By noon Friday, the media had already seen a full day of stories, including Roger Stone’s raid by the FBI, his indictment by Robert Mueller, that indictment’s implication of Steve Bannon, and a deal reached between Trump and Democrats in a desperate attempt to distract us all from the stuff listed above.
Trump totally gave in after a month of fighting and forcing federal employees to work for free, and he got absolutely nothing out of it. Democrats in power played hardball with the president, who continued to call their bluff for over a month.

After Trump’s WH lawn announcement, Democrats held their own press conference in which Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer laid down the law for the president. Nancy held her own, but Chuck Schumer was especially brazen in taunting the president to close the government again.
“Hopefully it means a lesson learned for the white house and for many of our republican COLLEAGUES. Shutting down the government over a policy difference is self-defeating.”
“It accomplishes NOTHING but pain and suffering for the country, and INCURS an enormous political cost to the party shutting it down.”
“We cannot, cannot ever hold American worker hostage again.”
