Madness

What the heck were the House Republicans thinking yesterday?

This is how they chose to start of their new Congress?  This is their priority?  Unbelievable.

They faced a shit storm of phone calls and ended up backing down, but really?  This is disgusting.  I read somewhere yesterday, and I’m struggling to find it now, that the Rep who proposed the change is under an ethics investigation himself.

In other fun news, Omarosa is joining Trump’s staff.

For the record, I was joking when I predicted that here:

Republicans were successful in passing a rule to fine anyone from taking pics on the House floor.  This, in response to the gun filibuster last year.

And last but certainly not least, Trump continues his “feud” with our own intelligence agencies and is continuing to side with the bad guys.  We’re in an upside down world.
