“Meeting with ‘Chuck and Nancy’ today about keeping government open and working,” the president wrote on Twitter. “Problem is they want illegal immigrants flooding into our Country unchecked, are weak on Crime and want to substantially RAISE Taxes. I don’t see a deal!”

What is it that you think this president actually can offer? It's nothing more than one of his "love fests" where people say how thankful they are that he is president. Easy to skip, especially after being publicly denigrated. Trump said he wouldn't deal with them. Is that what you call negotiating? What's the point?

Yes. He said there was no point. Never mind his distortions.
He didn't say that he wouldn't work with them, what he said was that he doesn't a deal being made due to their desires to keep pushing policies that are counter productive.
A no show means you just don't show up. I means that you don't say anything. That's not what they did. They declined the invitation quite publicly. Had I been in their position I could well have felt compelled to do the same.
Would you have gone and tried to find compromise, or would you have just been a no-show?
Yeah. After the host told them there was no point in showing up.
So, a meeting, which was fairly important, end of the year spending bill, and they decide not to show up?
Yeah. He is pretty petulant isn't he. Stamps his feet and calls people names...
Bunch of petulant children, instead of adults.
