Because half of Trump's schtick is just badmouthing Obama. He doesn't want to lose that edge.

The Trump administration on Tuesday announced up to $12 billion in emergency relief for farmers hurt by the presidentís trade war, moving to insulate food producers from looming financial losses that would be a direct result of President Trumpís policies.

Oops....



Sounds like the government picking winners and losers. Thought that was a no-no. #MAGA

This current version of the GOP is the epitome of hypocrisy.

It would be bad optics having farmers riding their tractors into Washington during the midterms.

Who says that won't happen anyway. They've done it before. Their crops have already been rotting for months in some parts of the country, with no farm laborers available to harvest. Now their crops are too expensive to sell to the markets they're trading with.

And the government isn't just standing there with cash. There is no mechanism in place to get the money (which doesn't exist anyway) to the farmers in a way commensurate with the losses they're sustaining.

So we pay twice. We pay with the loss of business to cheaper food markets in other countries, then we pay the farmers the government screwed out of their business deals with nonexistent taxpayer dollars in exchange for...what? Food nobody will get to eat?

The more I think about this, the more certain I am we will see tractors in the DC streets.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Lately righties have been diagnosing us lefties with TDS.

Is it too early for us to start diagnosing some with AO-CDS?
