With the partial government shutdown dominating the news cycles during its first week, there was a notably absent politico abstaining from publicly entering the fray.

No, we’re not talking about Nancy Pelosi, who has been partying in Hawaii during the shutdown while the President travels to Iraq to visit the troops.

We are talking instead about Mitch McConnell, whose absence from the public fight over our national border security is raising eyebrows among political observers.

McConnell is home in Kentucky, and the senator’s spokesman, Donald Stewart, said it’s up to President Donald Trump and the Democrats to come up with a deal to end the stalemate over funding for Trump’s border wall.

In other words, in McConnell’s view, it’s not on him.

Still, the sidelines is an unusual place to find the Senate leader with Washington in the throes of a budget breakdown – especially one he was determined to avoid and may have difficulty resolving next week with his Senate Republicans fearful of crossing Trump.

McConnell has made no secret of his distaste for government shutdowns, and just days before it happened he predicted that it would not, telling Capitol Hill reporters that the public doesn’t like shutdowns and “there’s no education in the second kick of a mule.”

The shutdown has been ongoing for 7 days now, as the President refuses to budge on his demand that a border wall be funded in the spending bill necessary to bring the federal megalith back into action.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders has to have skin tougher than a rhino’s. The unbelievable verbal bashings she took from the media, Hollywood elites, and liberal blowhards on Twitter would be more than enough to make anybody want to quit and walk away. But SHS is a different breed, apparently. She’s welcoming the haters with open arms. From Fox News: Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders is expected to announce her candidacy for governor of Arkansas in the 2022 elections on Monday, Fox News has learned.

Washington Post Fact Checker: We Won’t Keep Track of Biden’s Lies Like We Did for Trump

The media: full of objective journalists!

Joe Biden doesn’t lie. He can’t. He’s a Democrat and Democrats do not tell lies. Of course women should be allowed to murder their children in the womb and get away with it! Of course men can claim to be women and there’s nothing wrong with their mental state! That’s how these people think, man. It’s criminally insane. From The Daily Wire: Glenn Kessler, a “fact checker” for The Washington Post, kept track of everything he and a team of deemers deemed to be a lie uttered by President Trump. His final tally of Trump’s “false and misleading statements” – 30,573. CONTINUED: But according to a new report, the Post team won’t be keeping score on President Biden, a Democrat. “Trump’s departure also equals an end to having a false claims project for the current president, as The Post said it does ‘not have plans to launch a Biden database at this time,’” The Daily Caller wrote.
