Vanity Fair says they are quoting a former White House insider that says that President Trump won’t back down from the Wall controversy. They said that he believes he either builds the wall or fails to be re-elected. I won’t link to Vanity fair because they suck and don’t deserve any clicks. But it’s an interesting question. Will Donald Trump tough it out? And will the Republicans in Congress back him up or fold like the cheap suits they wear? I think that second question is easy. Of course they’ll fold. They are the hollowest of hollow men. They can’t even spell integrity no less have any.
Can Trump take on the Democrats, the Republicans, the Courts, the Media, the Bureaucrats in the Justice Department and all the other Swamp Dwellers in DC? Without a doubt I’m behind him 100%. I would trade ten years of salary to see him shut down illegal immigration. But I won’t lie, I think he has his work cut out for him. He is surrounded by a endless ocean of vampires who live off the blood they suck out of this country. They’ll fight to the death to hold onto their latch on our jugular. But just imagine if he wins. Think of the adrenaline rush to know that the beast can be tamed, that the enemy was made to blink. It makes me giddy just thinking about it. If he could accomplish that then who knows what else he might do. Maybe he could start pressuring the companies currently employing illegal aliens to stop. That would be truly worthwhile.
So we’ll have to wait and see how this plays out. I’m guessing there are several more weeks that will play out before anyone can detect a pain point for one side or the other. Will the Democrats scream first or will it be the spineless Republicans. And will Trump have the backbone to ignore both sides? Will the Dems begin impeachment to back up their threat and if so will the Senate Republicans stand up to them or fold?
Any way it goes it will be the biggest story of the year I think and we’ll learn a lot about all the cast of characters that inhabit this drama. My sense is that Vanity Fair’s source is right. Trump will go the limit to build the wall. My guess is that the screaming from the Democrat constituencies when the shutdown pain starts biting will get chuck and Nancy to say uncle. They’ll put some kind of brave face on it but they’ll cave. My only hope is that he doesn’t throw them some kind of DACA deal. That would actually be a net loss. At worst he should give them some kind of soft soap about humane conditions for asylum seekers and other distressed individuals. But hopefully no more than that.
So how much time should this take? I say the maximum is two months. Let’s call it St. Patrick’s Day. What do you folks think?
