Government employees are often smeared as lazy grifters suckling taxpayers' teats

enjoying good salaries, solid benefits and durable pensions while providing little value in return.

So it's a little jarring to see them now characterized here as passive sheep, willing to continue working without pay and lacking the backbone to stand up, tell the federal government (and all the people whom they serve) to "take this job and shove it," and walk away ...

These people aren't sloths or sheep or slaves. They are hard-working Americans who help make our system work and our lives better and who have been placed in a terrible position and are now suffering through no fault of their own. We owe it to them to support them - not slander or second-guess them.

Thank you, Senator Franken

Had you not so skillfully boxed in Jeff Sessions with his own lies, he would not have had to recuse himself from the Russia investigation. And we all know that, unlike Comey, Sessions would have quashed the investigation immediately upon Trump's request and he surely would never have approved the counter-intelligence investigation into his boss.

So, thank you, Senator Franken. We owe you a great debt. And you deserved far better than you received from us. I sincerely hope - and expect - that history will be much kinder to you than we have been.

Trump believes he's diminishing the Minority Leader and Speaker by calling them "Chuck and Nancy"

In fact, he's personalizing them and making them seem much more relatable.

What an idiot.

Donnie, Jr. posts article touting that "Ford Cancels $1.6B Mexico Plant, Adds 700 Jobs in Michigan"

Except the article is two years old and this happened under President Obama.
