‘He Has To Be Fired’: Donald Trump Explains Why Donald Trump Is To Blame For Shutdown

"You know the interesting thing is that in 25 years or 50 years, when they talk about the government shutdown, they're gonna be talking about who was the President at that time."

Donald Trump’s past comes back to haunt him all the time.

And no, we’re not talking about Stormy Daniels (who gives a fuck whether Trump hates sharks and likes to be spanked with Forbes magazine?). Rather, we’re talking about things he’s said and done that are actually relevant to his (hopefully brief) tenure as President.

One of the things about not being able to keep your mouth shut is that if you’re a public figure, people will invariably go back and dig up things you’ve said if you should happen to contradict them by word or deed at some point in the future. That goes double if you’re a controversial public figure and it’s magnified even further if you should happen to get yourself elected President.

For instance, if Oprah does indeed end up running against Trump in 2020 (assuming he’s not in prison by then), well then the media is going to have a field day with all of the effusive praise he’s heaped on her over the years.

Well now that the one-year anniversary of Trump’s inauguration is being celebrated with a government shutdown, he is of course doing everything in his power to dispel the notion that it’s his fault. And sure, he’s blaming Democrats but if you think for a second that he cares one way or another about who gets blamed as long as it’s not him, you’re deluding yourself. He doesn’t care anymore about Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell than he does about “Chuck and Nancy” and if it turned out that Mitch did something identifiable that would unequivocally exonerate Trump when it comes to who takes the fall for this shutdown, you can believe #MitchTheMotherfucker would be trending in no time flat.

With all of that in mind, let’s go back in time to 2013 and let Donald Trump the citizen explain how Donald Trump the President should definitely be blamed for being an incompetent moron:


So there he is, on Fox & Friends, asked specifically who gets the blame for a shutdown and here’s what he said in case your ears aren’t working:

You say ‘who gets fired?’ It always has to be the top. I mean problems start from the top and they always have to get solved from the top. You know the President’s the leader and he’s gotta get everybody in a room and he’s gotta lead.

As funny as that most assuredly is, don’t let the real punchline be lost on you. Here it is:

You know the interesting thing is that in 25 years or 50 years, when they talk about the government shutdown, they’re gonna be talking about who was the President at that time. They’re not gonna be talking about who the head of the House was, the head of the Senate.

How great is that? Maybe the best challenger for Trump in 2020 is Trump from 2013. That would be some debate to watch, now wouldn’t it?

  1. yep, he simply says at any given time, whatever he thinks is his best act at that moment – he never really means anything that comes out of his face hole. He is a performer and he thinks he is the best performer to ever serve as president. Hmmmm….

    Only one other thought is about the who cares if he is afraid of sharks or likes to be spanked with magazine, etc. I kinda care and I kinda think those (and more) behaviors are somewhat interesting about anyone and like H says, especially if that someone grows up and gets himself elected as president. He pretends to be such a tough guy and admits to being afraid of sharks — when was he ever in water that would expose him to sharks, pray tell. And being spanked with a magazine with his face on the cover – downright hysterical and not in a good way. So, do we believe he had prostitutes peeing in Russia – hell yes he did.

    Ya know, there are certain character points we expect our president to have … so, name one that he actually has.

  2. This is a hell of a way to spend our first “National Day of Patriotic Devotion”, the new holiday Trump declared at his inauguration. I was looking forward to the barbecue and staying up for the fireworks. Maybe I’ll just curl up with a cup of cocoa and the latest on Trump’s Trollop from “In Touch” magazine. Wait, I’m still getting the barbecue and fireworks?! All good then!!

    • You must have misread that — it is trump’s National Day of Prostitute Devotion.
      You can also just Google his trollups and read all night long!

    Whenever the supposed <<>> ends, an hour from now or 20 days, Trump will claim victory and take credit for it, regardless of the circumstances or outcome.

    But all that is just noise. The Mueller investigation is material.

  4. SNL should script that debate.
