Today America’s #1 traitor, Mitch McConnel, confirmed that this shutdown belongs not only to Trump but also to the entire Republican Party. Two House bills which would have reopened the government and returned hundreds of thousands of government workers to work and paid those who are working without pay was blocked by McConnell, who has failed the people of Kentucky and the United States for over 30 years.
Yesterday the Department of Homeland Security tested Trump’s “pipes,” which would replace his claim of a concrete wall, and found that they could be cut with an inexpensive saw.
Trump finally admitted that his idea of a wall is ‘Medieval’ but claimed that walls built in the 1600’s were effective; lies!
They were breached in multiple ways including the construction of tools to get over the walls and tunnels to dig under them, and now we know that they could be cut by a hardware store saw.
The most important fact is that in the 21st century electronic surveillance is far superior, and less costly. Another failed and ignorant Trump proposal.
McConnell attempted to cover up the fact that he was obeying orders from his fuhrer. McConnell is not a good liar, but he is consistent.
“The last thing we need to do right now is trade pointless — absolutely pointless — show votes back and forth across the aisle,” McConnell said.
Republicans continue to display actions which prove they believe that the American people are stupid. Although it’s true that the 2016 election proved them to be correct, things have changed. All intelligent voters now know that Trump was the biggest mistake in American history. In the 2020 election, Republicans will experience even greater defeats than they did last November. Supporting Trump has become political suicide.
The truth is that there is no reason for this shutdown. Trump’s ego is in need of support, and that is the only reason why more than 800,000 Americans are suffering. It is important to note that Trump, his administration, and every member of Congress continues to receive their paychecks and benefits. What the f**k is wrong with America? You know the truth.
