Propaganda Minister Conway Gives Trump An “A” For First 100 Days, Say No Shutdown Is Coming [VIDEO]

The Hill reports:

Kellyanne Conway on Friday said the Trump administration is confident that a government shutdown will be avoided next week. But the senior White House aide would not say whether money for President Trump’s long-touted border wall would have to be included in a government funding bill.

“I’m going to let OMB director Mick Mulvaney and the president and others address that, but we’re confident that the government will not be shut down next week,” Conway, the Counselor to the President, said during an appearance on Fox News.

    Difficult to believe that the Sexual Predator-in-Chief would allow congressional Republicans to shut the government down. That would become the only news story and would drown out all the other stories that he thinks are helping him in the polls.

    I’m betting it won’t happen.

    • His Holy Sh1t the Donald TRAMP

      It’s more likely than you think considering Donnie is itching to use his nuclear weapons to boost his approval ratings.
      The Repubs can also use time off to consolidate their base spreading the lie “da libruls did it”

      • another_steve

        The last government shutdown hurt the Republicans in the polls and gave the Democrats a wonderful talking point.

        I can’t imagine them wanting to repeat that fiasco.

            The deplorables want their government offices open and fully functional.

            Their anti-government bullshit rhetoric dissolves away when the loss of government services affects them personally.

          • Gustav2

            They want it to happen, then only after a week do they remember what happened the last time and get pissed.

            But will reelect the congresscreep that made it happen.

          • His Holy Sh1t the Donald TRAMP

            The hardcore deplorables hate gubermint & establishment. They’re itching for a shut down.

          The last government shutdown hurt the Republicans in the polls and gave the Democrats a wonderful talking point.

          And Republicans sure got their asses handed to them by the Democrats in the last election. Oh, wait…

            EXACTLY. You can’t use reason with the trumpanzees. You have to get inside their heads.

    Here are things that Donald Trump did in his first ten days.
    Argued about how many people came to see his inauguration, including launching charges that the media, the Park Service and your lying eyes were out to diminish his glory.
    Reiterated his belief that torture was both effective and necessary.
    Threatened to launch a federal takeover of Chicago.
    Signed the first version of his soon-to-be-blocked Muslim ban.
    Imposed an information blackout on the EPA, National Park Service, USDA, and the Department of Agriculture.
    Rearranged the National Security Council to make room for Steve Bannon while sidelining the top generals.
    Restarted the approval process for the Keystone XL pipeline.
    Ordered the Secretary of Defense to look into tactics that violate both US and international law.
    Levied a 20% tariff on Mexico by fiat. Unlevied the tariff on Mexico by fiat.
    Had a nice phone call with Vladimir Putin.
    Went on vacation and played some golf.

    By any accounting, that’s a lot for the first ten days. And those days only signaled what was to come. Since then, Trump has …
    He learned what the START treaty was about and decided he didn’t like it.
    Got upset about Melissa McCarthy’s immitation of Sean Spicer.
    Threatened a federal judge that he would “SEE YOU IN COURT” (yes, in all caps).
    Issued the second version of his soon-to-be-blocked Muslim ban.
    Lifted ban on selling advanced technology to Russian spies (hey, that really happened).
    Called a 13-year-veteran of the federal bench a “so-called judge” for disagreeing with him.
    Insulted and hung up on the prime minister of Australia.
    Used the National Prayer Breakfast to mock Arnold Schwarzenegger.
    Launched a military raid over lunch, then didn’t bother to check in on how it worked out.
    Repeatedly took credit for jobs that were announced months or years before the election.
    Claimed that President Obama “wiretapped” his phone (the quote marks are critical).
    Doubled-down on claims that Obama wiretapped his phone.
    Claimed that he never meant wiretapped.
    Claimed that he never meant phone.
    Claimed he was sure Obama had committed some kind of crime that was worse than Watergate.
    Claimed that Obama ordered the CIA, FBI, or … someone to do something to him that wasn’t wiretapping and wasn’t about phones.
    Blamed Susan Rice and said he was sure she had committed some kind of crime.
    Denied knowing that Michael Flynn was a foreign agent.
    Fired Michael Flynn for being a foreign agent.
    Produced a budget that killed Americorps, Food for Education,
    Foster Grandparents, Senior Companions, SeniorCorps, Chemical Safety
    Board, Delta Doctors, Institute of Peace, Native American Libraries,
    Disaster Recovery Assistance and Meals on Wheels.
    Worked almost two hours a day for almost two weeks on a health care
    bill that Republicans had seven years to plan but which nonetheless
    couldn’t even get passed by other Republicans.
    Gave up on health care bill.
    Decided he hadn’t given up.
    Gave up again.
    Decided he couldn’t decide.
    Made 52 tweets in a single week. Roosevelt never did that.
    Called Chuck Todd “Sleepy Eyes.”
    Passed zero pieces of major legislation. That’s 0. Less than 1.
    Emptied the White House offices on science and technology, because who needs that stuff?
    Announced that the United States wouldn’t go after Assad, which Assad then celebrated by gassing his own people.
    Announced that the United States would go after Assad.
    Told the Russians and Syrians he was going to attack and where he
    was going to attack … which someone always seemed to think was a bad
    thing.
    Sent 59 tomahawk missiles screaming into the place he said he was
    going to attack, changing absolutely nothing about the progress of the
    war in Syria.
    Dropped the Mother of All Bombs on Afghanistan, possibly setting a
    record for the amount of energy, and dollars, expended per enemy
    casualty.
    Warned North Korea that they should look at Syria and Afghanistan
    to see what could happen to them, causing North Korea to be really glad
    they had invested in missiles and nuclear weapons.
    Played a lot of golf. I mean, a lot of golf. Like, averaging more than one game of golf a week.
    Openly discussed military operations at Mar-a-lago so that the guests there could both hear the discussion and take pictures.
    Doubled the membership fees at Mar-a-lago.
    Had a beautiful, beautiful piece of chocolate cake.
    Did many, many things that made you forget for a moment that the
    President of the United States is under investigation for possibly
    colluding with the Russian government to alter the outcome of a US
    election.

    Unfortunately for the president, he does not have even one real legislative victory. His most substantial achievement is a bill allowing hunters to kill bear cubs in their dens during hibernation. His only serious attempt at negotiating a legislative deal was so badly botched it ended in ignominious failure after just 18 days of debate in the House. That, of course, was the health care bill meant to “repeal and replace” Obamacare. Recent rumors of a quick revival are, according to savvy observers, a product of White House hype and desperation for a 100-day “win,” rather than a sign of any real movement on the issue.

    In other words, Trump’s 100-day achievements have consisted of him signing some orders, getting his picture taken with people around a big table, instituting “law and order” through his henchman Jeff Sessions — and failing to get even one major piece of legislation passed into law, despite his party’s congressional majorities.

    So the GOP spent the Dubya years enacting every harebrained the movement had developed over 40-ish years.

    As those on the predicted, these harebrained schemes didn’t work.

    Instead of learning from this, and crafting a platform that would, you know, actually work, the GOP instead spent the Obama years (1) screaming hysterically about all the crazy stuff the Democrats were/are doing,* and (2) over-promising to their base on basically every level.

    Now that they control the entire government, the GOP is basically impotent because they spent the last decade over-promising to their base and now have to magically produce a rabbit out of a hat.

    But they have no hat. Or rabbit, And it turns out they don’t know any magic tricks at all. And it also turns out they’re all a bunch of morons.

    Am I about right?

    I think this explains everything you need to know about the failed Trump administration.
