In other news, CBS News reports that Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) has decided to run for president in 2020. An official announcement is expected later this month.

Meanwhile, a POLITICO/Morning Consult poll found that only 33 percent of respondents blame Democrats for the government shutdown while 47 percent blame Trump.

Finally, Steve King says white supremacy is actually good.

“White nationalist, white supremacist, Western civilization — how did that language become offensive?” Mr. King said. “Why did I sit in classes teaching me about the merits of our history and our civilization?”

    Hint: It is the “supremacist” part.
    Note to Steve King ( “he goin’ rogue”), please see the Declaration of Independence penned by one Thomas Jefferson.
    “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…..”
    If Rep. Steve King (“he goin’ rogue”) is unfamiliar with what many consider to be one of the fundamental precepts of “western civilization” he can see the text of this documents at the website for the National Archives as soon as his “Supreme” Leader, clearly the pinnacle of “western civilization”, gets over his indictment blues and decides he would like to let government “of the people, by the people,for the people” do what is in the interest of the country as opposed to himself or the gop political posturing.

    only 33 percent of respondents blame Democrats for the government shutdown while 47 percent blame Trump.

    Dec 11: “I will be the one to shut it down. I’m not going to blame you for it.”
    Dec 21: “The Democrats now own the shutdown!”

    33% of the population, apparently: Well if Trump says it, it must be true! Stupid libtards shutting down the government!

      What’d you expect? Self-contradiction (sometimes within a single sentence) is the only thing Trump does well.

      “When during the campaign I would say, ‘Mexico’s going to pay for it,’ obviously I never said this…”
      — Trump

      “And they don’t come in at the checkpoints, which they do also.”
      — Trump
