Politicians, reporters, and Twitter just teamed up to savagely humiliate Trump over shutdown defeat

This afternoon, President Trump was brought to his knees by the threats of a work stoppage by America’s air traffic controllers and flight attendants, forcing him to agree to a three-week temporary re-opening of the government, which was the same deal that had been offered at the beginning of this preposterous debacle.

Now thanks to the President, millions of contractors have missed an entire month of pay that they’ll never get back while hundreds of thousands more federal workers have been forced to work unpaid and burdened with the knowledge they have no idea when their next paycheck might come, with no way to put food on their table or pay their bills.

On top of that, the nation’s food supply and air traffic have been put at serious risk while our national parks have been devastated by the appalling behavior of unsupervised visitors, among a dozen other petty insults, injuries, and inconveniences our nation has had to suffer thanks to the president’s selfish obstinance.

Here’s a selection of the best responses.

From Senators, Representatives, and reporters:
