National Defense Secretary, General James Mattis, is resigning. He will be gone Feb. 28. His resignation letter basically says that he, a combat veteran, is quitting because Trump has abandoned the country and our allies in favor of our enemies. He’s respectfully accusing Trump of treason. Mattis is the first person in 2 years to call Trump out to his face.
The straw that broke the camel’s back was Trump announcing on Twitter that the US is pulling out of Syria.
With Mattis gone, Trump will be left unsupervised. There are no checks and balances in our government. The Republicans are either in on everything, or they’re scared of Trump. Either way, they are all derelict in duty by not defending and protecting the country against the president.
There is no way out for Trump. This is coming to an end. He’ll either resign or be forced out. His mental disorder is off the charts now and he is acting out minute to minute, in a deranged panic. He’s isolated in bunker mode. He is very, very dangerous. He must be stopped.
In the midst of all the chaos, Trump tweeted a video of himself singing the theme song from “Green Acres” at the 2005 Emmy Awards.
Fox and Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade said Trump just ‘refounded ISIS’ by pulling troops out of Syria. Fox and Friends is calling Trump out to his face now, too. On TV anyway.
The only parties happy about the US pulling out of Syria right now are Putin and Assad.
“I am shaken by the resignation of General Mattis, for what it means to our country, for the message it sends to our troops and for the indication of what his view is of the commander-in-chief” — Nancy Pelosi
“Make no mistake what happened today. The US military’s finest general of his generation, whom historians will compare to Grant, Marshall, & Ike, threw in the towel over Trump’s basic lack of patriotism & decency. You will tell your grandkids about this day, my fellow Americans” –John Schindler
The Senate passed a bill unanimously to keep the government open with 100% bipartisan support. The House passed their own bill with $5 billion in funding for Trump’s wall, jamming it through the House in order to placate the president. The Senate cannot pass it today because it doesn’t have the votes. So Trump is going to shut down the government and he’s blaming the Democrats.
Trump was criticized by Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham and Ann Coulter so now he’s going to shut down the government. He’s willing to send government workers home for Christmas without pay. Doing this 4 days before Christmas will not only ruin Christmas for government employees, but it will mean that they’ll miss their rent and mortgage payments. Most people live paycheck to paycheck in this country. Trump doesn’t understand that nor does he care.
Trump is such an idiot that it didn’t occur to him that if he shut down the government there wouldn’t be anybody at the border to stop the invasion of immigrants.
The GoFundMe campaign for Trump’s wall reached $11 million. Are the donors all Mexicans?
A counter campaign has started to raise money for ladders to get over Trump’s stupid wall.
Homeland Security Secretary Kristjen Nielsen couldn’t answer basic questions during a House Judiciary Committee hearing about her job or how many migrants have died in DHS’s custody. She couldn’t even give a rough estimate.
One of the members of the Godless Democratic party, Luis Gutierrez, invoked the birth of Jesus when he ripped Kierstin a new one. He yelled, “Thank God there wasn’t a wall there and thank God there wasn’t an administration like this!” She just sat there, emotionless, Godless.
Trump thinks that migrants escorted by coyotes across the border are actual coyotes.
“Okay, Republicans. How much longer are you going to let this farcical ‘presidency’ continue? At a time of such political, economic, and geo-strategic turbulence — both nationally and globally — are you waiting for a catastrophe to happen before acting? Disaster looms!” — John Brennan, former director of the CIA
Asking the Republicans to really ponder their own legacies isn’t a reasonable exercise in character and decency for these people. If they don’t give a shit about passing laws that kill and starve Americans, they aren’t going to care what history has to say about them.
Trump is burning the White House down. The Republicans are just standing there, watching it burn.
#TrumpResign is trending on Twitter on the Friday before Christmas.
