As the ongoing partial government shutdown trudges on, Trump is only digging his heels in further as he fights to secure the country’s borders.
Most Democrats, who have staunchly held onto their open borders rhetoric, almost seem eager to let this nonsense drag on as long as possible, government workers be damned.
But there is a growing belief among leftists and Democrats that their steadfastness may be playing right into the deal-making hands of the president.
Watching that grim reality dawn on them has beep utterly priceless.
Take, for instance, liberal Donny Deutsch visibly losing his mind on camera on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” as he realizes that Democratic stubbornness has all but backed them into an unwinnable corner in a hilarious clip captured by Newsbusters.
“I hope Chuck (Schumer) and Nancy (Pelosi), today, you’re figuring it out, ’cause he’s going to win this,” Deutsch bemoaned.
“He’s winning here! You have to understand he’s going to open the government. He’s going to declare an emergency. He’s going to say, ‘The Democrats closed it.’ He’s going to put the Democrats into court,” Deutsch also noted.
Here’s the thing: Trump doesn’t even need to do that. Any American that’s not brainwashed by the left can see what’s really happening.
Trump is letting the government shut down to fight for funding for secure borders and security.
Democrats are letting the government shut down for… not funding secure borders and security?
Trump is actually fighting for something while Democrats are petulantly disputing anything that Trump stands for.
Perhaps the best part of the above clip is the inevitability of it all. Deutsch almost seems resigned to the fact that Trump has been playing chess while Democratic leadership has been playing checkers, and he’s about to checkmate them.
Trump’s not just winning, he’s cornered the Democrats into winning for him.
“He will absolutely declare an emergency. He’s a reality show producer and he’s producing this. I couldn’t figure out why he went on the air the other night because I knew he wasn’t going to do it then,” Deutsch continued. “He’s like now he gets to say, ‘I went on the air. I asked the people. I went down to the border. I had these meetings.'”
Deutsch even went so far as to say that Trump had beaten the Democrats with political martial arts.
“It’s a judo move. He’s going to say, ‘I opened the government,’ which basically plays to every autocratic instinct he can. He loves a pardon and anything he can do with a pure executive order,” Deutsch added.
This is gold. Trump’s winning by simply not doing anything. Whereas some of the spineless Republicans of the past may have rolled over to leftist demands, Trump is refusing to do so.
It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you have a president with an actual backbone.
