Apparently, if the Dems aren’t nicer to the Toddler President, and soon, he’s likely to just up and shut down the whole game, because, well, toddlers ya’ know.
Mick Mulvaney, the White House budget director, told reporters Tuesday afternoon that the reason Trump floated the possibility of a government shutdown was all because of Democrats’ happiness at the spending deal. Over and over, he went after Democrats for hurting the president’s feelings. Here’s just a few of the many highlights:
“The Dems have been trying to claim victory on this, which I think is a very strange way to look at a bipartisan discussion. If you’re in a bipartisan meeting, I think it is very unusual for one group to walk out and start spiking the football and say, ‘We won, we killed the other guys.’ It certainly doesn’t bode very well for future discussions.”
“I think the president is frustrated with the fact that he negotiated in good faith with the Democrats and they went out to try and spike the football to make him look bad. I get that frustration because I think it’s a terrible posture for the Democrats to take.”
“I think what you heard this morning was his sense of frustration over how he’s being mistreated by the Democrats on a bipartisan piece of legislation.”
“You have a president who is able to work with Democrats and Republicans. Again, a little disappointed with the way Democrats acted after the deal was put together.”
“What I think you heard the president express this morning was frustration over how he’s been treated as part of the negotiation. And it may be if things don’t get better, we may get to that point [of a shutdown].”
Mulvaney works for a man who still gloats about his Electoral College victory in the 2016 campaign at every available opportunity. The Velveeta Raccoon also likes to take credit for jobs he didn’t create.
Whatever will we all do to make him happy again?
Oh yeah, sweet fuck all, same thing as he’s offering everyone else.
Resist La’ Grande Orange!
