Kansas City Question: Do You Support Prez Trump Dreamer Compromise?!?!?
For those blessed news junkies sharing their Saturday night with us . . . Let's start with how TKC sees today's shut down announcement . . . .
Today, President Trump blinked. Fact is, his most strident supporters want neither compromise with the Democratic Party nor a pathway to citizenship for illegal aliens brought to this country by their parents as children. That's the inherent problem with with a rabid fan base of political noobs - They don't understand that politics is all lies and big talk followed by inevitable, reasonable, anti-climactic compromise. What's worse is that the President has backed himself into a corner. He took responsibility for the shut down, proudly. And as this impasse goes on the economic damage worsens and there's no way for Prez Trump to move forward without losing just a bit of his MAGA street cred.
And we we're left with a life lesson: The friends and supporters of Prez Trump have proven to be his undoing, not his adversaries on the other side of the aisle.
