Trump Watch October 10 2017

Day 255:

At least its a short week

I had a revelation over the weekend. Trump is treating his presidency like a shitty tv show. With cliff hangers, with plot lines so outrageous that you forget about the last one because the next one will be even worse. I think people are “tuning in” every night to see what insane thing he will be doing next. All the while the country crumbles down around us.

This is real life folks, time to get out there and vote!

See how your elected representatives are voting for or against Trump.

Elections!
