Trump to America: Die as I say, not as I do
This week on Democratica, Stu and AJ slog through the White House swamp of disease and deception. 'Don't listen to those pesky health experts, listen to me!' Trump doesn't care if his staffers die, as long as they take their loyalty to the grave.
Because it doesn't matter to Trump if you die. He self-vaccinates every day with presidential power. Injected into his ego by all the soulless Republicans working for him.
Let's all sing the Republican fight song! Corruption, nepotism, cronyism, autocratism...did we mention Attorney General William Barr trying to dismiss charges against Trump's former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. You know, the guy that admitted his guilt for lying to the FBI and was convicted for his role in Russian meddling with the 2016 election?
Meanwhile, in Georgia, three months after Ahmaud Arbery was murdered for jogging through a white neighborhood, a national uproar resulted in the arrest of two white supremacists who committed the atrocity. Justice is coming.
Take Action: Contact Kroger's grocery and tell them to extend the $2 hourly wage increase for their hardworking employees!
Moment of Uplift: A classroom teacher wraps herself in PPE to dole out some serious hugs. We've got pictures. You bring the happy tears.
This is your country for the week of May 15, 2020!
