CNN’s Jim Acosta has heard it from a friend who heard it from a friend who heard it from another Trump thinks he’s going to be blamed for the shutdown:

Gee, if that’s true where would Trump get that impression?

Why yes — yes it is! At a presser yesterday, Acosta asked Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney, “How can it be the Schumer shutdown when Republicans control the White House, House and Senate?” Mulvaney then gave Acosta a quick Civics 101 lesson in how the Senate works.

If Acosta wants to know a reason why Trump might think people will try and blame him for the shutdown he should just go look in a mirror.
