The shutdown could Thiessen, the longest and most ‘stupidest’ in the history: Marc

in the vicinityVideoIs the fight over border security and the partial government shutdown, a turning point reached?

The ongoing partial government shutdown may Post up to a couple of historical milestones, the Washington columnist Marc Thiessen said the “Special Report” All-Star panel on Wednesday evening.

After President Trump’s Prime-time address from the Oval Office on Tuesday-and the reaction from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY — tensions continued at a meeting on Wednesday in the White house, where Trump left, allegedly, in the room, after Pelosi said the Democrats would Fund the border wall, even if Trump is again the government.

The “All-Star” panel, which included Thiessen, Real Clear politics associate editor A. B. Stoddard, and Washington Free Beacon editor-in-chief Matthew Continetti, weighed, and on the political consequences of the talk of Tuesday, and the showdown over the border.


Thiessen began with the note that a certain difference between trump address from the Oval Office and the Democrats’ response, that the President, the word “compromise”, while his political opponent was not.

“We beat on Saturday, provided that nothing magical happens in the next few days, the longest government shutdown in U.S. history. It’s already reached another historic milestone, this is the stupidest government in American history,” Thiessen told the panel. “Since we have a $4.4 trillion federal budget and we are having a fight now about the difference between the $1.3 billion that the Democrats approved for wall and 5.7 billion dollars, the President Trump is a challenging task, the .0998 per cent of the Federal budget.”

Thiessen called then, Schumer, Pelosi, and Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill, for the support of the “gang of Eight” bill in 2013 that have financed would be 700 miles of border fence.

“That was five years ago! Now, all of a sudden, the wall is a immorality?” Thiessen. “The Democrats are the benefits of here. What is amazing here is that you should use to make the trump, a whole bunch of things, and are you to their leverage over one side of nothing.”

Stoddard voted Thiessen to ask that the Democrats “at a certain point, for something” instead of just “resist” the President. Otherwise they would consider themselves “complicit” in this part of the government shutdown. Then he pointed to the ability of both sides to compromise on the IF receiver to interpret something Trump base, as “Amnesty.”


“This is the way out of the shutdown. Both sides have said to win, and both of you have hurt,” Stoddard.

Meanwhile, Matthew Continetti pointed out that Pelosi and Schumer messaging, as their primetime answer has shifted to the government, the workers, something he suggested signals that the Democrats may not be on “solid political ground.”

“Here, Nancy Pelosi restoration is as speaker of the house and you spend gonna, what?, To adopt your first month in dealing with this, and not all of them, the liberal wish list that you wanted a law, by shifting the debate in terms of a liberal agenda?” Continetti told the panel. “I continue to believe that the longer this lasts, the more leverage the President Trump.”
