Things To Do On Twitter When Your Administration Is Dead


You know what never gets old?  

Putting Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on blast.

After all he looks and perambulates like a turtle, talks like a turtle, and is pure, calculating Republican evil from head to toe.  So as President Stupid's administration stumbles into the Remainder Bin of History, why shouldn't  he join the fun and amuse himself by laying a Twitter 2x4 upside McConnell's head?

Of course the right time for McConnell to bring up the subject of Donald Trump's wildly excessive expectations would have been back before the election of 2016.  You know, back when Il Douche was wowing the morons with very clear and explicit health care promises like this --
"We’re going to have great health care at a fraction of the cost, and you watch. It’ll happen.”
-- and this --
"...everybody's got to be covered." 
"​I am going to take care of everybody. I don't care if it costs me votes or not...​The government's gonna pay for it."
-- and this --
"I am going to save Medicare and Medicaid, (Dr. Ben) Carson wants to abolish, and failing candidate Gov. John Kasich doesn't have a clue - weak!"
-- and so many more!

But while McConnell is certainly a liar and a coward, he is also perfectly competent at doing basic political math, and he knew that those millions and millions of meatheads Trump was whipping into a swooning mob were the base of his party.  And Mitch McConnell knows better than to interrupt a politically-useful mob of whipped-up wingnuts with inconvenient facts when they are mid-rampage.

And anyway, Trump was never gonna get elected, right?  No way, no how, so why trouble trouble by pissing off the meatheads and pointing out that his promises are fucking nuts?

And even if he did get elected, who in their right mind would start with health care on Day One?

And even if Trump did get elected and did start with health care right off the bat, surely there can't be enough Freedumb Caucus political suicide bombers in the House to force Paul Ryan walk the plank on an actual repeal, right? Hell, it'll probably never make it out of committee, or if it does we can pass some token bullshit that knocks a few poors off of Medicaid, declare victory and then get on with the important business of cutting taxes for Republican benefactors.

Ah, but in the greatest nest "If-Then-Else" statement fall-through in American political history, all of those things did happen, and now President Stupid has nothing but time on his hands, failure at his feet,  and an overwhelming need to do what all Republicans always do when their promises blow up in their face and their plans turn to shit:  find someone else to blame.  

And with no Clintons or Obamas on-hand to frame for this particular fiasco, it looks like it's McConnell's turn in the barrel. 

In other words, welcome to Liberalville asshole.  

Behold, a Tip Jar!
