I awake and pinch myself because I do not want to believe that the

United States of America and its citizens are being held hostage by a temper tantrum three year old. We need to all be afraid because all those who can check his behavior and put an end to his tantrum are in cahoots with him.

3. It's interesting how complicit they are with him

But he would run them over in a heart beat. It's like some weird abusive relationship. They would like to leave him but feel like they can't. And in the mean time, they both continue to do damage to everyone else.

A bunch of racist idiots. That's even scarier than Trump. He'll be gone but they're still going to be here.

7. That's the way I see it too.

I found out that I live amongst them in Central Pa. They voted Republican in my district in 2018, 80% to 20%.

5. gotta wonder how far the idiot will push it

I realize nothing matters anymore, and there's no point in trying to find any kind of logic or reason behind anything the fucker does, but really, at this point it's just "I care so much about this nation's safety and security, I will actively harm it, and continue to exponentially increase the amount of harm until I get my way."

What is this, like some racist fuck murdering his daughter b/c he'd rather see here dead than in a relationship with a black man? "I'd rather see this nation destroyed than continue to watch the demographics of the population keep going in a non-white direction."

17. I'm sure

He already knows. The Republican Party as a whole has slipped to a level of treason. They are all either involved, or are silent and therefore complicit and culpable. If ther was any question before this, it’s gone. There is now no way that they don’t know what’s going on. None of them.

10. For the past two years, every morning, before the news comes on, I ask myself,

"What fresh hell awaits us today?" It's like being in the fucking Twilight Zone at this point.

I turn on the news after asking myself, "I wonder if he had a stroke" or "I wonder what has happened that will definitely nail him immediately?"

22. McConnell.

He is acting as a co-sponsor of this immoral shutdown. Every discussion of Trump as a bad faith actor in this shutdown should equally include McConnell. Trump is mentally deranged, but McConnell is public enemy number 1 for releasing him on the American public.
