Well, it seems Anne Coulter and some other right-wingers have finally realized they backed a loser. They have discovered that the man in the White House is a flim-flam man, a con artist, a huckster, a shill, a deceiver. In other words, he’s a liar. They were willing to tolerate his immorality and lying as long as they garnered wins for their side, but they cannot stomach the fact that he is a total sham. Now we can hope that Republicans in Congress will also realize the same reality and grow a spine.
Given that the agreement was exactly what Democrats asked for a month ago, it should be obvious that there was no real goal in the government shutdown except to feed the base and prop up a sagging ego. What a sad commentary on the leadership of the Republican party, or should I say the Trumplican party.
