The news coming out of Washington D.C. these days is coming out so fast, it feels like one’s head is spinning.
At a rally in Florida earlier this week, you know who made it perfectly clear that he is out of touch with everyday Americans, despite his snake oil salesman shpiel that claims otherwise.
I honestly don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Of course he doesn’t know anything about buying groceries, why would he? First as a “billionaire” and then unfortunately as President, he has no need to buy groceries directly. He has staff who does that for him. While I have to concur that some stores may ask for ID when a customer pays via a credit card, many stores may not ask to see the customer’s ID. When speaking to reporters, Sarah Huckabee Sanders claimed that he was referring to the purchase of alcohol. While it is true that customers who buy alcohol are carded, you know who did not say anything about alcohol. He just said groceries.
While this was going on, Ivanka Trump actually admitted that she disagreed with two of her father’s hot button policies: the separation of families at the border and the claim that the media is the enemy of the people.
Nice of her to say so, but her speaking up now is too little, too late. Where has she been all of these months? Not just a mother, but as a human being, how could she have been immune to the children crying for their parents and the parents begging to at least know that their children are safe and healthy?
History is often the greatest judge of character. Generations from now, when our descendants learn about what we are doing in 2018, they will ask why. I hope we can answer them.
