Hey, Heartland America

I trust you noticed that the Congress has now agreed to allow coal companies to dump their waste into your streams again. And I trust that you noticed that just today the guy you voted for rescinded part of a law which regulates banks, because, he said,

“We expect to be cutting a lot out of Dodd-Frank, because frankly I have so many people, friends of mine, that have nice businesses and they can’t borrow money,” he continued. “They just can’t get any money because the banks just won’t let them borrow because of the rules and regulations in Dodd-Frank. So we’ll be talking about that in terms of the banking industry.”

I assume you’re not one of his banking friends because they all live in NYC and you don’t.

I imagine you don’t know a lot of people who got swept up in Trump’s anti-immigrant executive order last weekend, and particularly not any one of the 60,000 to 100,000 people whose visas were revoked by it. And I suppose you really don’t mind him bullying the President of Mexico, telling him maybe our Army should go down there to help get rid of Mexico’s “bad hombres.” But hey, how about him trying to back out of a deal the US had made with Australia? It’s no big thing to break your country’s word, right?

Thanks for nothing, you guys.
