I had to Write this; I Needed a Laugh, and I’m Sure You do Too


I will be thrilled if Trump is removed from office. The orange man is unfit to lead my country. He thinks it is his to do with what he will, but it’s not, it’s mine and yours. He is not above the law. However, it is sad that Republicans have allowed Trump’s Constitutional violations to continue for nearly three years and real Americans in our government have been forced into taking the ‘last resort’ to save democracy.

Desperate efforts by right-wing politicians to save Trump’s illegitimate presidency would be laughable if the situation was not so very sad. Devin Nunes and Jim Jordan, just to name two, are so ridiculous they have created fodder for the late-night comics and nothing else. However, the award for the most humorous remark by these intellectually challenged white men belongs to House Minority Whip Steve Scalise.

Earlier last week when Trump visited Louisiana, he challenged his fading supporters to ensure that the Republican candidate for governor was successful or that “he would look bad.” Democrat John Bel Edwards won reelection.

Scalise said that the election did not make Trump look bad. Read this all the way through before you begin laughing.

“What he said was he’d be made to look bad whether he came in the state or not. Eddie Rispone made up about a 22-point disadvantage over the last month because of President Trump’s involvement. So Eddie Rispone was at about 27 in the primary. He ended up at 49,” Scalise told Fox News’s Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.” Not a very good spin doctor.

Oh how Republicans hate the truth. Louisiana remains the only deep southern state which has a Democratic governor. And, no, this doesn’t make Trump look bad; Trump makes Trump look bad every day with his moronic tweets, his lies, his illiteracy, and by proving that his college degree was a gift from daddy; he did not earn it.

Trump’s little brain has given comics all over the world more material than they could ever have hoped for. “W” was a gift, but Trump is a “bonanza.”
