Good ol’ ‘Guam Tipping’ Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson from Georgia can always be relied on for a colorful turn of phrase.
Johnson celebrated the New Year by trashing President Donald Trump and his supporters at the Atlanta NAACP Jubilee. After claiming that America elected “an authoritarian, anti-immigrant, racist strongman” as president, he followed up with a swipe at Trump supporters.
"Donald Trump and his Make America Great Again followers, who want to return America back to a time when white men and white privilege were unchallenged, and when minorities and women were in their place," Johnson said. "These folks now control the highest office of the land. Donald Trump supporters are older, less educated, less prosperous, and they are dying early. Their life spans are decreasing, and many are dying from alcoholism, drug overdoses, liver disease, or simply a broken heart caused by economic despair."
Is dying from a “broken heart” better than a death by drowning in Guam if the island were to “tip over and capsize” as Johnson once feared?
Hank's predictions leave a lot to be desired.
