Scapegoating Mexicans and the Koch Brothers.


Paul Ryan will vote for  #BabyTrump.

Donald Trump and I have talked at great length about things such as the proper role of the executive and fundamental principles such as the protection of life. The list of potential Supreme Court nominees he released after our first meeting was very encouraging.

Later in the evening The Wall Street Journal reported on the respect #BabyTrump has for an independent judiciary.

Donald Trump on Thursday escalated his attacks on the federal judge presiding over civil fraud lawsuits against Trump University, amid criticism from legal observers who say the presumptive GOP presidential  nominee’s comments are an unusual affront on an independent judiciary.

Ryan says he can't support Grandma.

A Clinton White House would mean four more years of liberal cronyism and a government more out for itself than the people it serves.
 Instead, he's going to support #BabyTrump's cronyism. #BabyTrump wants to investigate for antitrust violations because the Washington Post, owned by Jeff Bezos, founder of Amazon has been critical of#BabyTrump. He wants to engage in a trade war with China benefiting the few at the expense of the many. He wants to allow Keystone as long as the US gets a cut. And it goes on, and on, and on.

I get it. Grandma is awful. But that doesn't mean any other option is better.

I was hoping that maybe the only good thing to come out of this election is Congress would grow a pair. That seems unlikely. The GOP wants to bow to a vulgar, short-fingered bloviating ignoramus. The Dems are in thrall to someone equally venal, self-absorbed, self-centered and amoral.

It probably won't impact us that much. We are older, wealthier, less likely to feel the impact of all the awful policies of both of these numbskulls and their anencephalic supporters. But our kids, our poor kids. We are robbing them of the future we had and blaming who: Mexicans and the Koch Brothers.

How did we get here?
