Trump is America’s greatest disaster. However, equally unsettling is how his party; Republicans in name only; abandoned the principles of the once Grand Old Party, and their own integrity and self respect to serve the worst illegitimate president in history.
The examples of hypocrisy on the right side of the aisle are too numerous to count. They are led by the worst senator in history. Prior to the 2016 election, Moscow Mitch McConnell was one of the leaders of the “anybody but Trump party,” but after the illegitimate election began to serve him without dissent.
The latest coward is Senator Kevin Cramer, Republican from South Dakota. Cramer is the co-sponsor of a bill intended to punish China for undermining Hong Kong’s independence.
Two weeks later he blocked that same bill after Trump ordered him to.
Although this bill had strong bipartisan support it remains stalled in the senate until or if Trump gives his permission for a vote on the senate floor.
This is unconscionable. With Moscow Mitch’s surrender of the senate to Trump, our government is dysfunctional. The system established by our founding fathers in 1789 cannot function or exist without three separate but equal branches. This check and balance system is paramount in our nation’s government. Trump controls two branches of government thanks to Moscow Mitch.
You, I, and everyone we know can change this travesty. We can rid Washington of the disease which is Trump and the ‘Trump Party.’ If any candidate has an “R” next to his or her name vote for their opponent. No one could be as big a danger to America as any fake Republican.
