Trump: Kill Everything Good

March 8th, 2018

Donald Trump has ponied alongside evangelicals for a while now, and they’ve done a good job at holding their noses. But ironically, it wasn’t a dead child in Florida that made them stand up to the idiot at 1600 Pennsylvania avenue, it was an elephant.

Trump lifted the Obama sanctions against the poaching of elephants in Africa after Donnie and Eric Trump bitched about not being able to kill more endangered species, and that brought out some unusual responses.

“Please @realDonaldTrump, stick with your good instinct on this. We do NOT want to reward animal poaching. You will alienate independents & conservationists! #RespectAllofGodsEarth” said Laura Ingraham, a critic of gun control when aimed at elephants, but apparently not children. Other conservatives are also criticizing the move.

(Exhale) I don’t know when this nightmare will end, but if Congress and the GOP don’t move soon, another endangered species might find themselves in the crosshairs of the magnificently stupid.

Us.
