President Trump, Republicans, Democrats, and the uber looney left spent an exhausting seven days attempting to push through legislation, rally the troops for midterms, shut down government buildings, and commence a symbolic fast for 24 days in Texas – all in hopes of abolishing ICE. The fast, of course, was symbolic in that no one went hungry.
Citizens from New Mexico to Ohio were atwitter with commentary on all platforms of social media, sharing the news of Representative Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) call for a “push back” on any Trump cabinet member, staffer, or supporter, sparking vitriolic responses from conservatives, liberals, alt-left, and independent thinkers with no affiliation on a variety of issues.
Liberally aligned posters were unusually quiet as conservatives posted “Mad Max” and “Aunty Maxine for president” with a lot of winking emojis to ensure their sarcastic comment was not horribly misconstrued. Donna B. from Ankeny, Iowa:
“Has that woman done any governing for these last two years or is she the latest face of angry and shocked Liberals? I swear she’s insane. That does not bode well for the Democratic Party if they can’t control that mouthy woman.”
Michelle K. from Peoria, Illinois weighed in on a Chicago news station’s Facebook post about whether or not Waters’ remarks were indeed inciting violence as she asked, “Is that woman that wears bedazzled cowboy hats?”
No, Michelle, that is just a whole different style of crazy in Florida with Congresswoman Frederica Wilson (D-FL) and her strong attachment to rhinestones.
I Cry Fowl
In a tiny restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, press secretary Sarah Sanders was told she wasn’t welcome because she worked for President Trump. Sanders shared her experience via Twitter and brought opinions out in short order.
Protests cropped up immediately, Yelp reviews were weaponized, and an emblematic egging had the owner, Stephanie Wilkinson, rethinking her knee-jerkiness toward Sanders and her family.
There was also a plethora of squawks on Twitter in support of the establishment, but the requests for visits from ICE started immediately. As @DrDavidBradford commented, “I believe it is time for ICE to drop in for a visit to a Red Hen…understand this place only hires immigrants….wanna bet how many are illegals?”
Overwhelmed by the response to her own actions, Wilkinson has closed and locked the doors on the Red Hen “until further notice.”
And Justice for All
With the announcement of Justice Anthony Kennedy’s imminent retirement from the Supreme Court came the woebegone wails from the left blaming the octogenarian for ruining their future. Apparently, they would prefer the man cloak himself until death, in his black robes, to keep Trump from another appointment. At the rate justices are dropping, Trump may have a new court by the end of his second term – if he gets one, and at this time, it seems most likely.
Mike C. of New Mexico celebrated the announcement on Facebook with his post headline: “It’s evenings like these I love watching Rachel Maddow on MSNBC!” To which Lori S. replied, “Can you tell if she’s on sedatives yet?” And Ella P. responded: “Is she fake crying that the world is coming to an end? LMBO.”
But Trump did not spend a lot of time pondering his court appointee prospects as he addressed a crowd of 20,000 in Fargo North Dakota. Instead, he praised Kennedy as a “great” man and said he would try to fill his seat with someone of similar centricities.
Another busy week for folks in flyover states defending their president and celebrating the wins of this administration. Although the left was rendered apoplectic, it didn’t stop the incessant plotting in the darkened back rooms to take over the government by tossing homemade Molotov cocktails at the constitution. But the Heartland is filled with common sense patriots loyal to their country, humbled under her flag, and armed with guns. Lots of guns.
