With the shutdown of the the federal government now 15 days old and some 800,000 federal workers struggling to pay their bills without a paycheck, President Donald Trump thought it would be a good idea to go on Twitter and let the world know that he doesn’t give a damn about those dedicated employees.
Saturday morning, Trump posted this hateful tweet:
I don’t care that most of the workers not getting paid are Democrats, I want to stop the Shutdown as soon as we are in agreement on Strong Border Security! I am in the White House ready to go, where are the Dems?
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 5, 2019
Perhaps the most ludicrous part of this tweet is Trump’s ridiculous assertion that the workers not getting paid are Democrats, as if he knows the political affiliation of everyone who works for the federal government.
The simple fact is that many of these workers live paycheck to paycheck, just like millions of Americans who cannot afford a membership to Trump’s posh Mar-a-Lago golf club or to stay at one of his overpriced hotels.
But Trump doesn’t care about them. He doesn’t care about anyone but himself, which is typical of sociopaths and narcissists.
Social media blasted the president for his utter lack of concern:
You DO NOT CARE about 2/3rds of the voter’s. That’s just despicable. We really need to impeach you.

The fact that you have now referred to the supposed political affiliation of the 800k a few times, shows you STILL don’t see everyone as Americans. We will always be R or D to you. How can you ever try to govern if you can’t see us ALL as Americans?

I think your administration can be summed up in the first three words of your tweet.

Thank you for admitting that you do not care about American citizens.

Trump just admitted he doesn’t care about anyone but himself. Isn’t that alone enough to boot him from office? If not, it should be.
