Trump Watch May 18 2017

Day 119:

 

They all knew, and they are all guilty:

It is becoming clear that Trump did work with the Russians, either because they bailed his bad investments out and now he owes them a lot of money, or because he was more than happy to be a part of their machinations during the election.

Trump is so stupid, that even if he didn’t do either of these things, he did commit obstruction of justice trying to get Comey to end the investigation, and proved his guilt by later firing Comey and publicly admitting he did so to stop the investigation.

Meanwhile while washington has ground to a halt trying to figure out what to do about Russia and Trump, the problems that were not fixed for the last 30-40 years continue to get worse.

We still don’t have a 15 minimum wage, free college, regulated banks, 100% renewable energy, paid family leave, pay equity for women, a green new deal, an end to wars, taxes on the rich and money out of politics…

Impeach Trump, kick out all the republicans, 90% of the democrats, and get to work on the real issues.
