The Hatch Act (and other violations) Don't Apply To Trump Minions


                                         Good Day World!

“...and woe betide anyone foolish enough to question my caffeine intake.” -Kieron Gillen
Just to be clear this morning, there's a double standard in Washington where everyone but Trump's minions have to follow the rules.

The latest example:

The US Office of Special Counsel (OSC) found that Kellyanne Conway has violated the Hatch Act "numerous times," and recommended she be fired.

"Never has (the office) had to issue multiple reports to the president concerning Hatch Act violations by the same individual," said Special Counsel Henry Kerner in a letter to Trump.

The agency is only a watchdog however, and cannot pursue violations. Only the president can. As expected, Trump laughed and shredded that request.

It was just another peep from the underlings in government who aren't personal followers of the orange anus.

Another example:

Senate majority Leader Mitch McConnell's wife, Transportation Secretary, Elaine Chao, directed an aide in the US Department of Transportation to prioritize her husband's Kentucky projects. He's up for re-election in 2020 and is using whatever devious means he can to stay in power.

In any other administration either of these two cases would have been a major scandal. In the Trump era they're just beeps on the radar.

I could easily add to this list, but it's unnecessary for the purpose of getting my point across. You've got the idea.

Americans are going to have to tolerate this kind of shit until Trump and his minions are purged from The White House.

Time for me to walk on down the road..
