"Its my only income": Trump voter shocked after learning he plans to cut key program she needs

‘It’s my only income’: Trump voter shocked after learning he plans to cut key program she needs


Krista Shockey, a Trump voter who relies on the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program to survive, reacted with shock this week after CNN told her that President Donald Trump’s budget proposes massive cuts to the program.

In an interview with CNN’s Heather Long, Shockey explained that there is simply no way she’ll be able to find work if her SSI payments get reduced or even eliminated.

“There’s no way I could go back to work,” Shockey explained. “I’ve got a lot of problems. I’m crippled in my feet, knees, back, hands.”

CNN first interviewed Shockey this past fall, when she explained that she was a “life-long Democrat” who was voting for Trump in the fall. At the time, Shockey said that there was no way she could possibly live without SSI payments.

“It’s my only income,” she told the network.

Trump In The Wild: A Nature Documentary

Macron throws shade to Trump, then Trump tries to rip Macron's arm from its socket

Paul Ryan was RIGHT (can't believe I said that): This is 100% on the voters in Montana.

An enabler of the monster...say, for instance, Dr. Frankenstein as opposed to the monster himself...is every bit as culpable for the actions of the monster.

The "red hats" elected Trump.

The voters of Montana installed Gianforte, which pretty much comes across as a vindication of Trump.

Last night on CNN, one of their reporters was trolling locals in Montana. One said that he "felt good" about the smack-down, because "You're a polite reporter, but you know a lot of you aren't that way." When she pressed him further and asked if he had any reservations about a guy who "allegedly" beat a reporter up serving in Congress, he said "no."

The take-away from this, for me at least, is that 2018 is not a sure thing, "taking back the House and Senate" is going to require one hell of a lot more work than we might have thought. It can be done, of course...but you have to look at the sick fucks who stood behind this asshole and voted on a straight party line ticket.

Those same people will be voting in 2018, too.

HOW HAPPY was Angela Merkel to see Trump today? Look at the pic and decide for yourself.

The Onion Invites Greg Gianforte To Physically Assault Our Entire Editorial Staff

‘The Onion’ Invites Republican Candidate Greg Gianforte To Physically Assault Our Entire Editorial Staff


Given the important policies they oversee and the highly public nature of their work, it is to be expected that our government officials will at times come into conflict with the press, especially amid the tense political circumstances in which we now find ourselves. And it is not unusual for these tensions to reach an explosive flash point, as they did last night in Montana when Republican congressional candidate Greg Gianforte attacked a reporter from The Guardian for asking what was a shamefully antagonistic and prying question regarding the Republicans’ proposed healthcare bill.

In light of these events, our editorial board would like to state our unwavering support of Mr. Gianforte and invite him to physically assault every member of The Onion’s news staff.

It has always been the belief of this storied publication that elected officials and the press have important roles to play in our democracy: namely, that the former sets the policies that guide our nation, and the latter subserviently provides a mouthpiece to trumpet the will and intentions of the ruling class without question and without complaint. We here at The Onion are fully aware that our own reporters, like all members of the power-mad, out-of-control media, frequently overstep these sacred boundaries by scrutinizing the decisions and actions that those in mighty seats of authority, such as Mr. Gianforte, do not wish to discuss. And in such instances, it is important—imperative, even—that those who hold the reins of power put us in our place and punish us, preferably with considerable physical force, so that we never again commit such improper transgressions.

If any of our journalists have ever made Mr. Gianforte feel threatened in any way at all, whether by holding a recorder too close to his face, writing a story that did not paint him in a positive light, or disrespectfully seeking clarification on a point he or his party might have made, we encourage him to use his fists, knees, elbows, or a blunt object of his choice to make it known through repeated physical blows how we have upset him.
