This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 83

Trump Watch:

The scandal that just wont stop.  Russia and Trump.  Now it seems the FBI got a warrant to monitor Carter Page.  Trumps former adviser.  This guy is a real piece of work, and dumb as rocks.  Can we just get this over with and throw the lot of them in jail already.  They are clearly breaking several corruption laws as we speak, the rest of whatever shakes out in the investigation will just be icing on the impeachment cake.

Besty DeVos just undid Obama era student loan protections…because she wants to destroy education.  Just like the head of the EPA wants to destroy the environment.  And Rex Tillerson is destroying the state department.  Jeff Sessions is destroying the justice department. We have allowed the worst people to be in charge of things.

People are still giving republicans hell at town halls, the latest is Joe Wilson you might remember him as the jackass that was so racist he couldn’t keep from screaming “you lied” at Obama during a state of the union, back when things like that were shocking.  How far we have fallen in the era of the pussy grabber.  Paul Ryan would get the business as well, but he is avoiding town halls, by going to theme parks.

Trump’s modeling agency to shut down after exploiting illegal immigrants.  Basically anything Trump says, he is doing the opposite.

North Carolina bill looks to ban gay marriage…seriously we need to get some councilors into that state house.  No one is this angry at LGBT people who is not deeply closeted.  This has all the earmarks of someone who is very gay trying very hard to push that fact deep down until is burns into hatred.  Its ok, come out, stop being such a dick, we all want you to be happy.  Stop trying to pass laws like this!
