Have you ever been …

The current White House resident, “on the feast of Stephen” (or Boxing Day for the Brits), tweeted that “most of the people not getting paid [i.e., federal workers] are Democrats.” I guess his animosity for the members of the “Deep State” (that is, the civil service workers who keep government running) has blurred them into the Democratic Party.

Maybe soon he will broaden his characterization to describe Democrats also as “enemies of the people.”

It is well that Democrats will have the majority in the House. If not for that, Trump might try to ram through a law criminalizing membership in the Democratic Party. Then future congressional hearings could include the query “Are you now or have you ever been a member of the Democratic Party?”
