Sounds like he has a case of Trump Derangement Syndrome.

Edit: Better call up a doctor. L Brands CEO Les Wexner is leaving the Republican Party. Whens the Vickys burning party?

I am happy to be in good company in regards to Trump's tax cut:

As for Republicans, he said, they “were supposed to be the fiscally responsible party.” But they’re running a trillion-dollar deficit and have given a huge tax cut “largely to rich people.” He added, “Whatever irresponsible fiscal things the Democrats do won’t be worse than what the Republicans have already done.”

Rule of thumb - never believe someone who says “believe me”.
