Trump Tantrum Watch: Going Full Scrooge With Shutdown




                                            Good Day World!

In the spirit of Ebenezer Scrooge, our reality show president wants to put a bigly show on today by closing the government down just to appease his followers.

The GOP majority in the House passed a partisan bill yesterday with Donny's $5 billion wall in it, but the chances of the Senate passing it is about the same as Trump never lying again.

Impossible. 

I'm not sure if the Trump lackeys in the Senate will even bother trying to pass it. But puppets are puppets and there may be a witless effort to try without the numbers. It is, after all, a big show for Ringmaster Donny.

Demonstrating that the only thing he cares about is his racist base, and that cabal of assholes in the House - The Freedom Caucus - Trump is content to put hundreds of thousands of federal workers out of a job (without pay) days before Christmas.

That's just damn cold.

Oh yeah! Trump has left another Christmas gift for Americans this year;

A plunging stock market. This is the worst December performance since the Great Depression in 1931

In the story, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens', Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the ghost of a former business partner, Jacob Marley, and it changes his life for the better. 

In the Trump version of A Christmas Carol, his former lawyer rats him out to prosecutors, and he becomes even more crazy than before and shuts down the government.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
