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”

Day 173:

Drip Drip Drip:

The constant drum beat of scandal, outrage, and just general asshole behavior from this whitehouse, and this republican party (and to a lesser extent from the lack of the Dem’s to really stand up to it), is going to reach a crisis point eventually.

I can only hope that the people of this country realize that a peaceful uprising is the only sure way to secure the future.   We must take back the reigns of our government and elect only people who have our best interests in mind.

Violence begets violence, and we must break that chain if we ever aspire to something better.
