M&G^^^while I certainly understand your “shiny object” metaphor, not quite sure I would agree it’s apropos in this situation because this dude’s demand for almost $6B for a border wall is tied to his refusal to signing a CR to keep the government open.
One could certainly argue that his MAIN objective is to divert attention from all the scandals that Mr. Mueller is investigating. And while that would most likely be true, hundreds of thousands of federal employees are adversely financially impacted. And their plight only gets worst tomorrow when the first checks that would have been cut since the 12/21 shutdown will NOT be cut.
And that shyt ain’t no metaphor......it’s VERY real.
This “game” that dude is playing now, claiming he never said that MEH*ee*co
would “really” pay for the border wall is a GROSS insult to the intelligence of the American people. The dude has spent his ENTIRE adult and professional life as a consummate CON MAN, and he obviously now believes those “con” skills will work on an entire country.
This is Orwellian
, it’s evil, and speaks to a level of malevolence that neither Nancy nor Chuck may have contemplated.
As the bruthas on the streets of Nashville would say.......NOW it’s gettin real.
