Surprising virtually nobody, the Republican Party, led by Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell, plan on capitalizing on the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, by being utter hypocrites. It isn’t a surprise that the Republican Party is filled with spineless, power hungry empty suits. It’s just depressing. Sen. Mitt Romney was one of the two or three Republican senators that some people speculated would safely pretend to have some kind of personal integrity and publicly acknowledge the anti-Democracy power-grab being performed by McConnell.

The one thing that many people forgot about Sen. Mitt Romney is that he has no scruples. He’s a billionaire who wants to be president and that’s all he wants. That’s it. Whether or not he lies to himself about a Mormon God that loves him, his actions are incredibly amoral. Since Monday, as Republican senator after Republican senator began giving their truly pathetic excuses for how and why they would vote on a Supreme Court Justice to replace Ginsburg, after having screamed about not even voting on President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland for 293 days, “coward” and “cowards” began to slowly trend on Twitter. After Mitt announced his fake new principals those terms shot into the stratosphere.

Here is it simple and plain.

A sad reality check.

Here’s a fact.

This one really started to just take off. I wonder why?

And something to give to friends and family.

And let’s define “moderate.”

Not a real quote. But totally believable.

And this.

But finally, remember this, and pass this on to conservative friends and family.
