It wasn’t supposed to be like this for Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer. He had witnessed previous shutdown blowback pummel hapless Republicans as a willing and determined Mainstream Media shaped the anti-Republican narrative.
This time was different. This time Schumer was dealing with Donald Trump and millions of highly informed Trump supporters/voters.
The result? Critical swing states such as Ohio are coming out against the Democrats on the current shutdown shenanigans as Americans wonder why in the hell Democrats would shut down government paid for by citizens in favor of non-citizens. Over the weekend Democrats became increasingly nervous as they watched the Sunday news shows fail to halt the anti-Democrat tide rising against them. In the early Morning hours of Monday, Senator Schumer let it be known – the shutdown needs to end or his party is going to be on the receiving end of some seriously angry voters come the Midterm Elections. Phone calls are said to have been received from the Schumer office with the same message – “We need to end this go**amn shutdown.”
An emboldened Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is calling for the vote as Schumer, other Democrats, and now the media, will go into full-on spin mode to try and make the fiasco appear to be something less than a total and complete failure on their part. (And remember, it was D.C. Whispers who first reported over the weekend that “Schumer had blinked” even as Establishment Media disinformation was indicating different. That report is now being proven 100% accurate.)
And we haven’t even got to a resolution on the #releasethememo scandal yet.
Tick-tock Mr. Obama…
