Day 364

Updated 1/18/2018 10:35 AM PST

1/ Trump will back a short-term funding legislation after causing confusion on Twitter. Hours earlier Trump tweeted: "CHIP should be part of a long term solution, not a 30 Day, or short term, extension!" By calling for a separate, long-term extension of the Children's Health Insurance Program, Trump contradicted the Republican legislative strategy with less than 48 hours before a shutdown. The Republican proposal included a six-year extension of CHIP as part of their short-term spending bill, which would fund the government through February 16.

Hmm… :thinking:

NBC News reported last night that Mueller OK’d them having the same lawyer.

Not newsworthy other than the extreme schadenfreude it inspires but…

Seb Gorka, notable Trump White House and Campaign Alumni, has an arrest warrant out in Hungary.

The best way to prevent all future government shut-downs is to pass a law that Congress doesn’t get paid if & when there is a shut-down. Then maybe we’d see them get some work done, ya think? It’s a (bad) joke, as things stand.
They don’t care enough about the inconvenience of real working Americans, including military & vets.

Re Gorka: “All the best people…” :roll_eyes:

While the government is likely to shut down, Trump will be holding a $100,000/ticket inauguration anniversary celebration. For $250,000, a couple can also participate in a roundtable.



So . . . with 13 business hours to government shutdown, Trump’s ass is heading to Mar-a-lago for a $100,000 - $250,000 per plate party, proceeds going to . . . well . . . Trump. Basically, party through the RNC. Yeah.

Anybody got a dry suit that can go over formal wear or something so I can sneak in and watch these people choke on the world’s most expensive overcooked chicken?


…oh, if only he would. [choke] My joy would be irrepressible!

That’s because he didn’t get invited to this party👇



But the lawyer is also a witness, which is prima facie conflict of interest. In some cases that can be overcome, and I’m sure they’ll do some clever legal dance to try.
