“I am not on strike. I was furloughed against my will. I am against spending tax payer money on a wall. I am not on strike demanding a wall. I would very much like to go back to work” #notonstrike #ShutdownStories”
“I can’t “get another job” during the shutdown–my agency requires pre-approval to do other work. Trying to stay upbeat and hang on.” #ShutdownStories
“This is America. I am a federal employee going to work every day to keep people safe, and I am not receiving a paycheck. I love my job and want to keep it, but with lack of progress, I have to start searching for a job with pay. This is America.” #ShutdownStories
These are just a few pleas from the people who are suffering because of the Trump Shutdown, and his need to soothe his fragile ego.
Trump claims that he understands what more than 800,000 men and women and their families are going through. I call bullshit. He has lived his entire life in luxury and has never worked a day in his life. He and his Klan have never been forced to worry about paying bills or providing for those they love. Trump cares about Trump and no one else.
Millions of ignorant Americans made the biggest mistake in American history when they voted for a totally unqualified egomaniac who has never told the truth once in his pitiful life.
Trump’s hypocritical party is now supporting his demand for a ridiculous and unnecessary ‘wall.’ They must follow him out of Washington and never be allowed to return.
The shutdown is Trump’s responsibility and his alone. He could end it with the single stroke of a pen. The original agreement was bipartisan and would have allowed all government workers to perform their jobs with pay until February 8th.
Your illegitimate president has no compassion, no intellect, and no morals. He can take his “wall” and shove it up his humongous derriere.
Impeach Donald John Trump
