Trump is getting paid; Mitch McConnell is getting paid; Chuck Grassley is getting paid; John Cornyn is getting paid; Steve King is getting paid; all Congressmen are getting paid, and Mike Pence and other members of Trump’s administration are receiving a 10 percent pay raise.
Of the 800,000 government employees who are out of work, thanks to Donald Trump, many are forced to work without pay. Most Americans know that the secret service continues to protect Trump’s humongous derriere, and his wife and spawn who were partying at Mar-a-Lago. Also, being forced to work without pay are guards at federal prisons, and TSA employees. There is already a talk of shutdowns at some of our nation’s largest and busiest airports.
In at least four of our nation’s airports TSA employees are calling in sick in large numbers. It is very likely that a number of terminals could be closed soon, and in some cases entire airports. Flights will certainly be delayed, and hundreds of flights cancelled when aircraft are unavailable to transport passengers. Trump is not concerned; he has Air Force One to use for his personal pleasure. Those golf balls won’t hit themselves.
America has a very big problem. Our founding fathers designed our government to be composed of three branches; each separate but equal. As long as traitor Mitch McConnell controls the senate, one entire wing of congress is subservient to their immoral and incompetent president. This is not American, and this is not democratic.
Change must come in November of 2020. Republicans are the enemy of not only America, but more importantly the American people. This is our country, not theirs.
