Trump supporters are quickly beginning to learn that their “f*ck your feelings” attitudes have consequences. The more people they marginalize, the fewer the number of those who continue to support them will be. After several other viral stories of well-known Trump supporters being forced to face the people they have hurt, yet another comes from Florida.
My mother was diagnosed with cancer over a year ago & to see people like Pam Bondi want to strip her of her health insurance is really sickening just 1 of my moms meds cost nearly 300$ a month without insurance. In this new cold world there is no compassion!

Attorney General Pam Bondi thought she would enjoy a movie with her family on Saturday, but as it turns out, many of the moviegoers are those who would be hurt by Bondi’s support of eliminating protections for preexisting conditions. She was shouted out of a screening by those angry with her.

Fred Rogers, or Mr. Rogers, was the subject of the documentary, a man who believed in fairness, caring, and empathy. It is ironic that Bondi, who seems to believe that the poor shouldn’t be covered by healthcare if it costs her and her friends a dime. Bondi responded to the criticism by rushing out of the theater with her head down.

Little children will cry themselves to sleep tonight after being taken from the one person who cares about them.
Yet she eats comfortably in a plush restaurant.

Other Republicans who have recently faced the same situation include the Trump adviser who created the policy of detaining migrant children in tent cities and abandoned buildings, Stephen Miller, the HHS Secretary who first said that policy didn’t exist and then defended it when she was exposed for lying, and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who deflected and defended the policy when she was asked about it, as well.
The Red Hen should have just taken Sarah Sanders' order, then spent an hour saying, "We'll get back to you on that."

Sooner or later, these people were going to have to face the music.
