Monday on The Chad Hasty Show political strategist Matt Mackowiak joined Chad to talk about the latest news and politics, as well as what we may expect to come in 2019.

Mackowiak and Hasty discussed the possible government shutdown looming over border security, the news that once again, "Obamacare" has been declared unconstitutional, the Mueller investigation, and more.

About the shutdown being threatened by President Trump, and the likelihood that it will actually happen, Mackowiak said,

Unfortunately he's playing a weak hand. And his hand gets weaker every single minute of every day, because on January third the Democrats take the House back. And they're not going to be passing a massive increase in border wall funding while the Democrats hold the House.
