There are times in American political theater that dishearten even the most patriotic Americans, and today, we have witnessed just such a disappointment.
Last night was an incredible night for America. President Trump fully embraced the national pride of the nation in a State of The Union address that stood head and shoulders above any in recent memory. Trump was equally eloquent and elated, and his overarching theme to the room was that America belongs to Americans. At times, this felt like an admonishment of the nation’s partisan hackery and the democrats’ divisive drivel, but the clearer message was readily apparent: The government works for the people.
Even the usually liberal CBS News was forced to admit that Trump struck a chord with all Americans, even putting to bed the democratic insistence that Barack Obama was truly the man worth crediting for the last year of Trump’s successes.
Then, this morning, tragedy struck a train full of republican congressmen and their families who were traveling to a GOP retreat in West Virginia.
During their travel, the Amtrak train carrying the public servants struck a garbage truck near Charlottesville, Virginia. The aftermath was chaotic and terrifying, with trash strewn about the wreckage of the nearly unrecognizable vehicle. Several GOP congressmen and their aides were injured, and, tragically, the driver of the garbage truck was killed.
While the nation was still reeling from this horrific tragedy, one liberal author decided that this would be an ideal time to take a dig at the GOP in general, claiming that the accident was a form of divine intervention aimed at “cleaning up” Washington D.C.
“Author and self-proclaimed CNN ‘talking head’ Jonathan Tasini took to Twitter on Wednesday to declare that ‘God is working hard today to clean up the stink’ because a ‘train full of Goopers’ slammed into a dump truck moments after the news broke that GOP lawmakers were in a collision that resulted in at least one death.
“A train carrying members of Congress to a Republican retreat in West Virginia hit a truck on the same morning that South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy announced that he is retiring from Congress at the end of his term.
“Tasini, who penned a column for CNN as recently as Jan. 13, decided the two stories were the result of God ridding Washington D.C. of his political opponents.
Tasini, who has been an avid supporter of independent-turned-democrat-turned-independent Bernie Sanders, was immediately lambasted via the social network, and responded with a less than conciliatory retort when confronted.
