AN INNOCENT AMUSEMENT

This is hilarious but absolutely true. We need many, many people like this calling or emailing the White House and Mitch McConnell's office on a daily basis. People literally and repeatedly need to scream at Trump and McConnell in order to motivate them to do something resembling the right thing.
