Laugh, Laugh, I Thought I'd Never Stop, But...

Good Day World!

It all started in 2015 when I heard that Donald Trump, world-class douche bag was running for president of the United States!

I'll be honest, I thought it was a joke. So I laughed along with millions of other Americans at the mere thought. 

America chuckled at the idea of a reality star who liked firing people as the leader of the free world.

In 2016, I laughed at the idea that the Orange Anus thought he could beat out 19 other Republicans to be the party candidate for the Oval Office. So did many political pundits.

I stopped laughing in January 2017 at about the same time the majority of Americans stopped. A con man for the ages, with the help of the Russian government and other foreign powers, had stolen the election.

A dark pall settled over the majority of Americans whose votes were invalidated by the Electoral College. The popular candidate lost as a result of a fixed election. The nation was stunned.

In 2018, more and more Americans starting seeing through Trump's lies, as news organizations kept a daily count. Everyone knew that special counsel Bob Mueller's investigation into the Trump team and Russia conspiracy was a Pandora's Box that would keep on giving.

There wasn't a lot to laugh about last year. The clown squatting in the White House did everything he could to sully America's international ties, attacking everything from the UN to NATO. His tariffs struck like a knife in the heartland of America and farmers are feeling the results now.

Laughter turned to tears last year as immigrant families were separated from their children at the southern border. In the last month, two children have died in tent cities on the border. With proper care, it wouldn't have happened. 

Baby Boy Trump's temper tantrums have resulted in trying to create a crisis on the border during the midterms (which backfired spectacularly with the Democrats retaking the House) claiming caravans with terrorists, rapists, and all kinds of bad people were on their way to assault our southern border.

Here we are in 2019, and Trump's shut the government down until he gets his vanity wall. He still, incorrectly calls it a crisis on the border. The only crisis there, is as we all know, is Trump's draconian treatment of the immigrants...and now 800,000 federal workers going without pay.

Things are a changing, as a song once suggested. I was able to laugh today when I saw Trump's twitter. You know, the one where he was praising Nashville, Tennessee, when in fact he was going to New Orleans for a convention!

Couldn't help myself. You know what I'm thinking? There's going to be a lot to laugh about as Trump get's taken down - step-by-step this year - until he's finally behind bars.

Time for me to walk on down the road...
