#EndorseThis: Should Children Eat? A Short Course In Trump’s Cruel Budget

Share

Stephen Colbert isn’t impressed by the grandiose title affixed to Trump’s first federal budget, “A New Foundation For American Greatness,” and notes that the president and his budget director Mick Mulvaney are “building that new foundation for American greatness on the ground-up bones of poor people.”

Among the many cuts that violate decency are huge reductions in SNAP, the food stamp program, and CHIP, the children’s health insurance program created by the late Senator Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton, back in 1997 when she was first lady. (It has saved millions of children’s lives since then.)

“I know this is an unpopular position these days,” Colbert confesses, “but I believe children should go to the doctor and eat. Where do I find the courage?” He also points out the irony that seems to have occurred to everyone but the #MAGA crowd, namely that this budget “is particularly cruel to one minority group: Trump’s voters.”

And he’s worried by the ruinous spending cuts slated for the National Institutes of Health and the Centers for Disease Control: “Whenever that thing inside Steve Bannon bursts out and goes airborne, we won’t be prepared for it.”

It’s funny, if you take your humor very dark.

    How much more does Trump have to do before his loyal followers begin to realize that they were conned? Between his healthcare proposal and this budget, the ones that would suffer the most are from states that voted primarily for him. What a great payback for their votes….don’t you agree? Hopefully, they will soon begin to see the light and vote Democratic for the midterms so that at least we have ONE legislative body on our side to stop this man and his billionaire minions (all of whom only care about how much MORE money they can make for themselves)!

    I’m saying this in a very Christian way when I pray it’s Gods will that Trump gets cancer of the tongue. But before it must be cut out he goes thru chemo and watch that mop of orange hair fall out. Then of course we have Lex Luthor as President but just not smart at all. Bottom line is this is a very vile hateful President who will be removed from office once he can definitively be tied to colluding with Russia ???????? I can’t think of any one redeeming quality of someone who wants to trash the environment, cut healthcare on 23 million people, kick people off of disability and tell them to get a job when they can’t work and deny food for hungry Americans
