How deranged must Washington State law makers be to legislate against someone on the ballot paper? Surely voters can self determine whether tax returns are an election issue without having the state pass laws to try to prevent it. How scared should they be? The silly thing is that Hillary Clinton took 54% of the vote in Washington in 2016. Some 1.742mn votes. 500,000 more than Trump. That’s a healthy margin. Ironically the law would protect only those who wouldn’t vote for him in the first place.
One can be critical of many things with respect to Trump. Grabbing p*ssies was on the 2016 ballot paper. He still won. Yet the Democrats show themselves to be the party that doesn’t believe voters are intelligent enough to make their own decisions. Talk about peak Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS).
Of course Washington wants other states to take its lead. However why not just come with superior policies and better candidates to fight for the 2020 election? If Trump doesn’t live up to expectations he will be booted from office anyway. Might as well fight fair. This does nothing but shore up his base.
