HAH! POTUS Trump Praises “Crazy Jim Acosta” & “Fake News CNN” For Accurate #SchumerShutdown Coverage
President Trump is in rare form Tuesday morning, thanking White House correspondent Jim Acosta and the rest of CNN for its ‘honest’ #SchumerShutdown coverage.
“Even Crazy Jim Acosta of Fake News CNN agrees: “Trump World and WH sources dancing in end zone: Trump wins again…Schumer and Dems caved…gambled and lost.” Thank you for your honesty Jim!” tweeted President Trump.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) announced Monday afternoon that the Senate reached a short-term agreement to end the government shutdown. According to the New York Democrat, negotiations on DACA will be taken up before the next scheduled shutdown on February 8th.
Progressives are furious with the move, as lawmakers, media figures and activists alike are scratching their heads over the Democrats’ surrender.
Liberal activists are furious with Democratic senators after most of them agreed to reopen the federal government without a firm path to shielding young immigrants from deportation.
As the third day of the shutdown dawned, liberal advocates and immigration groups fired off a joint statement blasting as “unacceptable” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s offer merely to hold a vote on immigration — with no promises for action from the House or White House — in exchange for Democratic votes to reopen the government. But three hours later, Democratic senators agreed to just those terms — sparking anger on the left. […]
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Monday argued Democrats secured critical assurance for Dreamers, who are at risk for deportation as soon as March after President Donald Trump’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.
The Twitterati weighed in on Schumer’s poor negotiating skills.

This is a good example of the problem of bipartisanship.
In theory, it's a great thing.
In practice, the only thing it involves is ceding to Republican demands in exchange for nothing.

An inescapable fact: Democrats had a lot more to lose from this shutdown — politically speaking — than Republicans.
Why do anything to mess with a double-digit lead on the generic ballot?

I doubted it was possible, but Dems have actually lost a shutdown fight. Schumer has agreed to end the filibuster in exchange for practically nothing. Make no mistake: Schumer & Dems caved. What a political fiasco.

We now await Democrats’ spin about how this isn’t a cave
