Trump Tweets ‘AMERICA FIRST’ Just After His Friends Shut Down Our Government, Hilarity Ensues

On Friday, Republicans shut down our government as they pushed Donald Trump’s hateful agenda over the good of their countrymen and women.

Trump kicked off his Saturday morning by blaming Democrats for the government shutdown caused by Republicans, who are in control of both the Senate and House — many of whom have actually supported government shutdowns in the past.

Naturally, Americans took the opportunity to laugh at him:

Trump added that “Democrats” (the party in the minority in our government) are “holding our military hostage” over a “desire to have unchecked illegal immigration.”

This, of course, is a lie. Our military doesn’t exactly close up shop during a shutdown. Who Republicans are hurting with their shutdown are everyday Americans whose children attend Head Start, military veterans who want education counseling or job training, contractors who provide janitorial, security, or food services at the federal level, and other groups Trump and his allies don’t give two shits and a fuck about.   Those are the people being “held hostage.”

When it was convenient to blame Obama for the 2013 shutdown, Trump said that it’s the President’s responsibility if one occurs.

Let’s hold him responsible.
