Donald Trump is watching as his special counsel Robert Mueller investigation goes deeper and deeper into the decay of this presidency and his business. It has struck a nerve. As a result, POTUS has been getting stranger and stranger. This morning’s tweet is just another example of how bad things are getting inside the president’s head.
Naturally, Trump attacked one of his enemies, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (R-CA). Yet, what he said made no sense. He said that if government employees were not getting paid, then neither should the speaker. What about the other members of the House and the Senate? What about him?
‘Why is Nancy Pelosi getting paid when people who are working are not?’
Pelosi is the strongest opponent that Trump has ever faced. She grew up in a family of politicians and held the Bible when she was just a child and when her father was sworn in as mayor of Baltimore. She knows full well that if she gave into the president, this would only be the first time that he shut down the government when he wanted something.
Trump appeared oddly cold to the consequences of his actions. Families cannot pay their mortgages, their rent, their car payments, and soon it will be groceries. The president said that the shutdown might go on for years.
One member of the Coast Guard spoke about his mother. She has to live in a nursing home, and he has helped her with her rent. Now, he is very worried. He does not know what he will do or what she will do.
Parents used to live with their children when they got older. Now, the Republicans have squeezed so much money out of the middle class, both adults have to work full-time, and often a second part-time job for each of them.
