For some strange reason, President Trump and members of his administration seem to have a bizarre need to take whatever happens to be wandering through their normally empty brains and splatter it all over social media. Twitter, of course, is Trump’s favorite medium, probably because it’s limited to 140 characters and that’s about as long as Donnie can manage to focus on anything.
This time, however, the West Wing culprit who got stomped down on Twitter is Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who posted this Sunday evening:
What would your family do w/ a $4,000 raise from the President’s tax cut plan? REPLY & I’ll share your family’s story in the press briefing
— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) October 23, 2017
The way Trump is fond of insulting countries with nuclear weapons–i.e. North Korea–I’m guessing most of us would probably say the plans for our $4,000 (don’t hold your breath waiting for it to materialize) would be build a fallout shelter or book passage to a remote island as far away from the United States as possible.
But as many of us learned a long time ago, you need to be careful what you ask others to respond to on social media. Fortunately for us, Sanders is too brain-dead to know that, and the responses she got are freaking awesome. Take a look:
I'd buy a burial plot since the cut you'll make to Medicare to give the "raise" will likely kill my Mom.

You mean a fantasy "$4000 raise?" Hell, why not tell people it's a $10K raise. I mean, if you're going to lie, tell a whopper. LOL

I'd donate my $4K to that Gold Star Family Trump promised $25K to.

Since my family isn't part of the wealth class, we'll use our 13 cents to purchase a new bandaid. Thank you.

Your claim is false, but since you're asking, I'd donate that $4000 to any Democratic Presidential candidate running in 2020.

I'll have to ask my health insurance company if they accept imaginary Trump Bux.

My military family would prefer less debt for our grandchildren. Trump profited enough already by avoiding military service.

I'd use it to build a bunker that we're going to need when Trump launches the nukes. #NotMyPresident
