Apparently ALL politicians are liars and crooks. They only care about themselves, holding on to power and making money. Many people who have made this claim to me also have said that they don’t follow politics which makes me wonder how they know that ALL politicians are liars and crooks who don’t care about the people they represent.

So many of us hoped for a moral victory and a healthy start towards the redemption of America by way of an election where all of the bad actors of the past 4 to 8 years would be convincingly pushed out of power and left to face embarrassment and whatever consequences they’ve earned for their straight up evil behavior.
