The “Twitter Twit,” that malignant growth festering in the White House, the one who spews lies, insults and hate like a firehose spews water, has once again shown how petty, vindictive and childish he is by canceling the pay raises due to federal workers just because the courts interfered with his attempt to weaken their collective bargaining rights.

His lame excuse is that it would add too much to the national debt. This from the an administration whose tax breaks for the wealthy and dumb-ass trade wars will raise the debt by about a trillion dollars over the next few years; who wants taxpayers to pay billions more to bail out farmers hurt by those stupid tariffs; who also wants several millions for a parade to stroke his already inflated ego.

Let’s make America great by insulting our allies and praising our adversaries, aided by a spineless, cowardly Congress and voter apathy. It looks like we’re about to become another failed democracy.
