The Mad King's Reign

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   5 comments

It's time for the Republican Party to decide how far it's willing to go in enabling The Mad King. How far down the rabbit hole are they willing to drag the country in order to continue The Mad King's reign of incompetence and unbridled idiocy?

Of course, the Mueller Report even in redacted form revealed The Mad King for exactly what he is. And, he knows it: "I'm f-ed!"

The idea of The Mad King as president was always an absurd and grotesque proposition - that is, to anyone who had even a passing familiarity with his biography. But, the Republican base was looking for an agent provocateur. It craved someone that would own their many grievances - real and imagined. The Mad King would scratch that itch with the tenacity and dedication he normally reserves for the pursuit of porn stars and real-estate grifts.

It's important to remember that, leading up to the explosive details of the Mueller Report, The Mad King was poised to pull the carpet out from under millions of Americans in the form of a court challenge to the Affordable Car Act - with the goal of its repeal. Now the salient point here is The Mad King has no interest in governing, policy or anything related to being a competent chief executive. His overriding purpose, as president, is to repeal or undermine anything associated with Barack Obama's presidency.

The reality that 20 million U.S. citizens would lose their access to healthcare, and that 100 million U.S. citizens would lose coverage for preexisting conditions means absolutely nothing to The Mad King. The only thing The Mad King is concerned with is stroking the "base" and his bizarre vendetta against Obama.

More importantly, Republican lawmakers apparently don't care about their fellow citizens either as witnessed by the overt display of the inherent sociopathy of Republicanism demonstrated by their 2017 Rose Garden celebration of the reality that they were gleefully prepared to throw millions of Americans off their health care with ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to replace it.

Temporarily stymied by nervous Republicans running for reelection in 2020, The Mad King went back to his deep well of campaign lies and reasserted that after the 2020 election he and his Republican lackeys would come up with a health-care plan that would be cheaper, better, cover everyone and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

The important take-away from this; and, more generally, "the s**t show in a dumpster fire" the country has been subjected to during the last two-plus years, is how critical it is that The Mad King's reign ends in 2020.
