Schumer referred to it in their famous televised meeting with Trump? Why didn't it stick?
Now Republicans used "Obamacare" as a smear to tag the Affordable Care Act and it is widely known as only that by most people today.
Even Democrats call it "Obamacare". Are Republicans just better at sticking to their message than we are for things like that?
Because I thought from the get-go after the "Trump Shutdown" was used and he embraced it and said he was proud to shut down the government for his wall that every Democrat that referred to the shutdown should have called it the "Trump Shutdown".
How do we get better at this?

1. We can keep using it here.

I agree. It is a good label.

2. You are correct. Referring to it as a gov't shutdown is innacurate. He said he would own it and that

should be the front and center identity of what has happened.

4. House Speaker Pelosi

called it the Trump shutdown, and tRump smiled when he heard it. He owns this, I wish the media would keep playing the Dec 11 farce.

I hate this POS tRump. Don't depots and dictators usually fall at the end, but only after innocent people get hurt. So sad.

7. The media is in the GOP's pocket...

They decided it was everyone's fault and therefore everyone's owns the shutdown. 🤔

8. After it was called the 'Trump Shutdown' at that White House meeting,

EVERY Democrat should have stuck with that and called it that every time it came up. I mean, 10 years later the ACA is still called 'ObamaCare'.

Trump is now trying to hang the blame for the shutdown on the Democrats even after he proudly embraced doing it.
