WASHINGTON (Just Laugh) – Despite not being directly stated by the presidential communications powerhouse that is the combination of Sean Spicer’s verbal podium rage and Donald Trump’s late night Twitter rage, after 56 consecutive days of self-destructive behavior threatening personal liberties, democracy, and the fate of the free world, the actions of the Trump administration have suggested without equivocation that the Office of the President of the United States is in fact best left to the states themselves.
“The budget for the Department of Defense ends the depletion of our military and pursues peace through strength,” said the White House, failing to account that the United States already spends more than the next eight largest countries on the planet combined on its armed forces.
“No, no, no, no, no, hold on, hold on…” said White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer in a rambling manner that would have gotten him points docked had he been speaking in a high school debate competition and not representing the President of the United States on the world’s stage.
“I think that is a matter that’s best left to the states,” Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos said in relation to regulations guaranteeing education to students with disabilities, but can just as easily be expanded to also include the entire administration of the inept, handsy billionaire who jokingly selected her to lead the nation with regards to education in the first place.
As the incoming Trump administration continues to make its best efforts to dismantle most roles of the federal government by deprioritizing healthcare, education, scientific research, environmental protections, support for the arts, renewable energy, mass transit, affordable housing, childhood literacy, clean drinking water, international diplomacy, after-school snacks for kids and meals for the elderly, humanitarian aid, public broadcasting, and god knows how many other genuinely worthwhile uses of taxpayer funding, it ultimately raises the question of whether the role of the president itself should be a government function or would serve better as a power returned to the hands of the individual states.
