Last Thursday, The Dealmaker in Chief got absolutely spanked by Democrats on the debt ceiling. And he loved it! Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan had hoped to twist Democratic arms until they agreed to raise the debt ceiling for 18 months.

“No, Donald!” they hissed! “We have to push this out past the 2018 midterms. Those Freedom Caucus loons never sign off without a massive hissy fit and bedshitting. We can’t let people see that right before they vote! You have to focus!”

But just at that moment, Ivanka wandered in and the old man got distracted. You know, if he wasn’t her father, perhaps he’d be dating her!

Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi have been at this a long time.

“How about three months, so we can browbeat you guys with this issue for the rest of the year?” they said.

And before Paul Ryan could P90X him into submission, Donald Trump shouted, “DEAL!”

Check out old Yertle’s face!

Blissfully unaware of what he’d done, Donald Trump rolled over for a nice bellyrub from the same reporters who’ve done nothing but whack him across the snout for months. From The Hill,

Schumer also detailed the phone call he received from Trump after the deal, praising the positive media coverage of their meeting.

“I got a call early this morning,” Schumer recalled. “He said, ‘This was so great!’ Here’s what he said: ‘Do you watch Fox News?’ I said, ‘Not really.’ ‘They’re praising you!’ Meaning me. But he said, ‘And your stations’ — I guess meaning MSNBC and CNN — ‘are praising me! This is great!’”

LORDY.

Chuck’s “stations” may have been happy, but Republicans in Congress were PISSED. So the White House dispatched the Treasury Secretary to huddle up with the House Republicans and persuade them that it’s actually awesome that they got screwed by a president from their own party. Because who better to wage a charm offensive than Steve Mnuchin, right?

Mr. Irresistible

The whole thing was amazing, but Mnuchin really wowed them with his closing argument.

Vote for the debt ceiling for me.

FOR ME. Win one for the Gipper, and the Gipper is Steve!

Way to read a room, Steve! Sure, a bunch of deficit hawks who actually believe that shit about drowning the government in a bathtub are going to respond to a personal appeal from a Goldman Sachs guy. And your wife would still love you if you lost all your money tomorrow.

SURVEY SAYS:

Rep. Ryan Costello (R-Pa.), via The Hill

About as well received as his wife’s Instagram post.

Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.), via Bloomberg

The comments from the Treasury secretary today were not helpful. I found them to be intellectually insulting.

Rep. Ted Yoho (R-Fl.), via CNN

You know what, unfortunately you don’t get voted in or voted out and you can’t vote for me.

Random pissed off Republican Congressman, via The Hill

It was a very arrogant lecture that turned off more of the conference. I’m less sold than when I walked into the meeting.

Well-played, Steve!

Does Mnuchin have a plan to get a better deal from Democrats in December? NOPE. Will Trump get rolled again because Chuck Schumer is the tough but loving father figure little Donny always wanted? YEAH, PROBABLY. Has Mnuchin burnt his bridges with the House Freedom Caucus? YUP.

Mnuchin sealed the deal by leaving for another appointment while there was still a line of Congressmen waiting to speak to him. Because he is comically bad at his job. The bill passed with help from Democrats after 90 Republicans decided not to vote for Steve. Turns out that dissing people after asking them to eat a shit sandwich is a losing political strategy! Go know!

    Checking in here from Savannah. We had 25 mph sustained wind with higher gusts. Moderate to heavy rainfall. I still have power. It’s not over yet, but it is weakening.

    • Marion in Savannah

      Same here. Wet as hell, but looking out at the street all I’m seeing is some tiny twigs and lots of leaves. It may be different in other areas of town, but so far we’re doing well. I think a friend of ours has lost power, because I know she stayed in town and there’s no answer on her land line, which goes out if the power goes out, which it does more in her area than where we are. (She’s 88 and doesn’t have a cell phone.)

    • Dutchman

      Here just north of the ATL we’re getting moderate winds and rain. Hoping it continues to downgrade. Ms. Dutchman is a bit freaked out.

    Ok, can anyone here explain to me what the deal to raise the debt ceiling for three months really means and how this is a win for the Dems? Usually I pretty well understand US politics but I cannot wrap my head around this one.

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      It keeps a contentious vote (and in fact probably 2 more, bc the Dems are going to do this again) in the news ahead of the midterms. The Republicans wanted their ratfucking hidden until after the 2018 poll.

      • dshwa

        It also keeps republicans busy fighting this fight again amongst tthemselves, instead of getting involved in god knows what other fuckery they can dream of.

    • Beanz&Berryz

      My take: Debt ceiling is overall dumb, because even though the gov spent money like Congress said it should by the budget, Congress needs to separately allow the gov to borrow the money it’s spending. That’s the debt ceiling vote. THe win for Dems is that the Freedumb Cacas are lunatics who threaten the world economy with each debt ceiling vote. Another vote in 3 months shows the US voters what lunatics the Republicans are, and how they can’t govern for shit. Oh, and the world economy might get blown up, also too.

    • hudson

      roughly, from what i understand, and i may be completely wrong, the entire credo of US hinges from its currency. Presently it is the de-facto standard world wide. But this derives from US being able to service all its debts. but that is a big promise, and servicing debts also taxes the US internally. The conflict is between figuring out internal problems and retaining a global leadership position.

      again i may be wrong.

    • Rebel Scum with permit

      It forces the Republicans back to the negotiating table over DACA, disaster relief funds, tax “reform” and ACA implementation money. Because of their freedumb caucus crazies, the sane Republicans left are forced to negotiate with Democrats to keep the government operating, or face a disaster in time for the 2018 election cycle.

      • Robbertjan Brandenburg

        AH thanks ok, with the other answers below I think I roughly understand it. Still wouldn’t want a pop quiz on it though.

        • You do. It’s nonsense and pure political crap. (Authorizing money to cover what we’ve already spent).

          It was never an issue until the teabaggers came along.

    • BearLeft

      Repugnicans want to put this off until after the mid-term elections, so they won’t have to show their hand (i.e., a budget that includes yet more tax breaks for the wealthy and used ass-wipes for working people) before asking the people they’re fucking to vote for them again. Who knew?

    • eastcoastlib

      Dems want to force a Friday night sissy fight between the Freedum Caucus and the Republican leadership right before the midterms

    • bbayliss

      The debt ceiling was established in 1917 as a measure to quickly sell liberty bonds in order to fund WW1.
      In the past it was routinely passed to cover debt already incurred, then the republicans discovered it contained the word debt (bad) knew no one understood it, and that the threat of not passing it (dire economic consequences) could be used as a cudgel to advance their nefarious ends.
      A short time frame means republicans will have to reveal their evil scheme prior to the mid-terms.
      It also means Democrats can turn the table and insist on concessions on health care, immigration, and spending, using the threat of not raising the debt ceiling as leverage.
      Goose, meet gander.

    • Alan

      It’s a dance they do because nobody in the US pays any fucking taxes to pay for anything.

    gosh I wonder why the teahadis don’t trust Mnuchin?

    “Mnuchin also has professional ties to George Soros, the billionaire financier who’s contributed tens of millions of dollars to Democratic political causes over the years, including $7 million this election cycle to Priorities USA Action, a pro-Clinton super PAC.

    From 2003 to 2004, Mnuchin worked as chief executive of SFM Capital Management, which the Wall Street Journal reports is backed by Soros. He also worked for Soros Fund Management LLC, according to Bloomberg.”

    yeah that’s the guy to send to impress the crazies in congress, a jew from NY who’s been a democrat all his life. at least you could have dressed him up in camo and had him hand out free chewing tobacco to all the tea partiers

      That’s the reason a majority here in WV make us a red state.

    • Oy. They have also donated millions of ameroes to Republicans. Party is nothing to them and nor are they expected to hold any allegiance.

    You know, to achieve a bit of simplicity in a complicated world, I just think of his last name as Munchkin rather than learn how to actually pronounce it.

    Donnie, imagine how popular you would be if you did more good and less evil.

  • gratuitous

    Holy shit, Rep. Brat actually claimed he was intellectually insulted by Mnuchin? Such a thing is not possible. Science fact!

  • Alternative Dog

    Am I the only one who sees a picture of Mnuchin and thinks Evil Ned Ryerson?

    As I said Friday, oh, yes, YES DONNIE! PLEASE, DO IT AGAIN! And AGAIN!

    And we’ll see how long it takes for Ryan to let the Bill of Impeachment come to the floor.

    And $5F, you keep misspelling that Caucus as the “Freedom Caucus” The correct spelling is “seditious neoConfederate Caucus”.

      to paraphrase james bond,” they’re not interested in anyone’s freedom.”

  • norcalOG

    In order to better evaluate the meeting , I need more specific data on what Mnuchin was wearing. Really, where did he get those yummy glasses? Shoes by? Love the tie! Dish, please.

  • Pancakes please!

    Every time Mnuchin opens his mouth it reminds me it Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun video.

      Won’t you come? Won’t you come.

        Aaaaah! Thanks for that visual.

        • phoenix00

          Glad to be of service.

  • Rep. Dave Brat (R-Va.), via Bloomberg

    The comments from the Treasury secretary today were not helpful. I found them to be intellectually insulting.

    Considering the source, that had to be one HELL of an insult.
    Brat isn’t actually what you might call intellectual. Or insultable.

    • Delu

      Shorter translation: Republicans had a butthurt over Trump and expressed that butthurt over Mnuchin because he said equally butthurty things to them according to them.

  • Viktor

    His official picture looks like he took it himself with his phone.

    • HazooToo

      For an awkward dating site

  • Delu

    Well!

    Who knew that all of Trump’s hired picks are just as YOOOGE!!! at the Art of the Deal as he is!

  • CovfefeOfTheThoughtlessMind

    To me, mark me now, Mnuchin looks like a munchkin with acromegley. Or the spawn of a gibbon who mated with an owl.

  • thr5

    Do it for me….

    I thought spanking was only for Dems ?
    God’s watching, ALL THE TIME.
    In the photo, Ryan looks frozen in a posture that says, ” I’m trying to act nonchalant.” But the perfect arm placement ? It says, ” Even I’m 😨, now. “

  • Moar Wordz

    Ivanka has a frozen smile in that Youtube video…
