The gov is shut down and President Trump stayed in Washington ready to negotiate an end to the shut down. But what are democrats doing?

Pelosi goes to Hawaii and stays at a hugely expensive resort.

Other democrats go to PR and hob nob with lobbyist and call girls. But they got caught.

Time for democrats to come to the table and end the shut down. They have to realize they will NOT totally get their way.

They have been getting their way for decades - what makes you think that allowing Trump to claim to have kept a campaign would change that?

What do you get out of creating threads that are based on lies and deception?

Last I heard, Trump stormed out of the negotiations like the petulant child he is. When that's all you've got to work with, might as well go on vacation. :shrug:

Poll: a majority of Americans do not believe Trump is fit to be president

A majority of American voters do not believe that Donald Trump is fit to serve as president, according to a new poll from Quinnipiac University.

The poll found that 56 percent of voters surveyed do not believe Trump is “fit to serve as president,” compared to 42 percent who do think he’s fit to serve. And 57 percent disapprove of the job he is doing as president, while only 36 percent of respondents approve. But the party divide is stark: The poll found that 94 percent of Democrats think that Trump is not fit to serve, and 84 percent of Republicans believe he is.

Breakdowns by race and gender were similarly stark. According to the poll, “Men are divided 49 - 49 percent” over Trump’s fitness to serve, but 63 percent of women think he is not fit.

Among white voters surveyed, a slim majority believe he is unfit to serve, 50 to 48 percent
Most Hispanic voters say he is unfit, 60 to 40 percent
Among black voters, he is widely viewed as unfit to serve, 94 to 4 percent
The poll asked about Trump’s handling of race relations as well, and found that the majority of Americans — 62 percent to 32 percent — disapprove of how Trump is handling race relations. “Disapproval is 55 - 39 percent among white voters, 95 - 3 percent among black voters and 66 - 28 percent among Hispanic voters.” It also found that a majority, 60 to 35 percent, say he is doing more to divide the country than to unite it.

If Trump wanted a wall he woulda gotten it when he had a Republican Congress.

What he's really doing is the Sean Hannity Rush Limbaugh thing. Waiting for democrats to have some power and then throwing a tantrum about something. You know, the manly thing to do.

I think there's a little movement. SOME Dems are breaking ranks, which isn't easy to do, knowing Pelosi will get revenge sooner rather than later.

Do these Dems have names or are things not that specific yet?

He did not "storm" out. When the old *itch Pelosi said she would not compromise, he simply got up and left.

Throwing out the whole Pelosi in Hawaii thing is a red herring and you know it.

She was in Hawaii before she became speaker of the house and before the house re-convened. There was absolutely nothing could do while she was away. But, don't let the facts stop you from trying to make an inane and inflammatory talking point...

It is apparent you are not up on current events. There is pictures all over the news about what you have in red.

Pelosi was in Hawaii over the Christmas holiday. Before she ever became Speaker and before the Ds took over the House. She was in DC the same weekend Trump complained about being in DC.

Politicians were not with call girls unless you are trying to say some older woman in a bikini is a call girl.

Some, like Trump, lie like children- easily, often and not caring how bald-faced they're being.
