Our Con-mander in Chief

You may have already seen this Facebook post.   It's zooming around the internet.   But just in case you missed this from Ben Mallicote, here it is:

"You voted for Trump because Clinton was going  to be in Wall Street's pocket.  Trump wants to repeal Dodd-Frank and eliminate the Fiduciary Rule, letting Wall Street return to its pre-2008 ways.

"You voted for Trump because of Clinton's emails.  The Trump administration is running its own private email server.

"You voted for Trump because of Clinton's role in Benghazi.  Trump ordered the Yemen raid without adequate intel, and tweeted about "FAKE NEWS" while Americans died as a result of his carelessness.

"You voted for Trump because Clinton didn't care about 'the little guy.'  Trump's cabinet is full of billionaires, and he [wants to take away] your health insurance so he could give them a multi-million-dollar tax break.

"You voted for Trump because he was going to build a wall and Mexico was going to pay for it.   American consumers will pay for the wall via import tariffs.

"You voted for Trump because Clinton was going to get us into a war.   Trump has provoked our enemies, alienated our allies, and given ISIS a dedcade's worth of recruiting materials.

"You voted for Trump because Clinton didn't have the stamina to do the job.  Trump hung up on the Australian Prime Minister during a 5 pm phone call because 'it was at the end of a long day and he was tired and fatigue was setting in.'

"You voted for Trump because foreign leaders wouldn't 'respect' Clinton.   Foreign leaders, both friendly and hostile, are openly mocking Trump.

"You voted for Trump because Clinton lies and 'he tells it like it is.'   Trump and his administration lie with a regularity and brazenness that can only be described as shocking.

"Let's be honest about what really happened.

"The reality is that you voted for Trump because you got conned.  Trump is a grifter and the American people were the mark.  Now that you know the score, quit insisting the con-man is on your side."
