I’m trying to feel sympathy. Nope, I got nothing.

Tweet du Jour:

I can almost hear the angry lament from Graham and other Republicans.

The left HATES Trump

The left is vindictive

The left is envious of people who have money.

The left doesn’t care about American security.

Ok, that last one should never be said by anyone in a party that will allow Trump to make a unilateral decision about pulling out of Syria, unleashing ISIS and fucking the Kurds based on a request from an authoritarian dictator in Turkey.

What the left really hates is a party that has deliberately highjacked us and then governed as if the rest of the country doesn’t exist.

The reason Trump isn’t getting his fucking wall is because the majority of the politicians we elected to represent us think it’s a stupid idea.

WE think it’s a stupid idea.

We didn’t send our representatives to Washington to capitulate to Republicans every time they have a stupid idea. We expect everyone to negotiate in good faith to represent the will of ALL of us.

So I gotta ask myself:

Why do the Republicans hate the rest of us?

Why do they act like they don’t have to take “NO” for an answer?

Why do they think it’s ok do reprehensible things and expect us to feel sorry for them when their party is self-destructing?

I really don’t care, do you?
