Trump Says Our Country Needs A Shutdown; This Congressman’s Response Shuts Him Up Brilliantly

Earlier today, Donald Trump went on one of his delusional rants on Twitter to suggest that the government needs ‘a good shutdown’ in September. Normally, presidents do not desire a government to temporary stop functioning–but then again, Trump isn’t a normal/sane president.

Trump tweets:

“The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicans and Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there! We….”

He continues:

“[we] either elect more Republican Senators in 2018 or change the rules now to 51%. Our country needs a good “shutdown” in September to fix mess!”


It’s hard to believe that any type of shutdown would ever be considered a ‘good’ thing. A shutdown essentially means that many of the services provided to citizens would not be accessible. Trump constantly uses his 140 Twitter characters to manipulate and ultimately–scare the living daylights out of America. Congressman Eric Swalwell understands Trump’s cynical motive here, so he responds to the so-called president in the most epic way:

Not only is the congressman trolling Trump, but he is hinting that House Democrats may be planning to file articles of impeachment against good old Donald. Certainly, that all depends on whether or not the ongoing investigations by the FBI and the House and Senate Intelligence Committee produce impeachable evidence– the likeliness of that happening is very high. It’s only a matter of time until Trump gets the boot from Democrats and more importantly, America.
