Its been five days, and I still can’t believe how much damage has been done already. Here is what you should be complaining to your senators and representatives about today.
Trumps INSANELY unqualified cabinet is starting to get approved by the senate. CIA director Mike Pompeo (who wants to increase the governments ability to spy on you) got approved, here is how the Senate Voted, do you see your senator voting for this guy? Maybe you should give them a call and tell them you are not happy with them approving such an unqualified individual for this post.
I am really disappointed in the 14 Democrats that voted to confirm.
The 66-32 roll call Monday by which the Senate confirmed Mike Pompeo to be director of the Central Intelligence Agency.
A “yes” vote is a vote to confirm the nomination.
Voting yes were 14 Democrats, 51 Republicans and 1 independent.
Voting no were 30 Democrats, 1 Republican and 1 independent.

Now might be a good time to call your senator and tell them you don’t want them approving any more unqualified hacks for cabinet positions, especially now that Rex Tillerson the CEO of Exxon Mobile has made it out of committee and is about to be voted on by the entire senate.
Trump’s Ego just wont let him stop lying about the popular vote total. He just can’t handle that he was beaten by almost 3 million votes. He keeps claiming that there were millions of illegal votes. Not only is this totally false, but he keeps blaming immigrants for this. He is fomenting racial hatred, and blaming the “other” classic signs of fascism. This is not OK, and not normal. He can’t even win gracefully.
Trump has stopped foreign aid money to group that provide abortion services, even if they also provide a lot of other good health care. Family planning is vital to developing countries, and this movie will only result in more harm to women around the world. Ironically when these sorts of clinics are closed, it tends to lead to an uptick in abortions, because now women and men don’t have access to contraceptive. Bad policy, built on faulty logic, data shows it doesn’t work….TRUMP!
The white house shut down the comment line, telling people to go to facebook instead, but has yet to set up a facebook account….ignoring the public is another bad sign of a dictator in the making. Call your representatives instead, they are up for election soon, and will be a lot more interested in hearing how much you don’t want them working with this man.
Trump has begun to bring paid lackeys to speeches he gives to make it seem like he is more popular than he is. He did it at his press conference, and now he is doing it as president. This is the kind of shit dictators like the leader of North Korea pull, not the kind of thing the American President does. This is how you slowly slide into a strong man dictatorship.
The EPA has been ordered to freeze its grants and told its employee’s not to talk about it…we can not lose the EPA to this monster.
Feel like this is all a bunch of bullshit? Want to do something about it? Call your Senator, and your House Rep. and tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump.
