NOT An April Fool’s Joke: Trump Administration Wants To Defund The ‘Special Olympics’!

When I saw this on my Google News feed this morning my immediate reaction was that it was an extremely premature April Fool’s Joke. I had a chuckle (though I do not like early April Fool’s) and was ready to move on when I saw that there were multiple stories, different media outlets, about this.

I was NOT an April Fool’s joke! Sacré ‘bloody’ bleu. The Trump Administration was serious. Deadly serious.

Aahhh!

The ‘Special Olympics‘! That is a pretty beloved, one could even say ‘revered’, organization.

Nothing is no longer sacred. Everything is trivialized.

But, I do know a couple of things. You do NOT mess with the disabled. They have a lot of support & clout — as they should. And, those that benefit from the ‘Special Olympics’ invariably have large circles of family, friends & followers that have VOTES — real votes. This is not be forgotten — though everybody, outside of the Trump Administration, is 110% certain that this will never fly. That Congress would not let this happen. They know where their bread is buttered.
