Trump's mealy half-measure on DACA pleases exactly no one

Well, well, well.

You mean Jared Kushner — who singlehandedly brought peace to the Middle East and got Israelis and Palestinians to gather on verdant hilltops, hand in hand, warbling “I’d Like to Teach the World to Sing” in white turtlenecks and vintage sundresses — flopped in his attempt to end the current impasse over wall funding?

Then again, this wasn’t really an attempt at negotiation. It was a way to convince the American people that Trump is (ahem) reasonable. Fortunately, we’ve seen his tweets, so who’s really going to believe that?

Iron Lady Nancy Pelosi got Trump to budge, but not nearly far enough, and in the wake of his “major announcement,” Democrats remain united in their opposition to his “plan.”



Meanwhile, batshit conservatives (sorry about the redundancy) are not having any of this “amnesty” nonsense.



And Steve King, who has a, shall we say, issue with racist dog whistles (and white supremacist train whistles) used some ill-considered language in his tweet when he said we’d be “trading” human beings for wall funding.


Uh, dude. Have you learned nothing?

Trump can’t please everyone and will likely end up pleasing no one. 

Meanwhile, 800,000 federal workers are still attempting to live without paychecks.

Trump created this quagmire. He can pull the country out of this mess in literally one minute. The question is simple: Who does he want to lose? Ann Coulter or the rest of the country?
