Gotham City Digest, 7/2/18

     Toto, I don't think we live in America, any more!

     There you have it. The federal government no longer cares if your child gets an education. Unsurprisingly, this is in Michigan, which hosts the city of Detroit, which has some of the worst test test score results in the nation. Again, this is what voting Republican does. The Michigan GOP has been poisoning the children of Flint and now they're further hampering their intellects and ability to learn by saying an education isn't a constitutional right (unlike owning a gun as a "well-regulated militia.).

     The only reasonable explanation for Trump not thinking his insane tariff war would not result in push back is if he's completely insane. Either that, or he's trying to destroy America for the sake of Russia. And Canada just hit us with $12,5000,000,000 in tariffs on steel, coffee, you name it.

     It sounds to me as if Cohen's about to roll over on the Fat Man. I've got the beer. Who's bringing the popcorn and the giant foam middle finger? I only have one question- What happened to Cohen's family and country when he was busy acting as a fixer for Trump and paying off Stormy Daniels $130,000 in hush money?

     Last month we'd heard of the Texas Deputy in Bexar County who was charged with sexually assaulting a four year-old immigrant girl then threatened to deport her mother if she ratted him out. And the month before that, we heard that Border Patrol officials threatened migrant children with death and rape during the glorious Obama years. And now it's been made known that one of ICE's top lawyers was arrested and charged with stealing the identities of at least seven detained immigrants. What's next? Harvesting their body warmth to fuel the Matrix?

     Who needs safe roads and bridges when we can just spend that money bombing the shit out of the roads and bridges of other countries? Because nobody knows more about infrastructure than Trump, lemme tell ya.

     If you thought Donald Trump's "deal" with North Korea's Kim Jong-un had hair and warts all over it before, take a gander at this ugly baby- .As North Korea reportedly increases nuclear production at secret sites, satellite photos show it looks even fuglier now. But in Trumpworld, satellite cameras add 20 nuclear warheads. Keep in mind that this is a guy who recently executed a high ranking military official for giving extra food to soldiers and their families.

     It seems every time Trump visits an American company, it turns out to be the kiss of death. First, there was Harley Davidson, who was hit hard by Trump's loony-ass tariff war that "forced" executives to offshore thousands of jobs. Then there was Carrier, which has just axed another 215 jobs after getting their massive tax break. #youllbetiredofallthefuckingwinning

     I'm glad Trump's finally decided on what he's going to wear in Helsinki.

     "Affordable insurance for everyone," Obama said, "It'll be the best thing since Medicaid," he said. This was one of the reasons why I was so against Obamacare nearly a decade ago. All it was was a giant gateway to the always predatory free market with a mandate, only without a public option. And whatever that would be lost through what few middling benefits we got under Obamacare, the HMO's more than made up for. One of those ways was to jack up premiums and deductibles for employer-based health care plans. Now we're back to where we started. Bernie Sanders wrote a bill that was exactly two pages long. It would have extended Medicare to anyone who needed or wanted it. Of course it never got to a vote so now Medicaid expansion depends entirely on the political party of your Governor. Giving states the right to opt out of Medicaid expansion was one of the many sops Obama and the Democrats threw to the right wing and they STILL barely passed the ACA. Then they spent the next eight fucking years trying to take even THAT away from us.

     So, now we're intimidating comedians because Jared "I Lied on My SF86 Forms Four Times to Get My Top Secret Security Clearance" Kushner was stupid enough to put him through to Trump?

     What is this, a fucking Luc Besson movie?! This is how Lex Luthor escaped from prison.

     Trump is either the stupidest, most dishonest, most delusional, most paranoid or most insane person to ever wander into the Oval Office. I vote for all five. Which is why we need to Impeach 45. Now.

     Another Blake Farenthold. I'll be so glad when this clown finally leaves Congress this January. Hopefully, Trump inherits Trey Gowdy's barber. And finally...

     Yes, this fucking airhead actually asked child prisoners in yet another bomb of a photo op, "Have you made new friends?" I;m surprised she didn't ask them, "And what have we learned today?" The answer no doubt would've been, "Coming to this neofascist country of yours was the biggest mistake my parents could've possibly made."
