Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Bigotry; violent incitement.]

"I'm more excited to vote for Trump than I was to vote for Romney-Ryan. I think you're more likely to get change. I don't know if it's gonna be a good change, but you gotta break eggs to make an omelette."—Republican Representative from Kentucky Thomas Massie, explaining his support for Donald Trump.

The unfathomable, breathtaking privilege to be so cavalier about supporting Trump because he'll change things up, even if it's not "good change." The lack of empathy is astounding.

Trump is an inveterate bigot who has tacitly called for the assassination of Hillary Clinton and has called President Obama the founder of IS, and this guy is all glib chuckles about how excited he is to vote for Trump because he'll "change" things. Yes. Like changing our democracy into a fascist regime. For fuck's sake.
