Let's change Republican red to yellow

Last year, congress passed a law stiffening sanctions on Russia in response to their interference in the U.S. elections of 2016. Five lawmakers voted against the bill, that's five out of both Houses, five out of 535, or less than one percent.

This week, Trump decided maybe he wasn't down with all of that. Despite the fact that he took an oath to "preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States," and subsequently its laws, he figured, eh, screw that.

And how have the republicans responded? Meh, whatevs.

He derided a Gold Star family, as well as a military hero. Well, the republicans can easily turn a blind eye to that.

He has been accused of sexual misconduct by 21 women. (Sound of crickets)

He backed an accused child molester for senate. So sayeth the republican lawmakers: that'd certainly be an improvement over a democrat.

He invited Russian spies into the Oval Office, an honor that almost no American citizens will receive. (Sound of whistling)

He lies without hesitation, profits from the presidency. Hell, here's an incomplete list I compiled. And it's all met with a collective yawn from the right.

It's my understanding that we have three co-equal branches of government. There isn't a king and his subjects. So I propose changing the republican color from red to yellow. It is now, as it has been for the entirety of 2017, party above country. As Mitch McConnell is reported to have said, "[Trump] will sign anything we put in front of him." That seems to be all they care about . . . well that and preventing the base from turning on them by criticizing the emperor with no clothes. Gone are the days of republican values.

Actions that would get a middle school football player thrown off the team are now acceptable for the President of the United States. That's a pretty low bar. But who cares when there are only a handful of team members even willing to call a spade a spade?

2018 Trump plans unearthed


One sentence

Tomes could be written on the problems with the current head of the federal government, but I think it's possible to whittle everything down to one sentence:

Trump has the intelligence of a sixth grader and the Republican Congress is trying their best to divert attention away from it.
