HUGE defeat for Trump. Congress set to pass funding bill that keeps government open through September. The bill provides money for Planned Parenthood, 100% funding for EPA — NOT ONE PENNY FOR THE “BORDER WALL.” Read all about it here and here.
Imagine if Hillary Clinton had done this.
Hillary Clinton is president. It’s learned that she has deep ties to Putin and the Russian spy agency. She puts utterly unqualified billionaires in cabinet posts. She pursues public policies that benefit her and her billionaire friends. She puts her daughter Chelsea in a position of influence in the West Wing, gives her her own office and allows her to use that position to forward her own business interests. And — Chelsea’s husband is Hillary’s chief advisor. The private business trips taken by Chelsea and her husband are paid for by the taxpayers.
She refuses to release any tax returns, she blocks access to the visitor logs in the White House and Bill refuses to live in the White House so our tax dollars are spent keeping him safe in Chappaqua. Hillary spends almost every weekend lounging in her own, privately-held resort. Her private resort gets reimbursed for all “official” government functions (including security) because she chooses to conduct all her “business” and personal functions there. She and her family live in three White Houses at the same time.
In an interview, she names the wrong country she bombed while bragging about the chocolate cake she was eating while she ordered said bombing. I could go on and on.
If Hillary Clinton were president and if she had done any of the above, the outrage, the outcries, the screaming by Republicans would be heard around the world and impeachment proceedings would already be underway. Yet, Donald Trump has done everything listed above and we hear not a peep out of Republicans.
