Mainstream media outlets have been so busy questioning the fitness of President Trump’s doctor that they haven’t really ratcheted up the panic that usually comes with the threat of a government shutdown.
Sure, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who is likely to vote no on a continuing resolution just passed by the House, suggested that people will die, but her heart didn’t really seem in it. Good thing that CNN came along then and floated this possibility:
If Congress fails to avert a government shutdown by its Friday deadline, the popular panda cameras at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington will be turned off.
