Joe Lockhart on New Day: Give him the 5 Billion in exchange for Mueller Protection.

That may be the ticket out of this Trump shutdown for now and ultimately the end of the idiot.

2. This is our chance to get pukes to go along with Mueller protection.

The stupid trump wall can be stopped later.

3. Sounds like a horrible idea.

 

Sounds like completely selling out on a humanitarian crisis with no long term guarantee for the oppressed. No long term guarantee at all. It almost sounds like someone who wants the wall.

5. Huh? Can you elaborate?

Getting the traitor out of office is of paramount importance isn't it?

6. Where is the guarantee this would remove him from office?

 

If that is what you are going with then the deal needs to be that we give him the wall and he steps down. I still wouldnít be ok with that. As you have outlined, this isnít a deal for him to leave office.

9. You're not gonna get a deal for him to leave office.

But Mueller's work could eventually lead to his removal and the 5 billion is not guaranteed to result in the stupid wall. IMO.

12. So give up the wall for nothing.

 

Thatís what this is. Of course he isnít going to leave office for the wall. And this deal would do nothing to facilitate that either. Yes. Letís give him the wall and then be thankful the day Pence is sworn in. Not a chance.

7. No let's don't. Fuck that idea, Trump owns any shut down.

Why should we piss away 5 billion dollars? That's a lot of money to satisfy the orange fucks ego.

11. Even worse than satisfying his ego...

It is a wall intended to satisfy xenophobic and racist voters.

13. I'd say no on this

We don't have enough money to take care of people who need Medicaid or Medicare, but we can piss $5 Billion away on a stupid wall??

No - also McConnell can't be trusted to do anything that he says. He would make Senators vote on the wall and then not bring up Mueller for a vote. Look at me I'm Lucy!

15. If we are going to trade for the wall, it has to be big.

17. Of course it would not happen, but

I'd love to watch his reaction to that deal. Then add on to it, the House will not release his tax returns in return for him to step down and away.

18. No! A wall along the border is wrong for many reasons...

If something is economically/financially, ethically and morally the wrong thing to do, which that idiotic wall idea is, than it certainly shouldn't be used as a bargaining chip and shouldn't even consider it.

If we cave on this we look insincere and weak on issues that are at the core of our party. Find a 'bargaining chip', with Trump and/or Republicans, that they can't pull a 'Lucy' on (Peanuts reference) and that allows us to stand strong on our position(s).
