Trumpcare is horrible, and it affects everyone, even those with healthcare through employers. Today might be the day of reckoning, where the House either kills the bill or gets enough votes to head to Senate. Call your Reps and tell them NO, WE DON’T WANT THIS.

Colbert finally (and unapologetically) responds to #FireColbert backlash: ‘I would do it again’  Trump supporters of all people will know that saying controversial things will only help the ratings.

But watching Hillary Clinton trying to blame the FBI and wikileaks for her loss is hilarious.  You were running against Donald Trump, you should have had such a lead that any amount of wikileaks and FBI nonsense wouldn’t have mattered.  Instead you were such a weak candidate that only a 1 or 2% shift cost you the election.

This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 80

Trump Watch:

Live by the crazy, die by the crazy.  Trump used the white nationalists, and conspiracy theorists to rise to power, but now they are turning on him. If he fires Bannon he will get it from the far right, and the far far far right are already throwing around works like “Illuminati.”  This is why you don’t make a coalition of the nuts to win office.  It’s only a matter of time before this all falls apart for Trump.  Sadly these folks are doing real damage to our country in the mean time.
