Fact: Trump has the least qualified and most corrupt administration in history. From Mike Pence to paid liars Kellyanne Conway, and Stephanie Grisham, not one person in the White House was hired for their expertise. It has become obvious that there are only two questions on the application form: “Do you share Trump’s beliefs in white supremacy, homophobia, Islamophobia, and misogyny,” and “are you willing to constantly lie to save Trump’s illegitimate presidency.”
Two of Trump’s most loyal supporters are Stephen Miller, and Mick Mulvaney.
Stephen Miller is currently under attack by Jewish members of congress, and civil rights groups across America. His open support and belief in white supremacy has forced these groups to demand his removal from the White House.
Mick Mulvaney remains loyal to Trump, but like others have learned, Trump’s loyalty is a ‘one-way street.’ The word from the White House is that as soon as the impeachment process is completed, Mulvaney will be looking for another job.
Trump’s reelection campaign has been telling Trump for months that a leadership change is needed for the 2020 campaign. In recent weeks Mulvaney has been excluded from many upper level White House meetings.
“He is there. I’ll leave it at that,” said a Republican close to the White House when asked about Mulvaney’s status. “He’s like a kid. His role at the dinner table is to be seen and not heard.”
In related news, as of December 19, 2019, 25 Republican members of the House have announced that they will not be seeking reelection in 2020.
From talking to other voters, I doubt that most Americans understand the election process in the House.
A candidate for a seat in the House must be an American citizen; born in the United States; or born to at least one parent who is a citizen of the United States living in America or residing in a foreign nation. She or he must be 25 years of age or older. She or he is up for reelection every two years. That’s right; 435 members of our nation’s legislators serve only a two-year term.
Currently there are 233 Democrats, 197 Republicans, and one Independent in the House, while four seats remain vacant.
The Impeachment of Donald John Trump last Wednesday represents the importance of a House majority. Trump would never have been forced to face his crimes if Republicans controlled the House. Because Republicans control the senate, and have announced that they will violate their oaths of office and acquit Trump, regardless of the facts, justice will not be done. Trump will not be removed from office and will receive the benefit of additional foreign influence in our 2020 election. Moscow Mitch and DJT win again.
How much longer are we going to allow this farce that is our current government to remain in control of our nation?
