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:
Trump is telling allies Democrats caused the shutdown but that he will be blamed, a source close to the White House confirms to CNN.

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.
“A source.” His questioning during these briefings are laughable.

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.
