It’s hard to even imagine what the country would like right now if Trump wasn’t such an incompetent piece of shit. The GOP would probably be locking down various state and local government ownership for decades, while whispering sweet nothings about the evil Democrats into their cultists’ ears.

If nothing else, at least it’s nice to know I affiliate with the party that actually cares about fair governance and democracy.
