Don't Hold Yer Breath

White House Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney is hosting a group of bipartisan lawmakers at Camp David this weekend.

I think it's a fool's errand. As the recent past has shown, there is nobody in the Administration who has the power to negotiate things other than Trump. Mulvaney can reach a deal on anything and Trump can blow up hundreds of hours of negotiations with a single tweet. Or maybe a deal will be announced, but then Trump will watch the unelectable bloviators on Fox and blow things up because they said disapproving things.

But this is what happens when the president is an insecure, mercurial and narcissistic sociopath.

Since reports suggest up to 10% of the TSA still hasn’t gotten any pay, I’d suggest a new shutdown might end quite a bit quicker. With the OPM Shutdown/Excepted employee ruling, they’ll call in sick.
