It’s Saturday and President Donald Trump is alone in the White House. Melania is at Mar-a-Lago, and Washington is deserted. So he thought it’d be a good idea to get on Twitter and start whining about how mean the Democrats are being to him for wanting billions of dollars for a wall that he once promised Mexico would pay for:
I am in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come on over and make a deal on Border Security. From what I hear, they are spending so much time on Presidential Harassment that they have little time left for things like stopping crime and our military!

Sounds like something a spoiled seven-year-old would say when he didn’t get his way and was placed in time out.
Here’s the thing: Congressional Democrats have already said they aren’t giving Trump a penny for his stupid wall. And why should they? He’s the one who repeatedly said Mexico would foot the bill. But now he’s holding federal workers hostage so he can save face and get a couple of billion bucks for an unnecessary wall that won’t do a damn bit of good other than making him look like a hero to his fanatical supporters.
Also, what does he mean when he says “stopping crime and the military”? That doesn’t make a bit of sense.
It didn’t take long for others in the Twitterverse to rip into the petulant president:
A real president doesn’t sit around and wait for anything, they work.

I thought you said Mexico was paying for it. Why are you deliberately hurting 800,000 Americans?

It’s shocking to me that the following point is not hammered home as a convincing argument that building a wall on the border with Mexico is a total waste of money … pic.twitter.com/77YUqpAf3x

Poor Trumpie! He wants to be a hero, but he’s too busy being a crybaby.
