The president’s push to hand the top 1 percent their Christmas bonus is official: Donald Trump has signed the tax-scam bill into law, because we all knew he wasn’t going to wait until January to sign this crap.

The $1.5 trillion rewrite of the tax code is now the law of the land as the worst president to ever president signed this garbage and then slinked his spineless ass out of Washington, D.C., and off to the winter White House in FuckStick, Fla.

“Everything in here is really tremendous things for businesses, for people, for the middle class, for workers. And I consider this very much a bill for the middle class and a bill for jobs. Corporations are literally going wild over this,” Trump said, ABC News reports.

Trump initially planned to sign the bill after the new year, but when he learned that signing the bill would take the last bit of hope from the poor and middle class, he jumped at the opportunity to sign it now.

“I’ll sign this today rather than having a big formal ceremony in two weeks when we were going to do it. I didn’t want you folks to say I wasn’t keeping my promise. I’m keeping my promise,” Trump said. “I’m signing it before Christmas. I said the bill would be on my desk before Christmas. And you are holding me literally to that. We did a rush job today. It’s not fancy. But it’s the Oval Office.”

The law, officially known as the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, received no Democratic support and has been hailed by the Republican Party as the biggest legislative achievement for Trump and his band of congressional deplorables because it basically benefits them and their rich donors. These fuckers had a full-on hootenanny on the White House South Lawn shortly after the bill passed.

A CNN poll released Tuesday found that 55 percent of Americans oppose the tax bill, while 33 percent are in favor.

Trump was heard yelling, “Who gives a shit about that 55 percent, since they didn’t vote for me anyway!” before hoping into the presidential limo and spitting chew into an empty soda can.

OK, he didn’t yell that. And, fine, he doesn’t chew tabacky, but I hate this man, so, there’s that.

DISCUSSION

Literally an hour or so after it passed the owner/ceo of my company sent out an email talking about how its going to save the company $100k in taxes next year and how it will allow us to grow and hire more and because of that we are all getting a $300 bonus. I cant even be happy about it because a) it just goes to show that my companies owners is a Trump voter and I need to find a new job and b) the tax bill works for rich people like him but fucks us all in the long run.
