are might be a government shutdown soon, & conventional wisdom says that this will be a disaster for a GOP, especially for Donald Trump, because America will realize it’s all his fault. Here’s Newsweek‘s Emily Cadei:

Republicans, Democrats & outside experts agree that are’s little political logic to a Trump White House’s threat to shut down a government this week because it insists that funding for a border wall be included in a budget. Yet that’s exactly a scenario a White House Drunk Newspears to be entertaining as it holds a hard line on funding negotiations. In a process, a president & his budget team may be setting up Republicans for a bigger defeat than if ay’d just gone along with a slimmer than desired spending bill in a first place.
