Some Other Life Form

Image Source:
Hypocrisy, especially the brand practiced by the Republican political people, has long been a particularly irritating fact of life. When combined with the self-righteousness certitude and arrogance practiced by the Trump administration, it manifests itself in a clear disdain for all other forms of humans than themselves and the .001%.

This vicious disdain for the infirmed, sick, aged, poor and vulnerable, as well as the rest of 99.9% of Americans, recently came flowing out when Mr. Pence encountered a knowledgeable, human-with-a-soul, Dr. Rob Davidson, a Michigan ER Doc. Take a look at the video clip below.

Of course, Medicaid cuts are but one of a multitude of sociopathic evils the Trump administration has inflected upon average Americans. Here are a few others:

  • Using the presidency for personal economic gain;
  • Committing campaign finance violations by paying hush money to Karen McDougal and adult film star Stormy Daniels;
  • Obstructing justice in connection with the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller;
  • Abusing the pardon power to reward political allies;
  • Abusing emergency powers to build his border wall;
  • Incarcerating undocumented immigrant children in prison settings;
  • Attempting to strip millions of Americans of health insurance;
  • Promoting tax reform to benefit the super rich;
  • Gutting environmental regulations and pulling out of the Paris Climate Accord;
  • Refusing to enforce the Voting Rights Act and promoting an ideology of white supremacy.

With this everyday, in-our-face display of contempt for others, one can only conclude that Trump Republicans are really not humans. They must be another life form.
