be no vote in the senate and joining us on the phone to explain what happens in a partial shutdown is brian silva. brian, good morning. >> good morning, frank. >> are you surprised, it's the president's last ditch effort and he is digging in. >> i'm surprised because i thought they might come up with something to put on the president's desk. they did not do that and therefore we have this quote unquote partial government shutdown. and we will see now over the weekend today primarily and early tomorrow whether something can't be crafted in the shut down sooner than later . >> could be president trump's last stand? the house will turn blue on january the third. he is not going to budge. >> right. democrats see this as an opportunity to reset the
compass as it were and republicans on the other hand who control the senate by the way, as we know still want to exert control. we are in a timing thing there because as you suggest, the new congress takes over in january, early january and if they can hold out as democrats until then they can really stymie the president's efforts here. >> do you see president trump doing this not only to get the wall but to appeal to his face? because he did promise them the wall. and by the weight reelection is coming up in 22 months. >> yes. all of that is true. when you consider the cost of the wall and juxtaposed with the size of the federal bureaucracy, the 5 billion isn't the issue. it is the issue that this is
something donald trump promised his base and if he does not deliver, a lot of his base are going to be very upset with him. so this is, sadly, in washington d.c. tinged with politics. >> politicians don't like to miss holidays. they are in the bunker in d.c. today. >> yeah. >> do they get something done do you think over the weekend? >> i do think they get something done. bear in mind a partial shutdown is not a full shutdown. many americans will not experience a partial shutdown except if they try to go to national parks and things like that. your mail will be delivered and you can fly and tsa will be in place and all of these things will go on. at the same time you are going to have a lot of people who work for the federal government who will be furloughed and others who are deemed essential that will work unpaid. so there is a huge effect here.
>> our last question on ruth bader ginsburg. she had two lumps removed from her lungs and it was successful but she is 85 years old and she had the fault one month back. if she were to step down on the high court what would that do? >> it would give president trump an opportunity to nominate yet another supreme court justice. he has already had two now with corsets and kavanaugh and a third would be nearly unprecedented. ronald reagan had three opportunities for naming supreme court justices. it was start a huge fight again in the senate and once again the president would put up a conservative candidate. at that point, game on. >> so much going on we did not
