When it came to the government shutdown and the border wall, Donald Trump said we would never cave.
You know the rest of the story. Trump folded like a lawn chair and basically shut the government down for 36 days for nothing. It cost government workers money and hardship.
While the right wing media even piled on Trump for caving, Sean Hannity is sticking by his love’s side.
Trump calls Hannity on a daily basis and sometimes serval times a day. Some people inside Fox News say that Trump is not running the country, “Sean Hannity is.”
Let that sink in for a bit.
HuffPo writes that Hannity insisted that Trump still “holds all the cards” when it comes to negotiating with Congress for the wall.
Hannity claimed that Trump would simply declare a national emergency to obtain the funds if he couldn’t seal a deal for the wall with Congress during the next three weeks that the government is reopened.
“Anyone out there, by the way, thinking President Trump caved today, you don’t really know the Donald Trump I know,” Hannity claimed in the clip shared online by Media Matters. “He will secure the border, one way or another.”
I’m not sure anyone knows the Donald Trump that Hannity knows and I’m thinking that most people are more than grateful for that.
