Trump Watch June 17 2017

Day 149:

They are stubbornly marching forward:

You would think that someone in the white house would have taken a look at the news the polls and maybe just gone out and asked some folks, and then come up with a better plan, if only a P.R. plan to make themselves more popular.  My guess is they are living in a media bubble, only reading sources they agree with, surrounding themselves with yes men and women, and getting a constant influx of money and support from the people they are actually doing the bidding of (the super rich).  There is a very real chance that Trump etc.  think they are doing a great job and everyone loves them.

Could this be why daily they do something to piss off more people, to harm more Americans, or to further destroy the earth?  The other alternative is that they are bad people, and they want to dismantle the country for nefarious reasons, either to make someone rich, or as part of a plot to empower someone else.

Either way the solution is the same.  Vote progressives into office, take back the reigns of power, get money out of politics, and rebuild the system so its more fair and equitable.  That has always been the project of this country.  We have taken some very wrong turns…but that is still the goal.   Trump can’t stop us, because we are the people, and together we are unstoppable.
