Trump Watch August 20 2017

Day 204:

Not A Good Person:

In case you didn’t know already, Trump is not a good person. He is a very bad person, an immoral out of touch monster. He cares about only himself, and would gladly watch the world burn if it meant he could go on being the spoiled man baby that he is.

The best way to tell him to fuck off?  Get a progressive house and senate by voting for real progressives who will fight for the issues that matter most to us.

Day 202:

Like Rats From A Sinking Trash Barge:

Trumps turd of a presidency is swirling around the drain.   I think strategically it would be best to leave him in office and run progressive house and senate candidates with a starkly different message than his.  But I have to admit it seems Trump is heading to a disgraceful resignation/jail sentence.

Could that be why just about everyone has suddenly “seen the light” and is resigning?

Day 200:

You can’t be a Nazi and a Patriot:

Just so you know, the Nazi’s, the south in the civil war, these people are the opposite of Americans. They stand for everything that we fight against.  You can’t be both, its just that simple.  If you think the Nazi’s or the South had the right idea, you are not an American Patriot.  You have the right to believe whatever you want, but you don’t stand for what this country was funded on.

Or to put it another way, fuck you and fuck your ideology.

These people are morally and mentally bankrupt.  Now is the time to counter attack with out best vision for the future.  Now is the time to introduce universal health care, raise the minimum wage, really go out there and present OUR vision of the future.

Our vision will win elections, but only if we run candidates who truly believe in a better future.
