Presidential paresis

Paul Ryan was Boehnered by Tea Party Republicans.

The so-called Freedom Caucus is anti-government, which presents a paradox when it is in a position to govern.

Since 2010, Republicans have proven to be ungovernable.

The US is a nation of swindlers and rubes. Hence, the Trump Presidency.

  • Muslim ban (stalled in courts)
  • Southern border wall (no brick has been laid)
  • New plan to defeat IS (non-existent)
  • Repeal Obamacare (flatlined)

Stop your sobbing

The Republican candidates attacking “the media” is equivalent to the candidates attacking a mirror for the image they see when they look into one.
