Day 187:

The Irony:

These assholes are evil.  By any definition.  They don’t care about others, they are actively working towards hurting them, and for what?  So that rich people can get even richer.  They don’t care if they have to destroy the air the water, or the people, so long as they can make more money.

The problem with these immoral assholes, is that the only true way to beat them, is to be better than them.  We have to gently remove them from office, with votes, and then make the world a better place over their objection, so that everyone can enjoy a better future, even them.

Day 186:

Strategic Distraction:

Are you being investigated for decades of money laundering?  Are you failing at your job?  Did you say a bunch of stupid shit recently?  Might be time for some STRATEGIC DISTRACTION! Throw some red meat to your base, say something horrible, cause a fuss.  Will it work?  No.  Should you do it?  No.  Did you do it anyway?  Fuck yea you did.  Because you’re Donald Trump, and you don’t give a single fuck about anyone but yourself.

Also as an aside, FUCK JOHN McCAIN.  What a fucking waste of air that fucker is.  My last act on the world is not going to be taking health care away from millions, but apparently that is what he wants his to be.
