Breaking: Treasury throws founder of the Democratic Party off $20 bill, replaces with gun-toting Republican

 

Opinions on the Harriet Tubman $20 bill seem to be running generally positive, but there are some objections, beginning with a prominent self-professed fan of the portrait currently adorning the twenty, Donald Trump.

“Andrew Jackson had a great history and I think it’s very rough when you take somebody off the bill,” said Trump on Thursday morning’s Today Show.  “I think it’s pure political correctness. Been on the bill for many, many years and really represented somebody that was very important to this country.”

It should be noted that under the proposed Treasury redesign, Jackson will still be on the back of the bill, which would give Jackson fans a fifty-fifty chance of seeing him each time they pluck a twenty from their wallets.

“The backs of the $5 and $10 bills also will be redesigned over time to tell the story of civil rights for women and African-Americans, a marked departure from the current lineup of presidents and founding fathers—unchanged since 1928,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

“I think Harriet Tubman is fantastic,” Trump continued.  “I would love to leave Andrew Jackson and see if we can maybe come up with another denomination. Maybe we do the $2 or we do another bill.”

Former presidential candidate Dr. Ben Carson, now a supporter of Donald Trump, expressed similar sentiments in a Fox Business interview.

“Well, I think Andrew Jackson was a tremendous secretary — I mean a tremendous president,” said Carson.  “Andrew Jackson was the last president who actually balanced the federal budget, where we had no national debt.”

“I love Harriet Tubman,” Carson continued.  “I love what she did, but we can find another way to honor her. Maybe a $2 bill.”

Fox News host Greta van Susteren said the Obama Administration was acting “stupid for no reason” by changing the $20, although, like Trump, she spoke well of Harriet Tubman.

“You all know I’m a feminist, love to see women acknowledged for the great things they do to contribute to our nation, and Harriet Tubman did, and she deserves it,” said Van Susteren.

She was convinced the change on the twenty would “divide” and “stir up the country,” and suggested a better idea would be to create a new $25 bill with Tubman’s portrait on it.

“That’s the smart and easy thing to do. But no, some people don’t think [so] and would gratuitously stir up conflict in the nation. That is so awful, and yes, dumb,” van Susteren declared.

Trump: non-ideological outsider

Trump: non-ideological outsider

In the course of this long-running, tumultuous primary fight, one thing not a single voter has stood up and said is: “We need someone who can work the system and lobby the smoke-filled backrooms of a convention hall in order to gather the most delegates in the fourth round of voting!”

No. But millions have turned out and voted enthusiastically for a true political outsider. And while Donald Trump may not get the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the nomination, he is likely to get very close.

In any event, he is the only candidate left for whom it is mathematically possible. ~Charles Hurt

Unite or Die: Priebus Defies ‘Never Trump’ Movement

by Charlie Spiering

GOPStopObamaPIXRepublican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus wants Republicans to unite around the eventual nominee, disregarding the sentiment expressed by the coalition of conservatives who have vowed to never support Donald Trump.

“It is essential to victory in November that we all support our candidate,” Priebus said during his address to the RNC’s Spring Meeting in Florida this morning. “Politics is a team sport and we can’t win unless we rally around whoever becomes our nominee.”

Former Detective Builds Trump Sign on Roof Near Airport After Daughter Harassed at School

Donald Trump has a double digit lead in the Republican primary in Maryland, but the blue state is making many of his supporters hide their vote. But one retired police detective decided to fight back– in a “yuge” way — after his 12-year old daughter was bullied at school for backing the billionaire developer.

John Paprcka retired from DC’s Metropolitan Police Department earlier this year after being a police officer for 25 years. So he decided to use his new spare time to build the big TRUMP sign on his roof to boost support among Marylanders at arrivals. Det. Paprcka used his neighbor’s old decking and built individual, four foot tall letters. He then spray painted them orange and installed them on his roof. He also put a smaller version on his mailbox to catch the drive-by voters.
