...and flood their switchboards, remember to print out this column by Paul Krugman and keep it in your pocket.
Donald Trump’s Medical DelusionsThanks, Comey.The Justice Department’s inspector general is now investigating the way the F.B.I. director conveyed the false impression of an emerging Clinton scandal just days before the election, even as he said nothing about ongoing investigations into Russian intervention and possible collusion with the Trump campaign. That action very probably installed Donald Trump in the White House. And it’s already obvious that the incoming commander in chief will be a walking, tweeting ethical disaster.On the other hand, he’s also dangerously delusional about policy.Some Republicans appear to be realizing that their long con on Obamacare has reached its limit. Chanting “repeal and replace” may have worked as a political strategy, but coming up with a conservative replacement for the Affordable Care Act — one that doesn’t take away coverage from tens of millions of Americans — isn’t easy. In fact, it’s impossible...
And here is the important part (emphasis added):
But it seems that nobody told Mr. Trump. In Wednesday’s news conference, he asserted that he would submit a replacement plan, “probably the same day” as Obamacare’s repeal — “could be the same hour” — that will be “far less expensive and far better”; also, with much lower deductibles.This is crazy, on multiple levels...
Il Douche can afford to hide out in a gold-plated bunker surrounded by jars of his own urine, just as he can afford to pass his time watching reruns of his own rallies and Tweeting out his every vagrant lunatic thought. He can afford to do this because his meathead legions do not care what damage he causes as long as it makes Libtards cry and as long as there is a clear path for them to skate on the bill and pin the wreckage on Democrats when a reckoning comes sue. He can afford to do this because he can afford to surround himself three-deep in disposable, dead-eyed, lying zombies like Kellyanne Conway.
But there are nowhere near enough Kellyanne Conways to go around, and Republican congresspersons on whom will fall the burden of making good on Il Douche's insane promises cannot all hide under their desks and Tweet out "Freedumb! MAGA!" nonsense without some blow-back.
Hell, this dizzy bitch parlayed her three minutes of carefully staged "I don't wan't the scary black man to turn my country into a dirty Commie Hellhole!" performance art at a town hall meeting --
-- into a series of paying gigs working for the Koch Brother Crime Syndicate.
Goodbye unemployed claims adjuster for a third-tier car insurance company! Hello Director of Policy/ Director of New Media/ Digital Marketing Coordinator/ Digital Marketing Manager for Murricans for Prosperity!
So just imagine what you will be able to do when you start showing up at your congresscritter's events and offices with your kids...and a few dozen friends...and their kids...and a LOT of cameras demanding to know just exactly how they plan to deliver on Il Douche's promise of an Obamacare replacement made available “probably the same day” as Obamacare’s repeal — “could be the same hour” — that will be “far less expensive and far better”; also, with much lower deductibles."
Just imagine what you will be able to do when you and your friends and families and cameras start showing up at their events over and over and over again to remind them that Il Douche is their president, nominated and elected by their party, and that they are personally god damn well responsible for making good on their Dear Leader's promises.
Practice in front of a mirror. Practice with your friends.
And cameras, people. Lots and lots of cameras.
