Is this a cry for help? Donald Trump is plaintively wailing about his lonely bondage in the purgatory of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He would rather be at his luxury golf resort in Palm Beach, but he’s suffering the hardship of languishing in the big, old, drafty White House alone, frightened, and depressed by his sad misfortune.
After firing off a tirade of tweets about how he is being attacked from all directions by the media, law enforcement, and the people’s representatives in Congress, Trump immediately descended into the depths of despair and desolation. And all because the Democrats on the Hill refuse to play with him. This new Twitter tantrum is rife with the melancholy of a nasty playground bully who can’t understand why he is being shunned.
Take a look at what poor Donnie tweeted out in a fit of misery and abandon. Play close attention to the parts that read like the forlorn passages from a morose teenager’s angst-ridden diary, and try not to weep: “I am in the White House waiting for you!” – “Democrats come back!” – “Democrats could solve the Shutdown in 15 minutes!” – “There’s almost nobody in the W.H. but me.” – “You would have to understand the fact that I won the election.” – “I am in the White House ready to sign!”
Democrats should come back to Washington and work to end the Shutdown, while at the same time ending the horrible humanitarian crisis at our Southern Border. I am in the White House waiting for you!
3% of Federal inmates are illegal immigrants. Border arrests are up 240%. In the Great State of Texas, between 2011 & 2018, there were a total of 292,000 crimes by illegal aliens, 539 murders, 32,000 assaults, 3,426 sexual assaults and 3000 weapons charges. Democrats come back!
Democrats could solve the Shutdown in 15 minutes! Call your Dem Senator or Congresswoman/man. Tell them to get it done! Humanitarian Crisis.
I just watched a Fake reporter from the Amazon Washington Post say the White House is “chaotic, there does not seem to be a strategy for this Shutdown. There is no plan.” The Fakes always like talking Chaos, there is NONE. In fact, there’s almost nobody in the W.H. but me, and…
….I do have a plan on the Shutdown. But to understand that plan you would have to understand the fact that I won the election, and I promised safety and security for the American people. Part of that promise was a Wall at the Southern Border. Elections have consequences!
We have a massive Humanitarian Crisis at our Southern Border. We will be out for a long time unless the Democrats come back from their “vacations” and get back to work. I am in the White House ready to sign!
First of all, it should be noted that the Democrats are in Washington and passing bills to reopen the government. They’ve passed several already, but the likelihood that they will ever reach the President’s desk is small because his toady in the Senate (Mitch McConnell) won’t allow them to come up for a vote.
Secondly, Trump isn’t helping his cause when he deliberately misstates the federal statistics on crime and immigration. He is only making Democrats less interested in working with him because they know he can’t be trusted to deal in good faith or even use verified facts in his arguments.
Trump’s is complaining that the press is misrepresenting his administration as “chaotic.” But his explanation for why that isn’t true is that he’s alone in the White House. How is that better? A president who can’t keep his staff around while the government is supposedly in crisis is arguably a bigger problem than chaos.
Trump claims to have a plan to end the shutdown, but doesn’t say what it is. Although he does say that it only has meaning if you “understand” that he won an election two years ago. Well, that clears it up. And never mind that he lost an election two months ago, with Democrats making historic gains in the House. He continues by noting that during his campaign he promised to build a wall. But he seems to have forgotten that he also promised that Mexico would pay for it. He never promised to shutdown the government unless American were forced to pay for a wall that most say they don’t want.
Finally, Trump again implores Democrats, who are in Washington now, to “come back from their vacations” because he is “ready to sign!” Well, he also said he was ready to sign three weeks ago when the Senate passed a bill by unanimous voice vote. The House was about to pass the same bill, when Trump watched a report on Fox News that criticized him for not standing tough on the wall and changed his mind about signing anything.

If this pathetic melodrama didn’t bring you to tears, nothing will. Trump’s wretched fate is nearly as pitiful as that of the federal workers that he has driven from their jobs in order to force his idiotic vanity wall down America’s throat. His loneliness and abject fear of what he delusional imagines is an empty city is heart-wrenching. The sad shadow he casts could be brightened if only he would agree to reopen the government without making ridiculous and ego-driven demands. But alas, he is too stupid and vain to realize that.
