The shutdown is going to get more painful as it continues. Lots of conservatives had said they haven’t seen any signs of the shutdown affecting them. Only the most willfully naive will continue to say that as the shutdown continues. Ever longer lines at airports, etc will start to become more noticeable. Economically, things will become more noticeable.

But the President has to see this through.

No Democrats will attend a lunch on Tuesday with President Trump designed to reach an agreement to end the government shutdown and fund a border wall, the White House said.

Trump had invited several moderate House Democrats to the White House in an effort to undermine Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who has refused to grant Trump his demand for $5.7 billion in wall funding. But the group turned down the invitation.

Barack Obama said goodbye to the White House two years ago -- but thanks to an army of activist judges, he never really left. In windowless courtrooms across America, Obama's policies live on, despite the fact that so many of them were unconstitutional to begin with! Meet the judicial #Resistance -- a bigger threat to Donald Trump's presidency, David French fears, than Democrats themselves.
