The Trump administration has taken political divisiveness to a whole new level in the wake of the government shutdown.
After earlier unveiling a new attack campaign ad against Democrats accusing them of complicity in any murder committed by an illegal alien, it appears that Trump’s attempt to pin the blame for the shutdown on the Democrats extends to even the pre-recorded messages used by the White House at its switchboard while the usual operators are on a mandated furlough.
One Facebook user, Kathi Rendall, discovered the horrendous politicization of the outgoing message when they called into the White House and were so horrified by what they heard that they recorded and posted it for all to share in the shame of what our government has become in the last year.
Ms. Rendall commented on the video recording by expressing her outrage at the audacity of the President using taxpayer dollars to send a blatant political message:
“This is the official White House number. YOU PAY FOR THIS.
YES, it’s real. I personally taped it while calling.”
Hopefully, White House ethics lawyers will be getting ready to field the lawsuits that will surely be filed over such an overt misuse of government resources for political gain.
You have to hand it to President Trump. Whenever you think he can’t possibly sink any lower, he reaches deep inside his decrepit excuse of a soul and scales new depths.
