Best solution for drug crisis

I am so impressed with our president and his solution to the opioid epidemic. After appointing an expert task force on the drug crisis headed by former governor and loyal supporter Chris Christie to study this issue and look for answers, he has cut through the rhetoric to propose “the death penalty for all drug dealers.” There were some other proposals that will get a little money, maybe. But, the man is a genius to put his finger on the perfect answer.

Why, just think, in our county jail right now, there are at least 50 inmates who qualify for this ultimate sentence. Expand that to the entire country! Simple, effective. Scare ‘em straight! May I suggest that we do not stop there: Add in all the pimps and pedophiles. Snuff them all! Problem solved! I am so proud that this man is our president!
