Not to sound like a hippy, but American politics could probably use a chill pill right about now.
We have never before seen anything like this in our great nation, and we have President Trump to thank for it. (And I mean that in the best way possible).
Do you think that Ireland’s snakes were happy when St. Patrick began driving them out? Are swamp dwelling alligators enthused about being dragged out of the murky depths? How many times have you seen a rat who’s all too excited to be cast back outside…or worse?
Trump is the exterminator in this case, draining the swamp in ever more dramatic ways as of late, and angering every slithering creature that stands in his way.
Senator Elizabeth Warren is embracing this reactionary role, however, and proudly.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren has a message for those attacking her as angry: Yes, she is.
On Friday afternoon, the Massachusetts Democrat, in a fundraising email for her presidential campaign, addressed the innuendo stoked this week by former Vice President Joe Biden and others who have cast her as a elitist ideologue.
“I am angry and I own it,” the subject line read.
“Over and over,” Warren wrote below, “we are told that women are not allowed to be angry. It makes us unattractive to powerful men who want us to be quiet.”
And while Warren may have been responding more directly to an attack by Joe Biden than by President Trump, the pressure cooker atmosphere of the Trump administration’s fight against government corruption appears to have everyone on edge.
