Are Republicans Now Picking ‘Winners And Losers’?

April 3, 2018

Recall the cheesy mantra about picking ‘winners and losers’ that took place during the 8 years of President Barack Obama’s Administration?  It seems that Republicans are now doing the same thing they accused the successful and popular Democratic President of doing.

Trump has taken to twitter in a series of outrageous claims in an effort to deflect from his whores, turnstile White House employees, and sinking markets.   As is the case with his tweets facts are left alongside the toilet where he sits thinking.

“I am right about Amazon costing the United States Post Office massive amounts of money for being their Delivery Boy.”

First and foremost that is simply a lie.

Amazon isn’t causing the United States Postal Service to lose a fortune. In fact, it’s contributing to its biggest growth sector, which is—DRUM ROLL PLEASE– package delivery. Deals like the one with Amazon brought in $7 billion in fiscal year 2017.  What can also be said is that a 2006 law codified profitability into law, and an independent regulatory commission that reviews deals in the postal service annually gave it a green light on March 29th!

Trump is simply a complete idiot.

But back to the start of this post and my wondering what happened to those Republicans who spent the better part of the last decade saying that politicians and Washington should not “pick winners and losers”?

Could it be that Obama was black and Trump is Orange?
