I Know Trump Didn’t Just Donate His Salary to the Education Department After Proposing a $9,000,000,000 Cut

At this point, I wonder if President Donald von Douche Face even knows what’s in the budgets he proposes, or if Papa Bannon just hands them to him and tells him to initial here and here.


I don’t think it’s too much to ask that the president of “people who love deer jerky” know that he’s donating his $100,000 second-quarter paycheck to the same Department of Education for which he’s proposed a $9.2 billion budget cut, or 14 percent reduction, in 2018.

Education Secretary Besty DeVos, who I am convinced is really just Sarah Palin, said that Trump’s paycheck would “go toward hosting science, technology, engineering and mathematics camp for children at the department,” The Hill reports.

“We want to encourage as many students as possible to pursue STEM fields,” she said.

I have an idea, and feel free to stop me if you’ve thought of it ... on second thought, I’d like to bypass that and do something I haven’t done since I was a teenager in high school. I’d like to channel the response of the Department of Education head upon receiving $100,000 from the president, all the while knowing that an impending 2018 budget cut is coming:

Closes eyes and places hands on knees.

“This muthafucka can’t be serious?! I mean, what are we supposed to do with this?! He acts like he’s doing us a favor by throwing his raggedy-ass paycheck our way! I’ll tell you what he can do—he can leave our budget alone and donate this raggedy-ass money to some other cause!”

Opens eyes and blinks, cautiously.

Clearly, the president is just trolling all of us. At this point, I can only assume that all of us, even those who voted for Douche Face, are being played. This has to be some kind of bad joke, doesn’t it? Please tell me that they at least see the irony here?

“please tell me that they at least see the irony here?”

This is why I still periodically peruse conservative sites, so I can see how the indefensible gets defended.
