Trump Watch November 6 2017

Day 282:

It’s all falling apart

I love how all these asshole republicans are trying to make their own horrible records look better by pointing at Trump.

“Sir you’re covered in rotten dog shit”

“But that guy is covered in the same rotten dog shit, but he is eating it!”

They are all connected, and all taking money from shady people.

Are you going to look back on this time and wonder if you did enough? The least you can do is educate yourself and VOTE!

This is not normal, this is not ok.

There is probably someone horrible you could be voting out of office right now!

You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.

Monitor your congressperson:

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

Elections!
