After Dems Insist On Amnesty For Illegals, The ‘Holy Grail’ Of Liberalism Just Delivered Them A Devastating Surprise

Donald Trump Blames Chuck Schumer

Democrats are in full panic after they have lost the support of their biggest defenders: the mainstream liberal media. They have counted on the media to carry their water and talking points for decades. They expected nothing less in the continued battle over the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Democrats insist that the government must be shutdown in order for amnesty to be granted to illegal aliens. They believe the American people want this and are ready to fight President Trump and Republicans on this matter. But if how the normally reliable left-wing media is responding, that could not be further from the truth.

The left almost always wins a public relations battle because of their alliance with the media. So it was quite surprising that the White House, which the media hates, actually got the better end of the stick on this one.

The Trump White House has labeled this battle the #SchumerShutdown and to everyone’s surprise – that has stuck:

The New York Times, the holy grail for liberalism, put the blame squarely on the shoulders of the Democrats saying, “Senate Democrats blocked passage of a stopgap spending bill to keep the government open,” in their app on mobile notifications. And that was enough to make Democrats panic. Dan Pfeiffer, a former official in the Obama Administration was not happy about the way this was portrayed:

Clearly upset, Pfeiffer was appalled that the NY Times would dare to question the motives of Democrats. And of course, Twitter ate him alive:

And the Associated Press also went the same direction as the NY Times:

And yet, the left spent much of the day trying to refute these narratives:

And even Slate, a liberal publication, agreed with the NY Times:

“A group of mostly Senate Democrats filibustered a Republican bill to fund the government Friday night, and the government is now officially in a shutdown.

“McConnell believes that the Democrats have made an incredibly stupid move: filibustering a spending bill, none of the contents of which they objected to, in order to secure a deal related to ‘the issue of illegal immigration.’ Though finding a solution for the expiring Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program polls well, a shutdown over the issue does not, and it especially does not in the states where Senate Democrats are most vulnerable.”
