WATCH: Top Democrat F-Bombs Trump Back to the Stone Age With Epic Take-down That Will Make Your Day
During both the Republican primary and general election, Donald Trump made a long list of promises to voters about the changes he was going to implement should he get elected. Now that he is President, along with both Houses of Congress under Republican control, one would think that he would be able to enact most of these things.
This has turned out to be a problem for his outsider image. Trump ran on this idea that he was going to clean up Washington, only to fill up his cabinet with incompetent, crony candidates with ties to corporate industries and Wall Street. While he has done some good like dismissing the Transpacific Partnership, his accomplishments have been few and far between, and ultimately resulted in taxpayer money being wasted on pointless things like business trips, golfing, and the military-industrial complex.
This has inspired a lot of anger against the President, with people taking to the streets to protest. In Congress, Democrats are considering impeachment charges, especially in conjunction with his associations with the authoritarian Russia.
Speaking at the Personal Democracy Forum in New York University, Kirsten Gillibrand, the junior senator from New York, projected this anger in raw form. When stating whether or not Trump had kept his promises to the American people, she gave the prompt answer of “No. Fuck no.”
Gillibrand quickly followed that up with a tangent on politicians in the federal government, stating that “If we are not helping people, we should go the f— home.” As Mark Weiner of The Post-Standard pointed out, this was not the first time she used this line, having said it during an interview with the magazine New York back in April of this year, showcasing her commitment to truly helping people.
This is an attitude we hope the rest of the Democratic Party takes with regards to not just President Trump, but the Republican Party as a whole. Check out the video below:
