George Conway, who is married to senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway, says GOP senators share the blame for the government shutdown because they “took the idiot down the street seriously.” Ahem, “the idiot down the street” is Donald Trump.

Conway tweeted:  “No, it’s the fault of all of you for taking the idiot down the street seriously for even a nanosecond. You all bear responsibility, and you should accept it, and now take charge.”

Conway was responding to a tweet about Republican senators unloading on VP Mike Pence during a luncheon. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was also quoted as saying shutdowns don’t work and that the Trump shutdown was a bad idea.
