Do you remember when Hillary Clinton said “You could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables”?
Well, it turns out that she was right. Now I don’t want to disparage all, most, or even half Trump’s supporters by calling them deplorable. But I will say that the Trump administration is teeming with people who are despicable.
And I include in this cast of despicable characters Trump, himself, his kids (except for Barron, who is probably too young to be despicable), his wife, his entire White House staff, every member of his cabinet, every Republican in Congress, most Republican candidates, and several Supreme Court justices.
In just a few weeks, our American democracy will be faced with its greatest challenge in our lifetimes. Republican governors and legislators in red states are doing everything they can to suppress the votes of those who are most likely to vote for Democratic candidates.
And have you seen these hypocritical Republican candidates dissemble when discussing Obamacare, claiming that they will protect benefits for preexisting conditions while voting for and supporting legislation that would eliminate such benefits? Is that not the very definition of despicable?
It’s time for each and every one of us to make a resolution to vote in the upcoming midterm elections and to sweep the Republicans out of control of the House of Representatives — at least.
We need to save our country! VOTE!
