What could I possibly add to that? And in other news, a metaphor:
A train carrying dozens of Republican members of Congress, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, to their legislative retreat in West Virginia hit a truck Wednesday, leaving at least one person dead.
The driver of the truck was killed, President Donald Trump said Wednesday afternoon. Five patients were transported to UVA Medical Center, with one in critical condition, the hospital tweeted. Amtrak said three passengers and two crew members were hospitalized with “minor injuries.”
Republican train wreck on way to luxury resort hits truck killing blue collar worker while spilling garbage everywhere. That’s about an apt a summary of the past couple decades as anything.
