Ryan “Retires”, Tillotson Resigns, Haley Walks Away, Mattis May Jump Ship… What Do They Know?

___________________

Many of the figures in the Trump Administration are walking away from power. This isn’t how politicians normally act. You have to drag them away from power. However, Repugs seem to be abandoning the SS Trump as quickly as they can, before the election débâcle happens. The Affluent Effluent are richer and more powerful than ever. Yet, none of this “trickled down” to the rest of America. Two jobs or working more than 40 hours is the norm to meet the bills. The Republicans spit on us and intend to do us more harm. They’re so arrogant and power-drunk that they chortled that they were going to cut Social Security. That’s a political “third rail”… if you do so, you risk enraging senior cits, who’re a reliable voting bloc, and they DO vote against all those who’d cut their retirement. The stupidity of Trump and his advisors is beyond words.

Do note the desperation of Repugs in the Southern states trying to cut blacks and Latinos from the voting rolls. They forgot something… most of the seniors motivated to vote against them are white, not minorities. I’ve never seen the like in my life (and I hope never to see the like again)… the Republican Party is spitting on the ordinary retired folk who voted for them for years. Their stupidity is monumental and mind-boggling. Donald Trump may go down in the history books as the man who made the Republican Party into a minority party of the Southeast and of Evangelicals… neither group is large enough to guarantee control of Congress or the White House.

What shall it end as? I think that a crippled Trump will hobble on until 2020… even the Repugs don’t want the religious fanatic Pence in the White House. Anything else will be up for grabs…
