The House of Representatives passed a short term funding bill on Thursday that faces an unknown fate in the Senate. Democrat Jerrold Nadler, who voted “no” on passage, didn’t appear to be expecting to be challenged on his later insistence that he didn’t want a government shutdown.
Oh man. Another instant classic.

Spin like the wind, Rep. Nadler!
Maybe he only voted not to keep it open #bigdifference

I say it all the time… Democrats aren't used to having their feed held to the fire like this by the press, so when it happens, they have no idea how to act https://t.co/e6uZ38JnHV
