Bottom line: Trump is on strike until taxpayers build a massive monument to him in the desert [View all]

800,000 federal workers without a paycheck (many of whom voted for him). 40 million food stamp recipients out of food (many of whom voted for him), millions of tax refund recipients out of pocket (many of whom voted for him).

Sorry, folks! Fuck you until you cough up five billion for a feckless construction project that has no purpose other than for Trump to put his name on and say “I did that.”

Look on his works, ye mighty, and despair.
