Abraham Lincoln once said that upon the death of a corrupt lawyer it wouldn’t be necessary to dig a hole to inter him. He was so crooked, he could just be screwed into the ground.

I wonder what Honest Abe would think about today’s Republican Party.

Since President Trump took office, he has lied more than 3,500 times (according to The Washington Post). He has surrounded himself with liars, including Rudy Giuliani and Sean Hannity. Some of his entourage, such as Scott Pruitt, Jeff Sessions and Kirstjen Nielsen, ought to be defenestrated.

This nation doesn’t need a blue (Democratic) wave in the midterm elections; it needs a blue tsunami.
