A government shutdown was the last thing the REPUBLICANS needed.

Another example of an “intervention” to keep Trump from harming himself, his party, or the country.

Reince must have been desperate.

They’re still trying to child-proof the Oval Office.

Looks like a twofer–Donnie could make a big show of being tough on spending, AND diss Ryan, then sign so as not to cause problems for the GOP.

Boehner: (spills Merlot) Goddamnit, you shitkickers! Just let that punk-ass little ankle-biter Ryan go down in flames.

There is a basic truth about Republicans, they never learn. Ever. If it is a reasonable definition of madness to try the same things with the expectation of different results, they are the party of crazy.
