Did the Democrats dealing with the President over DACA, which led to a government shutdown, scar the psyche of the Left?
The January cessation of certain government services lasted just three days, two of those being a weekend, after Democrats refused to sign on to a federal budget because guaranteed amnesty for illegals was not included in a deal.
Past shutdowns have always managed to be pinned on Republicans, but this time President Trump, the consummate branding expert, was able to finally out the Democrats as being at fault for the halting of government services. In fact, the incident became known as the ‘Schumer Shutdown’, following Chuck Schumer’s caving in after being politically outmaneuvered.
With a second shutdown looming, American News Alert reports that the Democrats are doing everything they can to be slapped with ownership for another failure in governance.
No one less than Sen. Dick “S—tholes” Durbin (D-IL) is waving the white flag of surrender as the February 8 deadline looms closer and closer.
“There is not likely to be a DACA deal, though we’re working every single day on telephone calls and person-to-person to try to reach this bipartisan agreement. I don’t see a government shutdown coming.”
I don’t want to see a shutdown — I want to see us do our job. It’s up to us over the next few days to work towards a deal for Dreamers. Listen to my interview on WGN Radio on how we can move forward: https://t.co/r7220bet0G

So, the Democrats are already lining up to avoid a shutdown WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY conceding that any deal on DACA is DOA. My, oh, my, how the mighty Left have fallen.
Durbin’s comments come less than twenty-four hours after the President seemed nonplussed about another shutdown, reports CNN.

“If we don’t change [the immigration laws], let’s have a shutdown. We’ll do a shutdown and it’s worth it for our country. I’d love to see a shutdown if we don’t get this stuff taken care of.”
Between being shellacked in the last shutdown and now having the rug pulled out from under them on a possible sequel, the Democrats are being revealed as the Emperor with no clothes after years of Republicans telling us how well adorned they were.
What do you think? Did Trump outplay Democrats on the shutdown?
