Will somebody please tell this genius Republican congressman, that his party controlled everything for two years and that they shutdown the government.
In an alternate universe where Republicans still held the House, the government would be open, federal workers would have their paychecks, and Border Patrol would have the funding and tools they need.
Just something to think about.

Some of the responses to Dan Crenshaw’s ‘alternate universe’ tweet are instant classics. Let’s just say—the replies make it abundantly clear that Republicans and Trump own their shutdown in this universe or any other universe.
You seem pretty bad at thinking

You were doing so well on SNL. This actual governing thing is proving difficult for you, isn't it?

Hey man, out of curiosity, who controlled the House when the shutdown started?
— Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) January 11, 2019
the government had three shutdowns last year when Republicans had the majority, so

The unified R government did shut down though. It was only last month

Um, that wasn't an alternate universe. That was last month.
Oh wait …

I just picked a few of my favorite replies here, but the hilarity goes on and on. If you have some downtime and want even more hearty laughs, read some of the many thousands of replies to this all-time backfire by Crenshaw.
Dan Crenshaw reminds me of the disaster named Paul Ryan. Remember when the pundits and media were quick to annoint Ryan the next savior of the GOP and then Ryan ended up being a complete failure? The media is at the ready again to annoint Crenshaw. Just google ‘rising star Dan Crenshaw’ and you’ll find plenty of Ryan-esque babble about him.
The truth is, Dan Crenshaw is just another vacuous Republican politician. When a politician can’t recognize his own party shutdown the government, as in this case, or is willfully gaslighting—you know he’s at the ready to enable and rubber stamp Trump.
Ryan Crenshaw stands for nothing and will be another failed wonder boy, but don’t stop the media from trying to tell you different.
