    This government shutdown is like Trump's wives and businesses; once he is gets bad publicity from it or it's too old for him, he wants out and find someone else to blame for the problem he created.

    Jesse Torres maybe you should go ahead and put the blame on all the innocent American citizens that have been killed and crimes committed against them because there was no physical border wall to keep them out all of you need to look past your hate for trump and face the reality that a fucking border wall would keep the criminals out that is what it is plain and simple so go and shit all over the families that have lost loved ones I'm sure their used to it by now.

    Trump is just waiting to own the record for the longest govt shutdown, then he will cave and declare victory.

    Chris, methinks you are missing the point completely. If nothing else, every day the “big” government is shut down: 1) the government is literally smaller, 2) focus on the Mueller investigation (representing the enemy “Deep State” rule of law) is redirected and the rule of law is diminished, 3) fewer entitlements are disbursed and 4) as chaos expands, the need for a “strong-man,” aka, dictator grows.Why would the white supremicists ever allow the “big government” to resume operations?This wall is ...

    5:28 I sure hope the White House and Congress don't wait until "today" (DEC. 8, 2019) to broker a deal! I don't want to be on furlough for an entire year!Looks like @CNN forgot to proofread their graphics and texts before publishing this video.
