Do you remember a few days ago Senators Perdue and Cotton said Trump never said “shithole” during the immigration meeting?? Essentially, they called all the other people in the room liars. Funny considering the White House NEVER disputed his use of the word and came right out and said they supported his use of the word. What ever.
Do you know what Purdue and Cotton said they DID hear? “Oh, he didn’t say ‘shithole’, he said ‘shithouse'”.
Really? That’s how they get to deny the President said “shithole”. In fact, Cotton said, “I did not hear derogatory comments about individuals or persons.” No kidding. Nobody said he did.
Another example of lying for the President that makes them look PATHETIC.
If I counted correctly, 11 Democrats voted YES during the first budget vote. CNN was excusing the 11 Democrats by suggesting the only reason they voted YES was because they were up for re-election.
So, apparently those 11 members are in venues that might be heavy populated with members of the opposite party. That is, the official might be a Democrat but the constituents are mostly Republican.
It would also seem that those 11 Democrats most likely always vote their party line NO MATTER WHAT THEIR CONSTITUENTS WANT – unless it’s an election year. Essentially, those 11 Democrats have NOT been properly representing their constituents.
THIS is what’s wrong with our elected officials. And, I’ve found Democrats to be slightly more guilty of this than Republicans. I’ve said this in prior posts – we don’t give a fuck what you (the elected officials) think. You are there to do OUR bidding, not your own and not to support your buddy from the other side of the country who took out for dinner in D.C. last week.
So, the next time there’s an important vote, make sure you do what your CONSTITUENTS want, not what your PARTY wants.
