The game of Chicken between President Trump and Chuck Schumer has come to an end. And it was Schumer who veered out of the way to avoid getting mowed down.
Trust me, the Democrats aren’t used to losing a game of Chicken to a Republican.
But then again, they still don’t realize that Donald Trump isn’t your typical GOP Gentleman Loser.
Those guys would lose a staring contest in three seconds flat.
Could you imagine if Lindsey Graham was President during this shutdown? By this morning, three million illegals would already be legalized and registered to vote.
But Trump doesn’t like losing. So in a game of Chicken, he won’t be the one to get out of the way.
Had Chuck Schumer actually paid attention during the 2016 election, he would’ve known this shutdown wouldn’t go his way.
But like their water-carriers in the press, Schumer and the Dems still do not get it. Donald Trump won not in spite of his hardline stand on immigration, but because of it.
And I’m guessing the Democrats’ internal polling probably showed what we knew all along: Americans were siding with the President.
But this victory is more important than that.
This embarrassing game of Chicken shows that — for the first time in decades — a Republican won the Narrative War.
Republicans never win the Narrative War.
And that’s why Schumer and the Dems were so certain they’d succeed at hanging this shutdown around Donald Trump’s neck.
But they failed miserably.
The narrative was completely controlled by President Trump.
But not just in calling this the #SchumerShutdown.
No. Trump went much further than that. He successfully labeled this shutdown as Democrats choosing illegal aliens over American citizens.
And because of that, losing this game of Chicken isn’t just a minor setback for Chuck Schumer and the Democrats.
They went all-in for non-citizens over Americans. And now, no matter what they do, Trump has succeeded in labeling them the Party of Illegals.
Trust me, there will be no shaking that label, ever.
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.

If the GOP Congress and Trump are as politically weak as everyone says, why did the Senate Democrats just completely cave on the shutdown (which the same people said would be devastating for Republicans)?
