As the Trump presidency wallows in failure, water carriers for the regime are forced to morph their rhetoric. It’s impossible to articulately defend the president at this point, so rather than offer substantive praise for his actions, his supporters are forced to the opposite end of the spectrum, employing absurd North Koreaesque compliments for their glorious leader.
FOX’s Jesse Waters has now taken the ridiculous to a new low:
Fox News' @jessebwatters just now: "Donald Trump's family has done more for this country than any Democratic elected official."

The statement is as dishonest as it laughable. The nepotistic Trump administration still has zero accomplishments to its gaudy, obnoxious name. Democrats, by comparison, are historically responsible for Civil Rights, women’s right to vote, Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, worker rights, and the establishment of NATO amongst many others.
Unwilling to let Watters’s ludicrous statements go unanswered, Democratic Representative Ruben Gallego of Arizona took to Twitter to mock him:
Totally remember the Trump brothers laying down suppressive fire for me in Anbar. https://t.co/P2O7ysBIGA

Ruben, a veteran, is referring to the Al Anbar Governorate of Iraq, where he served. His point is clear. Watters comments are an insult to him and any other Democratic official who has served in the military. No member of the Trump family has been brave enough to pick up a weapon to defend this country and in fact the patriarch himself notoriously dodged the draft.
Watters’s comments are utter nonsense, and such blatant mendacity demonstrates just how desperate Trump supporters are to shore up his eroding public image.
