Trump and the GOP circle the drain

“President” Donald Trump and his band of ne’er-do-wells have no heart, much like the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz. Every day, by their every action, they demonstrate their disregard for human lives and their views of the nation. They must not like us at all, and perhaps should go back to somewhere.

First example is Ken Cuccinelli, the acting Director of the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. On Wednesday, “KKKen” Cuccinelli spoke about the Statue of Liberty and reinvented it to sound very white nationalist. On NPR and in another interview, Cuccinelli stated that the “Huddled Masses” in the poem on Lady Liberty are strictly white Europeans.

The poem of course is a famous one and until now represented the invite of the grand experiment that was the melting pot of the United States. The Emma Lazarus poem states: “Give me your tired, your poor
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”

Cuccinelli changed the language, including by stating that it should read: “Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge.”
He apparently has not read the real words, which includes homeless. Someone of these views has no place in government, let alone as the Director of USCIS.

The second example is Iowa Representative Steve “White Supremacy” King, who as a reminder was removed from committee assignments earlier this year. Perhaps sad that he has not been on the radar lately, today he spoke about abortion, questioning if there would be any population left if we took out those born from the acts of rape or incest. Nobody seemed to be backing King in his latest vile statements. Sadly, the right is coming out from cover and expressing how it really feels on a variety of issues, an American they apparently harken back to.
