Trump Official Brags About ‘Being The One Responsible’ For The Gov. Shutdown: It’s ‘Kind Of Cool’

As the government shutdown affects hundreds of thousands of government workers and countless citizens who rely on government services, some Trump administration officials seem to be enjoying the current situation, particularly, Mick Mulvaney, director of The Office of Management and Budget, who proudly bragged about being the one responsible for the government shut down.

“I found out for the first time last night that the person who technically shuts down the government down is me, which is kind of cool,” Mulvaney said in a Friday radio interview with conservative commentator Sean Hannity, according to Media Matters for America.

Here’s Mulvaney’s full exchange with Hannity:

Sean Hannity (host): All of the important aspects involving the government continue, and those people that are furloughed usually get their money back, because Congress will give them back pay and a free vacation.

Mick Mulvaney: Yeah, I mean, here’s — here’s how I explained it to people. I explained it this — obviously, I’m — the reason that, obviously, I’m heavily involved in this, Sean, is that the Office of Management and Budget is charged with, you know, sort-of implementing running a shutdown.

In fact, I found out for the first time last night that the person who technically shuts the government down is me, which is kind of cool.

Listen below:

The federal government shut down at 12:01 am on Saturday morning as Republicans and Democrats remain stuck in a standoff after failing to reach a deal to fund the government. The Office of Management and Budget, which Mulvaney helms, is in charge of implementing and running the shutdown, and, apparently, Mulvaney is enjoying his newly-discovered power to screw the American people.
