Trump's Early Christmas Gift to Democrats

In a surprising blow to his own party’s congressional leadership, the president on Wednesday struck a deal with Democrats to package nearly $8 billion in Hurricane Harvey relief with a three-month extension of government funding and increase in the debt ceiling. Trump agreed to the request by House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer over the objections of Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who had wanted a longer increase in the debt ceiling to prevent Republicans from having to take multiple, politically painful votes to raise it in the coming months.

“We essentially came to a deal, and I think the deal will be very good,” Trump told reporters on Air Force One after meeting with the top four congressional leaders at the White House. In a sign of how the meeting went, he praised the two Democrats he had until recently called “obstructionists,” and he neglected to mention Ryan and McConnell at all.

Trump even held out the possibility of giving Democrats a much bigger prize in future negotiations: a permanent legislative fix for undocumented immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally as children who were protected from deportation under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which he announced would be winding down. “Chuck and Nancy would like to see something happen, and so do I,” the president said.

No, it is his blindsiding his (theoretical) Republican allies I find funny. Trump isn't a conservative, never was. But people like you carry his water and play the role of useful idiot defending and enabling him. Trump grabbed his rabid supporters by their collective pussy and will never let go, nor do they want him to. They like that hand right where it is.


Hey, do we need to prepare for the NK invasion you mentioned before? I got Faraday cages for my phone and stuff, but when the NK frogmen arrive from across the Pacific, should we do anything special? Bake them a cake perhaps?

Since they'll probably be defecting if they do show, yes, a cake would probably be a good idea.

They will be starving (both from the long swim and because they are North Korean), so I agree. My first instinct on this is the right path.

The "deal" was not to grease the way for disaster relief.  It was to grease the way for debt-ceiling-increase.  Disaster relief is urgent and has public support.  Debt ceiling?  Not so much, particularly with the freedom caucus guys.

Not only is Trump helping ensure debt ceiling increase gets passed, he is playing footsie with Schumer and Pelosi to do it.  McConnell and Ryan (who are, you know, republicans) wanted a much longer increase so they won't have to do these votes again.  They fear their own right wing.

It's all just lots of fun to watch.

Yes, I heard about this. Just goes to show McLame’s true loyalties. Hopefully, Trump won’t go to his funeral very, very soon.

Hmm... putting the American people ahead of party.  The Dems could take a lot of example from this.

Dems won't be able to use the storm as a blunt object against Trump on all the slobbering media.
