Republicans still dumbest voters

Aren't Republicans the dumbest?
Aren’t Republicans the dumbest?

In a 2011 PublicMind poll conducted by New Jersey’s Farleigh Dickinson University, not only do Fox News viewers score lower on current events than viewers  of other new channels when tested. This group actually knows “less correct information about current events than people who watch no television news at all.” That’s from one of my posts in May 2015. And everyone knows only Republicans watch Fox News so it would make sense that “GOP-inclined voters surveyed June 5-20 believe millions of illegal immigrants voted in the 2016 election, and 73 percent believe voter fraud occurs somewhat or very often.” And that is what’s wrong with our electorate.

Trump continues to play the innocent

The old saying goes, ‘the best defense is a good offense,’ and Donald Trump is playing that tune down to the bitter end. The Washington Post says Paul Manafort “…has been a subject of a longstanding FBI kleptocracy investigation focused on Ukraine.” Suspicion arose when he didn’t file as a foreign agent until June 2017. The Associated Press says Manafort came up with a plan in 2005 “…to influence U.S. politics, business dealings and the media in order to “greatly benefit the Putin Government.” He became T-rump’s campaign chairman briefly and resigned when he admitted to receiving $12.7 million in undisclosed cash payments from Yanukovych’s pro-Russian party.

Donald Trump still undermining Obamacare

Yes we know that the Oval Office lunatic has bad-mouthed Obamacare to the point where neither insurers nor the people they serve know if the program will last out the year. Even with Congress’ repeal failure, T-rump still threatens to somehow get rid of the Affordable Care Act and Anthem insurance has decided to help his cause. They’re leaving the Affordable Care Act marketplace in Virginia because it “…has been destabilized by uncertainty about the future and dark pronouncements by President Trump that it is about to fail.” Even with much better-than-expected profit and revenue, they’re dumping the program along several other insurers. What happened to dedication?

Just what you’d expect from a Republican…“Sieg Heil!”

Jeffrey Lord, the CNN commentator from way over on the right and a fervent supporter of Donald Trump was fired “…after he tweeted the Nazi salutation “Sieg Heil!” in response to a feud with a liberal activist.” I’ve never cared for the guy because his excuses for T-rump stupidity make about as much sense as Kellyanne Conway, and that’s bad. Lord labeled one of his critics “Media Matters Fascists,” and when its president, Angelo Carusone, called his hand, Lord responded with the tweet, “Sieg Heil!” Now, as a matter of reference, this phrase is so associated with Adolph Hitler, that it is banned in Germany. However, very appropriate for a Republican misguided muckraker.
