The fact that the libs keep saying Trump is taking the government “hostage” is so absolutely laughable.
Sure – he’s demanding money for the wall… and they’re REFUSING to provide it. It’s not that Democrats ACTUALLY hate walls, or that $5.7 billion is all that much in the scheme of things – it’s just that they DON’T want to bend the knee to Trump.
This has NEVER been about a wall for them – it’s JUST about not letting Trump get what he wants. They know that as long as Trump doesn’t build the wall he promised, some Conservatives may not vote for him again. In fact, they’re counting on that.
Shockingly, an MSM outlet is calling them on it:
AP FACT CHECK: Democrats put the blame for the shutdown on Trump. But it takes two to tango. Trump’s demand for $5.7 billion for his border wall is one reason for the budget impasse. The Democrats refusal to approve the money is another. https://t.co/9IWnqUgl2d

IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO.
And the libs just CANNOT DEAL:
AP FACT CHECK: Lincoln put the blame for Civil War on the secessionists. But it takes two to tango…https://t.co/VYEDfqVvt2

AP FACT CHECK: Bank officials put blame for the hostage crisis on the bank robbers. The robbers’ demand for “all the money you have” is one reason for the crisis. But the bank officials’ refusal to pay up is another.

WAIT. Are these people really THIS stupid?
AP FACT CHECK: The police put the blame for the killing on the murderer. But it takes two to tango. Repeatedly stabbing the victim is one reason for the murder. The victim’s refusal to stay alive is another.

Today’s AP: “Yes Japan bombed Pearl Harbor. But the USA responded by fighting back. Takes two to make war. So both sides are to blame.”

@AP shames itself, and weakens the credibility of not just the 4th estate, but the concept of the 4th estate, daily. It’s time for credible journalists to publicly disavow them and other #FascistPropagandists. Tolerance of these bad actors is a form of complicity.

The lame cliche is barely the eighth most offensive thing in that tweet.

I demanded a $1 million raise from Sporting News and they share the blame for our spat because they did not give it to me.
