Hell Freezes Over=> Liberal Media Correctly Blames Democrats For #SchumerShutdown

As the saying goes, “a broken clock is right twice a day.” Liberal media outlets, such as the New York Times and Bloomberg are blaming Senate Democrats for the government shutdown. 

Daily Caller reports:

“U.S. Shutdown Starts as Senate Democrats Block GOP Funding Plan” a Bloomberg headline blared early Saturday morning, referring to the Senate’s inability to agree on a variety of budgetary issues. The New York Times and AP chimed in with similar headlines.

Republican and Democratic leaders have not stopped talking through their differences. Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, for instance, said late Friday night that the conflict has a “really good chance” of being resolved before the weekend concludes. […]

Media outlets, meanwhile, painted the issue in harsh tones for the Democrats — one NYT headline declared: “Senate Democrat Block Bill to Keep Government Open Past Midnight, Shutdown Looms,” while the AP simply noted that, “Senate Democrats derail bill to avert shutdown.”

As previously reported by The Gateway Pundit‘s Kristinn Taylor, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a blistering statement late Friday night on Senate Democrats blocking funding the federal government in favor of amnesty for DACA recipients.


White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ statement reads:

Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown. Tonight, they put politics above our national security, military families, vulnerable children, and our country’s ability to serve all Americans. We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands. This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators. When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform. During this politically manufactured Schumer Shutdown, the President and his Administration will fight for and protect the American people.”

On Saturday, Sanders, once again slapping Senate Democrats for shutting down the federal government, tweeted, “One year into the Trump presidency, Democrats can’t shut down the booming Trump economy so they shut down the government instead. This is the behavior of obstructionist losers, not legislators. Do your job Democrats: fund our military and reopen our government.”
