Trump Watch June 19 2017

Day 151:

Trump and the republicans in office are quietly trying to continue to fuck you over, despite the daily media shit storm.  I think they know that a lot of them are going to lose their elections next year.  But that doesn’t bother them, because they don’t work for you, they work for a host of big money interests and will be well paid and safely employed by those people after they loose their election.

However none of this will matter at all unless you go out and vote for the midterms.  100% of the republicans need to go, there is not a single good one in the whole batch.  And sadly so do about 90% of the democrats, as they are no longer an opposition party, and no longer represent the will of the people.

This might be our last chance to pull this plane up before we all collectively slam into the mountain.
