Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Conservatives are throwing a tantrum. Trump is a complete failure and we’re all doomed because he signed the horrible, no good, very bad budget bill. Spending out of control! Mountain of debt! Economic collapse! Doom!
Yeah, but where’d he get the budget bill? From Congress, right? And Republicans control the Congress, remember? The Speaker of the House is Paul Ryan, R-Wisc and the Senate Majority Leader is Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky. If those schmucks passed the bill and sent it to Trump for signature, how is it his fault that the country is doomed? Why didn’t they exercise a little fiscal restraint?
Why is it Trump’s job to battle Russia, China, Iran, North Korea, the Deep State, Democrats and, oh yeah, Republicans, too?
Plenty of blame to go around, in my book.
