"In a Time of Universal Deceit — Telling the Truth Is a Revolutionary Act" - George Orwell
Good Day World!
The confirmation process for Trump's nominees is so one-sided that the GOP is silencing the opposition by any means possible.
Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren dared to read a letter by Martin Luther King's wife that wasn't complimentary of Jeff Sessions, Chump's nominee for Attorney General, and the Trumpanzees silenced her by using an arcane rule (article19) that was never used before.
If that letter bothered the Trumpies that much why didn't they do something the next day when Democratic Senator Tom Udall (New Mexico) read the same letter? And how about the other senators who read it the next day?
The answer lies in Rump's and his Trumpanzees concern that Warren has been a thorn in their side. The well-spoken and articulate Warren has been holding all of Bump's nominees feet to the fire.
Warren has been the point person for her party since Lump came into office. She's always prepared with plenty of facts and doesn't mince words.
If there's one thing Trumpanzees hate it's facts.
This is clearly demonstrated by Republican Senator Orin Hatch's (Utah) statement to the press:
"Even if what she says was true, it wasn't the right thing to do," Hatched claimed.
No, telling the truth is the right thing to do!
I don't care what Frump's gaggle of ass-kissers say; it's not okay. The truth should never be suppressed.
Sometimes you have to pay a price for telling the truth, but it's worth it. Warren has the high ground.
Voters are watching, and will remember how Trumpanzees lied and cheated to get their nominees into positions of power.
