Trump is terrified of the far-right echo chamber

The government isn’t shut down because of President Trump’s unbelievable cluelessness as a dealmaker. It’s shut down because of his many fears.

I don’t mean his pretend fears. Surely Trump doesn’t really believe his own racist nonsense about the U.S.-Mexico border being a sieve for homicidal maniacs and walk-to-work terrorists, and he can’t be too worried about a humanitarian crisis that is largely of his own creation. I’m talking about his real fears — the ones that must keep him up at night.

Trump is afraid of Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Matt Drudge, Laura Ingraham and the rest of the far-right echo chamber. (He sees Sean Hannity as more of a house pet.) He’s afraid of his shrunken but loyal base, which could abandon him if he doesn’t give them a wall. He’s afraid of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III and the federal, state and local prosecutors in New York who are investigating various Trump enterprises. And he’s afraid of losing his coercive hold over the Republican senators who one day could sit in judgment of his fate.

Not one of these intertwined fears is irrational. Trump must realize he has painted himself into a corner but sees no alternative. According to news reports, the president knew his hostage-video Oval Office address on Tuesday and his photo op at the border on Thursday would make no difference. He must also be aware that the GOP leadership in Congress can’t hold the line forever.

To be sure, Trump has shown himself to be a clumsy and incompetent negotiator. When he reneged on the original agreement to keep the government funded through Feb. 8, he cut the legs from under anyone who claims to be negotiating for him, up to and including Vice President Pence. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) would be crazy to agree to anything at all that does not have Trump’s personal, public endorsement — and his felt-tipped signature, preferably in blood.

“You’ve got to be willing to walk away,” Trump often says when touting his alleged dealmaking prowess. And indeed that is true — in negotiations about real estate, branding rights or a reality television show. But when you are president, you can hardly walk away from your own government. When Trump tried the maneuver Wednesday — calling congressional leaders to a meeting and then ostentatiously stalking out — everyone just shrugged. He had nowhere to go.

Eugene Robinson is a lot like Paul Krugman, except without the pretend economic ignorance.

No deal is possible with the leftwing on the illegal alien invasion.  The libbies know they have no future, having alienated many people, including traditional constituencies,  with their failed policies, and their only hope for survival is to import tens of millions of more Mexican and central American peasants.

Of course he does. He has every liberal opinion writer telling him what to think.

I have always wondered why they constantly post other people's opinions. It's like wearing a big sign that reads " I have no brain of my own".
