The current state of affairs in Washington DC has been weighing on the minds of some of the beltway’s most outspoken voices, and the people who are represented by them.

Where the President once seemed to be backed by his base unwaveringly, cracks are beginning to show.  We The People are no longer seeing the upside to this uncompromising charade being played by both sides, and have turned angry.

Protests are rocking Washington as we speak, with furloughed federal workers descending upon the White House to voice their complaints.

Now, in language that could certainly stoke these rabble rousers, several Washington regulars are going even further, disparaging Donald Trump and warning of tyranny on the horizon.

Friday on MSNBC’s “Deadline,” former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan said President Donald Trump lacked the “gene of empathy.”

He went on to reference the government shutdown and say that it did not bother him.

Brennan said, “I think Donald Trump has been reaching into the authoritarian’s toolbox for quite some time in terms of delegitimizing the press, undermining the institutions of government, trying to corrupt and control the institutions of law enforcement and intelligence. So his opting for this right now I think is just very typical of him. And he’s again fabricating—that leads to real crises, crisis of confidence in the government, crisis of confidence among federal workers. The fact 40 percent of the federal civil workforce is now furloughed, some of them working without pay, but many are not working at all. And how much lost productivity is there? And all of those contracts and other people.”

Brennan wasn’t the only one, either.

On Friday’s broadcast of CNN’s “New Day,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said Republicans have used government shutdowns to get their way and “That’s not democracy. That’s dictatorship.”

Hoyer said, “[T]he real problem here is, the president is using what Republicans have done before. They did it for the Affordable Care Act. They did it under Bill Clinton when he refused to cut education as much as they wanted to. They’ve used shutting down government, taking government employees hostage, and taking people who rely on government on a daily basis hostage to get their way. That’s not democracy. That’s dictatorship.”

With nearly one million Americans being asked to work without pay, all of whom missed a paycheck yesterday, time is of the essence in Washington DC.  Should the shutdown last much longer, all Hell could break loose on the President’s doorstep.

Confirmed: Mitt Romney Used Secret Twitter Account to Defend Himself From President Trump

What in the world?

Is Mitt Romney in junior high? What kind of grown man uses a secret Twitter account? Of course, Romney probably doesn’t tweet himself but this means he had a proxy do it for him. Same difference. It would appear as if Mitt is still pretty sore from losing the 2012 presidential election to Barack Obama, which he should’ve easily won. In that regard, he’s a lot like Hillary Clinton. Why the guy keeps going against President Trump in a time when the radically far-left media and Congressional Democrats won’t lay off makes little sense. But, that’s not about to trip up the Utah senator anytime soon. From Daily Wire: During an interview with The Atlantic, Romney made the revelation that he had a secret Twitter account: “That’s kind of what he does,” Romney said with a shrug, and then got up to retrieve an iPad from his desk. He explained that he uses a secret Twitter account—“What do they call me, a lurker?”—to keep tabs on the political conversation. “I won’t give you the name of it,” he said [emphasis added], but “I’m following 668 people.” Swiping at his tablet, he recited some of the accounts he follows, including journalists, late-night comedians (“What’s his name, the big redhead from Boston?”), and athletes. Trump was not among them. “He tweets so much,” Romney said, comparing the president to one of his nieces who overshares on Instagram. “I love her, but it’s like, ah, it’s too much.” Romney confirmed the fake account was his: Just spoke to @MittRomney on the phone, and asked him about Pierre Delecto. His only response: “C’est moi.” Updated my story accordingly: https://twitter.com/mckaycoppins/status/1186093210214510593?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1186093210214510593&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fa-total-loser-romney-mocked-after-using-secret-twitter-account-to-defend-himself-report-suggests Former conservative Bill Kristol posed a question on Twitter… Let’s see how much of a hellscape Twitter is.

‘Well-Connected’ Republican Tells Fox News Host There’s 20% Chance GOP Senate Removes Trump

Seems awfully high…

Fox News’ host Chris Wallace isn’t exactly “in the bag” for President Trump. Wallace has been against 45 for a good while now. On Sunday, he made a big announcement that many people may find unsettling. Apparently, a big-name Republican – who, of course, shall remain nameless – told Wallace that there’s a decent chance the GOP-controlled Senate could potentially move to impeach Trump. If true, why? Why would the GOP do such a silly, silly thing and give the left a win in a time when unemployment is at record lows and the economy is doing well? Here’s Chris… From Washington Examiner: Fox News host Chris Wallace said he was told by a well-known GOP source that there is a 1-in-5 chance President Trump will be removed from office if the Senate holds an impeachment trial. The figure came up during a conversation with acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney on Fox News Sunday as the two discussed the controversies the Trump administration faces related to Ukraine and Syria. Wallace said, “I talked to a very well-connected Republican in Washington this week, somebody whose name you would know well, who says that if the House votes to impeach and it gets to a trial in the Senate, there is now a 20% chance he believes — obviously, it’s just an estimate — now a 20% chance enough Republicans will vote with the Democrats to remove the president.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4Zjtcml7lU BREAKING: New leaked video from inside CNN: President Jeff Zucker tells employees to push “impeachment” and that all of CNN’s stories should be about “moves towards impeachment” One of CNN’s employees says Zucker has a “personal vendetta against Trump” https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1183780647522856960?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1183780647522856960&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.weaselzippers.us%2F435181-project-veritas-video-cnns-jeff-zucker-directing-employees-to-push-impeachment%2F WATCH: Nancy Pelosi compares Democrats’ impeachment inquiry to the American Revolution War https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1184922572246274048?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1184922572246274048&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fdougp-3137%2F2019%2F10%2F17%2Fcome-on-nancy-pelosi-compares-dems-impeachment-threats-to-the-american-revolution%2F Reaction: The revolutionary war was fought…
