Democrats will blame the Republicans

The Republicans will blame The Democrats

At least the lame stream media no longer has a lock on the desimination of information so maybe some people will be able to make up their own minds
Trump said he would fix DC. Kelly overruled him

Also kind of funny as Arizona was actually part of Mexico, the old border moved north and only became a state in 1912...
I was thinking the same thing
no wonder flake and McCain are so sore on trump ,just worrying about re-election

Huh? Flake is showing some balls because he is not running for re-election. McCain has an extremely serious (almost always terminal) cancer fight on his hands and isn't up for relection until 2022, if he somehow lives that long. Not worrying about reelection allows politicians to act with a bit of integrity and call Trump and the GOP out on their bullshit and extremism.
Flake must be looking at a show on CNN so as for McCain he'll be keeping it in the family I'm sure

Just so we are clear, are you unhappy with Flake and McCain standing up to Trump on certain issues?

How many more decades of whining are we going to get about the “lame stream media”?

I’ve never heard liberals complaining about the complete conservative dominance of talk radio for decades. Fox never shut up about their all conquering ratings. Murdoch is one of, if not THE most dominant forces in global media.

The Republicans shooting themselves in the foot again this week with the protecting the family schtick.

Trump and the porn stars of course.

Now Meehan, who has set himself up as the defender of the victims of sexually harassment has been outed as paying off his former aide from tax payers coffers.

Will they ever learn, or do they even have to if the voters are idiots
Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity

Are you suspicious of the motives of those who choose to defend or remain silent on Trump?

Donald Trump used Twitter to urge Senate Republicans to end the impasse by taking the “nuclear option” if the “stalemate continues”.

Such a move would allow Republicans to pass legislation without Democratic support, lowering the majority needed to pass a bill to just 51 votes. It is, however, not favoured by the GOP Senate leader, Mitch McConnell.

The president arguing that Democrats were placing the nation’s borders under threat by opposing a short-term budget fix.

“The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked,” Trump tweeted.

The remarks followed an agressive Trump campaign advert released on Saturday, which said Democrats opposing the president’s hardline immigration agenda were “complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants”.

Marc Short, the White House director of legislative affairs, told NBC’s Meet the Press “that ad was produced by an outside group and not those of us in the White House”.

The ad concludes with a picture of the president giving two thumbs up and his voice saying: “I’m Donald Trump and I approve this message.”

The Vermont senator Bernie Sanders condemned the ad, telling CNN’s State of the Union is was “nonsense and outrageous”.

Sanders, an independent who caucuses with Democrats, is helping lead efforts to secure talks safeguards for Dreamers, young undocumented migrants brought to the US who gained protected status under the Obama administration that was rescinded by Trump.

News shows repeated Fox & Friends footage from 2013, when Republicans in Congress drove the last government shutdown, over healthcare reform.

“Well, if you say who gets fired it always has to be the top,” Trump said then. “I mean, problems start from the top and they have to get solved from the top and the president’s the leader. And he’s got to get everybody in a room and he’s got to lead.”

The Senate needs to lead,” Graham said, “because no one else is and the White House staff is making things very difficult.”

Graham said White House proposals for spending on border security were “just not credible” and referred to a senior policy adviser to Trump and leading immigration hardliner when he said: “As long as Stephen Miller’s in charge of negotiating on immigration we’re going nowhere. He’s been an outlier for years.”
