It’s a day to honor MLK but the government shutdown is messing up people’s plans

For years, Nikeland Nichols has traveled hundreds of miles to march on the streets of Atlanta with his children, sing at the church where the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. once preached and tour the civil rights figure’s birth home.

Analysis: The question Trump still hasn’t answered

President Donald Trump told reporters on the South Lawn of the White House Monday that suggestions he was some sort of Russian agent were totally ridiculous, and insisted that the entire special counsel investigation into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election is a “whole big fat hoax.”

Graham: Trump’s willing to “do a wall-plus,” so let’s reopen gov’t to negotiate it

Westlake Legal Group graham-fns3 Graham: Trump’s willing to “do a wall-plus,” so let’s reopen gov’t to negotiate it The Blog Lindsey Graham Government Shutdown donald trump daca compromise Border wall

“I think the legislative path is just about cut off,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) lamented yesterday to Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday, but Donald Trump doesn’t. Graham told Wallace that he personally urged Trump to declare a national emergency and use Pentagon funds to build the border wall. Trump declined yesterday morning, so Graham now wants Trump to reopen the government for a brief period first:

A top Republican senator on Sunday said he asked President Trump to reopen the federal government at least temporarily but that the president first wants an agreement on border-wall funding, the sticking point in the longest partial government shutdown in modern history.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R., S.C.), a close Trump ally, said he spoke with the president Sunday and recommended the government be allowed to open for about three weeks to pursue broader immigration legislation. Democrats have been proposing a variety of funding options to reopen the government, including a stopgap funding bill for the Homeland Security Department. Mr. Trump at a White House meeting last week rejected reopening the government without a commitment for funding a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. …

“I tried to see if we could open up the government for a limited period of time to negotiate a deal, and the president says, let’s make a deal, then open up the government,” Mr. Graham said on “Fox News Sunday.” He added: “He’s not going to give in,” Mr. Graham said.

What’s the point of a three-week window of reopening government? Pelosi won’t give in on the wall, not with government open or shut. Ah, but what if Trump gives her what she wants on immigration? Graham told Wallace that Trump’s willing to make a grand bargain for a “wall-plus,” if only Democrats will negotiate in good faith:

GRAHAM: The plan is to do a deal. He is willing, in my view, to do wall plus. Funding for the wall that we desperately need that’s been done in the past. See if we can do a deal around the TPS recipients who are going to lose their legal status.

WALLACE: Those are temporary protected status. (CROSSTALK) Let me just state, temporary protected status.

GRAHAM: Right.

WALLACE: People who came in from disasters.

GRAHAM: Thank you.

Yes, there are about 400,000. They are going to lose their legal status soon. He’s willing to extend that. The DACA recipients, they are all tied up in court but I think he would give them work permits for three years, one-time renewable if you could get wall funding.

I don’t want to speak for the president. I don’t want to lock him in, but I’m confident what I just described with a few other things would be a deal acceptable to the White House. And a lot of Democrats — and I’m just so frustrated — we can’t get in a room and hammer it out.

Graham’s kidding, right? That’s not even the deal that got floated a year ago, when the White House offered to sign off on a statutory version of DACA in exchange for $25 billion in wall funding. Pelosi isn’t going to give $5 billion in wall funding for a one-time work permit concession. At this point, even the full DACA-and-TPS-for-the-wall deal is unlikely to work, as Marco Rubio noted last week; too much political trench-digging has already taken place and hostilities are too high now. This has turned into a contest of wills, and no one’s willing to be the first to back down.

So how long will this last? Wallace says that his administration sources say the shutdown could last into February, and he asks Graham how much damage that will do. “Less damage than if we don’t fix a broken immigration system,” Graham replies. “The real damage is people coming across the border, selling drugs, killing Americans, that needs to come to an end.”

It doesn’t sound as though anyone wants a compromise, even though the deal has been obvious for a year — years, in fact. The only reason to re-open the government for three weeks is for political cover so that Trump can feel justified in abandoning the legislative path.

Trump’s reaction to this was predictable. “I’m not interested,” Trump declared at a press avail this morning. “I want to get it solved. I don’t want to just delay it. I want to get it solved.” Small wonder Graham’s feeling depressed these days.

Trump on Ocasio-Cortez criticism: “Who cares?”

Westlake Legal Group to Trump on Ocasio-Cortez criticism: “Who cares?” Trump The Blog racist ocasio-cortez immigration Crazy bartender

Imagine all the House Democrats watching the clip below this morning, feeling their first-ever twinge of identification with Trump.

It was Ocasio-Cortez (and probably Rashida Tlaib) whom he had in mind when he said the following on Thursday, no?

“I really believe that they don’t care about crime,” Trump said. “I really believe this. The Democrats don’t care about crime.”

“They’ve been taken over by a group of young people who, frankly, in some cases, I’ve been watching, I actually think are crazy,” Trump said Thursday. “But they’ve been taken over by a group that is so far left, I really don’t think they care about crime. Sadly, they are viewing this as the beginning of the 2020 race and that’s okay with me. But they have been taken over by a group of people who don’t care about gangs, human trafficking or drugs. They don’t care about anything. I tell you why, they have gone crazy.”

That was 36 hours after she appeared on MSNBC to wonder why we’re funding ICE. Part of her social-media strategy is to seize on slights from the right and promote them to her audience, responding either as whiny victim to rally her fans to her defense or as a happy warrior eager to brawl with ideological enemies on their behalf. Trump’s “who cares?” dig was too mild for door number one so today we get door number two:

Trump doesn’t drink but she’s going for a “loudmouth at the end of the bar” thing there. POTUS’s own Twitter strategy is similar to hers although not identical. He also alternates between victim and brawler — maybe that’s the secret ingredient to building a modern political personality cult — but he rarely comes off as a particularly “happy” warrior. (At his rallies, perhaps.) And he uses social-media for score-settling. There’s no Ocasio-Cortez version of the “embarrassing random potshots at people whom I have a grudge against” genre. Yet.

They’re perfect foils for each other, politically and demographically. I think he’s holding off on engaging with her on Twitter until something really big happens that requires a major distraction. Maybe the Mueller report will do it.
