I See a Trump “National Emergency” In Our Near Future.

After today’s show votes in the U.S. Senate, MSNBC was all a twitter — not electronically — about how “twenty senators from each party” were frustrated or infuriated by this government shutdown.  Schumer was seen going into McConnell’s office, and it seemed to the gullible reporters that a “bipartisan” solution to the Trump/McConnell government shutdown.  Oh, the…
