Donald Trump is an amazingly petty, childish, egotistical, and narcissistic man. He is running the nation from his Twitter account and lashes out like a toddler at every slight – be it real or perceived. He is becoming more and more unhinged by the day, with evermore disgusting insults flying from his stubby little fingers 280 characters at a time, endangering the nation and world more and more by the hour. Despite these painfully dangerous and continuous developments, that does not stop Republicans in Congress from stroking the orange one’s ego at every turn, for he is their only hope of passing their draconian, cruel, and un-American agenda before the nation gets fed up and kicks them all out of office. That may be why House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy has taken to giving Trump his favorite Starburst in order to sweeten him up and get on the crazy man’s good side. McCarthy said in an interview that in a meeting with Trump, they had been eating Starburst candies, and he noticed that Trump only ate the red and pink ones:
“We’re there, having a little dessert, and he offers me some. Just the red and the pink. A bit later, a couple of his aides saw me with those colors and told me, ‘Those are the president’s favorites.’ ”
That seemingly gave McCarthy an idea:To have a staffer pick out a bunch of red and pink Starburst and deliver them to Trump as a gift. This is the sort of thing one would do for a child who they are trying to butter up for a visit to the dentist or something equally unpleasant. It shouldn’t be the sort of ego-stroking that is needed for ANY adult, much less the leader of the free world.
Leader McCarthy is debasing himself by cozying up to Trump in such a pathetically humiliating way. He looks like a servile lapdog, hanging out at Mar-a-Lago, and feeding Trump’s obscene vanity.
This is your modern Republican Party folks. Good luck, America. You’ll need it.
