  1. In 2019, the federal government will spend $4.407 trillion. Yet Congress is shutting down the government in a dispute between the $1.3 billion the Democrats have approved for border security and the $5.7 billion the president is demanding -- precisely 0.0998 percent of the total federal budget. In Washington, that is considered a rounding error.

     

    Crazy that Trump shut down the government over 4 bil. What a turd.


  2. This is the president of America and leader of the free world folks. JFC. He literally might be retarded.

     

    Hannity: You said earlier today that its likely that you are very likely going to declare a national emergency. How soon would that happen?

     

    Trump: If we dont make a deal with Congress, most likely I will do that I would actually say I would. I cant imagine any reason why not because Im allowed to do it. The law is 100 percent on my side. So, if we cant make a deal with Congress, we should be able to make a deal with Congress. If you look, Democrats in Congress, especially the new ones coming in are starting to say wait a minute, we cant win this battle with Trump because of the fact that its just common sense. How can we say that a wall doesnt work? They show on helicopters empty fields and people just running through. And you put a wall, they cant run through.

     

    Hannity: What are the options though if you declare a national emergency, the Pentagon also has the funds available that they would be able to help support the building of the wall.

     

    Trump: If we dont make a deal with Congress, which we should be able to. Really just common sense and there is some compromise needed and, look, they know that the wall is working. Do you know what works? A wheel. And a wall. They call it a medieval thing. Well, you know, Im looking at all these very expensive cars all over here loaded up with machine guns and every single one of them has wheels. A wheel is an old thing. There are two things that they work. A wall would be so effective. It would solve so many killings and so much death and drugs and human trafficking. Where they tape up women on their face. They tape them up and put them in the back of a car or a van and they drive right through our border.

     

    Trump: They know what Im say something 100 percent right. Its not only us, its everybody saying it everybody says it. If you dont have a barrier, whether its a steel barrier or a concrete wall, substantial and strong, you never are going to solve this problem. You are never going to solve and I dont need. This look, I could have done something a lot easier. I could have enjoyed myself. I havent left the white house because Im waiting for them to come over in a long time. You know that. I stayed home for Christmas. I stayed at the white house for New Years.

     

    Hannity: I think you tweeted Christmas Eve all alone, where is Chuck and Nancy?

     

    Trump: My family, I told them stay in Florida and enjoy yourselves. The fact is I want to be in Washington. I mean, I consider it very, very important.


  3.  

    Better than trolling around with all the other trolls? That's rich. I'm no different than you man. Just a guy killing a little time before I leave work. If I wanted to hold hands and sing songs, I'd go to FBG.

    This bored has been whipped up into such a frenzy over this shutdown drama, I dont know whos trolling and whos being serious anymore.


  4. Way to deflect. Really top notch deflection instead of pointing out the obvious that 1. acosta is a Jack a** and 2. that maybe don't film in an area that's got a great huge wall to try to prove that a wall doesn't work when there is nobody at it.

     

    If only you guys held the president to the same standards as you hold hack news reporters. :cheers:


  5. That was the most cringeworthy impromptu press conference Ive seen. Im really wondering if this guy even wants a second term or if hes flaming out hard on purpose.

     

    The best is when he repeats the line we've heard many of the usual suspects here regurgitate over the last few weeks "when he said Mexico was going to pay for the wall, he didn't mean they would actually write a check, but it would be paid via tariffs blah blah".

     

    Fortunately, he's about as dumb as they come, so that's really easy to disprove.

    “Make a one-time payment of $5-10 billion to ensure that $24 billion continues to flow into their country year after year.”

  7. They can't feed their kids? After missing one check? You want to be taken seriously?

     

    We're trying to be taken seriously around here all of a sudden? I thought we were just busting one another's balls. You guys are the people thinking a wall in the middle of nowhere is going to stop drugs and scary brown people from entering the country. Not a good a starting point to have any sort of serious discussion.


  8. Why are you more worked up about some people having their pay deferred than you are about the cop killed by an illegal alien in your sanctuary state just last week? And the illegal aliens that helped him hide?

     

    Why are you more worked up about a state letting the federal government do the job of the federal government, than a bunch of veterans who can't feed their kids, because the president is throwing a temper tantrum?


  9. Frankly, the fact that we have 800,000 people not deemed essential on the government payroll is the national emergency.

     

    Sounds to me like a large chunk of those positions should be phased out.

     

    Not to even mention the millions getting a check they don't work at all for.

    250k of them are vets. Why do Trumptards hate vets?
