In other news, Goldman Sachs exec Gary Cohn will receive a golden parachute of $100 million for joining the Trump Regime.

Meanwhile, the head of the Border Patrol resigned today, one day after Trump announced his fantasy wall. Word is the border control union, which is run by thugs, wanted him out. The union endorsed Trump.

Finally, a woman in Minnesota is suing her own transgender daughter and local officials to stop her daughter's transition. The woman and her attorneys have even misgendered her daughter as "him" in court filings.

It's hard to say anyone else is the worst person in the world while Trump sits in the White House, but this woman is making a real push for it.

    So a police union hated the idea of “comprehensive immigration reform” because they (like so much of the GOP’s voters) desperately want to hunt millions of people down who have harmed no one rather than just improve border security. Yeah, I’d say “thugs” was the right word.

    A women is suing her own child because she’s transgendered. Gee I wonder which political party she votes for?

    • Imagine how horrible her child feels. There is nothing worse than having a parent betray you like this. Just awful.

      A women is suing her own child because she’s transgendered.

      To be fair, that’s not what the linked article actually says. The suit is because the teenager is a minor and “healthcare providers treated her 17-year-old as an emancipated minor without [her mother’s] consent”. The mom is complaining that her parental rights were violated. The article, and the complaint document it in turn links to, say the mother is suing because the process by which her parental rights were supposedly terminated is flawed.

      It may be that the mother is motivated by her daughter’s gender orientation, that she wouldn’t be filing this suit if her daughter had been getting some different medical treatment. But that isn’t what anything I’ve found says.

      The case is about parental rights, but that doesn’t make as click-baitable a headline as “Mom Sues Transgender Daughter”.

    About Obamacare, they are literally telling their minions that they will only repeal the mandate. Which is, of course, ridiculous. They plan to repeal everything most especially the government subsidies that would be the Affordable part of the Affordable Care Act. And all those GOP voters who will die without the ACA, will die.
    And not only will the GOP not care, they will go around grinning about it as if they have done a good thing.

    And yet, there are still people who keep clinging to this:
