"Trump might veto spending bill!", "Government shutdown possible"screamed the talking heads on any and all cable news shows. "Bullshit!" was my first thought. All Trump has to do to get attention is hint he may do something controversial, and all the cable news shows hyperventilate. Trump may be a clueless President, but he knows how to manipulate the media, who wait with baited breath (what does that mean, you swallowed a fishing lure-laced sub sandwich?) for him to utter a word, any word at all), and they spill their coffee in excitement (they don't get out much, apparently) in their haste to 'breaking news' it. Anybody who thinks about it would realize if he did that, after both houses of Congress agreed to it, the blame couldn't be shifted to anyone else, like he wants to do (NOTHING'S ever his fault, ever!) and he'd own it, and there was never any chance of that. So, everyone who believed the was ever a chance of him vetoing the bill, how does it feel to be played like a hypochondriac fiddle by him and the media?
