Dan Rather Explains How Actual Rats Are Better Than Trump-Supporting Republicans



?s=19


Dropping the last shred of any political waffling on the matter, former CBS News anchor Dan Rather came right out and declared that real rats are better than the Republican elected officials who stood by President Donald Trump until now.

He first compared nervous Trump supporters finally tip-toeing away as his future dims to rats fleeing a sinking ship. .....................(more)

2. And now these want-to-be rats want to flee the ship? Good timing, eh? Where in the hell were...

all of these people before the crazy loon/trump got into office? Where were they when they impeached trump? Where were they period, when this Country is suffering and Moscow Mitch is playing footsie w/ the fourth stimulus bill and teasing everyone about it, not really making any efforts to help businesses and people when the CV is hurting so many?

7. I'd say it's a toss-up....

Rats carried the plague in the middle ages that killed millions.

Doturd, Repukes, and Repuke policies have killed A LOT, not just here but around the world. It would be interesting for some stats guy to actually calculate the difference between the two, rats vs Repukes. (he said half joking....)

21. Thank you

I didn't know that rats were that smart or empathetic. They're definitely better than Republicans.

11. "By gnawing through a dike, even a rat may drown a nation." Edmund Burke

About tRump's Congressional sycophants: It doesn't matter what they say now. The damage has been done. It no longer matters whether they desert him, stand by his side or plant their lips on his ass through eternity.

They made their choice. They knew what they were doing. They helped tRump and Russia in their attempt to destroy our Democratic Republic. Meanwhile...
There are still babies locked in cages. There are more hungry children than ever. We're approaching a quarter million dead Americans. If R's want to whine about their choice they should have the decency to do it in a place where the rest of us are not subjected to the bullshit. They don't need to worry about buying groceries yet they won't pass a bill to help hungry families suffering from Trump's Covid19 failure.

That being said, Dan Rather is a national treasure. I love him.

Love the pointed out layout. tRump appears already on a life boat while his enablers are left onboard the sinking ship to carry out his orders.

23. Need to dismantle the RW+Repub propaganda machine...

We need to take the Senate in order to repair the damage done by GOP over the past 4 decades. Agencies that were created to protect us have been warped to enable those they're supposed to protect us from, such as the FCC. Conglomerates now feed us our 'news' and entertainment, with filters suitable for their profitability.

Profits and power have become the ultimate goals in too many things. Decency, honesty, competency, and empathy are shoved aside in pursuit of these.
