It just can’t get any worse than this monster’s non-stop, cynical, lying, pathological narcissism from getting a headline; but just by virtue of his being who he is, he gets them. Page 1, too. Millions of adoring political zombies and, of course, their cynical Trumplican leaders, hang on his every word; his every pronouncement as truth emanating. Trump is Charon, ferrying an entire nation across the River Styxx.
The following is one of the more insane examples of this cretin’s infecting our political “discourse.” As long as he’s around we’ll all be wandering in the desert. This guy makes Berlusconi look like Marcus Aurelius; he makes Netanyahu look like David Ben Gurion; he makes milkweed palatable. And, it goes on and on and on. All day. Every day.
Former president Donald Trump was adamant when he was in the White House that Senate Republicans do away with the filibuster so he could push through his agenda with a simple majority vote.
“Republican Senate must get rid of 60 vote NOW! It is killing the R Party, allows 8 Dems to control country. 200 Bills sit in Senate. A JOKE!” he once tweeted.
Trump warned that if Republicans didn’t do it first, the Democrats would the next time they held the majority.
Now that Democrats do hold the majority, Trump is supportive of the filibuster and praised Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin III of West Virginia for blocking efforts to change or get rid of the filibuster.
