Lest We Furr-get: When The GOP Really Believed That America Should Be First
We cats literally cannot believe two things: A) the headlines that we're seeing today, and B) that the Republican Party is okay with them. Here are just a few of those mind-boggling headers:
"US Intercepts Said to Capture Russian Officials Congratulating Themselves on Trump Win"
"Russia Meddled in US Election, Clapper Says, Rejecting Trump's View"
"Former CIA Director James Woolsey Quits Trump Transition Team"
"Trump Rhetoric on Intel Agencies Alarms US Allies"
It is clear that the Republicans' traditional hard line against hostile foreign powers has melted to nothingness in their zeal to eradicate (or prevent) all things Obama — the Affordable Care Act, environmental regulations, the Iran nuclear deal, a lawful Supreme Court nomination, and so on, and so forth.
Which is proof that the GOP's fear of the black man and his vision for America trumps fear of anything else — even if it takes them to the brink of what we'd consider treason. We cats HISS.
