According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, more than 115 Americans of an opioid overdose every day, and unsurprisingly, Trump has tasked a completely unprepared idiot with coming up with the remedy.
While speaking with a millennial forum, “U.S. Generation Next, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway unveiled her so-called solution to this alarming health crisis that sounds like an episode of “Sex In The City” meets Nancy Reagan’s ineffective “Just Say No” Republican idea to combat drug abuse in the 1980s. Namely – just eat ice cream and french fries.
Speaking of fentanyl, Conway said, “It has 50 times the potency of heroin, 100 times the potency of morphine. Folks are reading the nutrition labels, they won’t put any sugar in their body, they don’t eat carbs anymore, and they’re very very fastidious about what goes into their body and then you buy a street drug for five or ten dollars, it’s laced with fentanyl, and that’s it…
So I guess my short advice is, as somebody double your age: Eat the ice cream. Have the French fry. Don’t buy the street drug. Believe me, it all works out.”
Yeah. “It all works out.” Like when completely unqualified sycophants get tasked with “fixing” one of society’s most deadly health emergencies.
Leave it to Republicans to rehash their most ineffectual ideas. After all, Republicans aren’t a political party, they’re a cult hopelessly cling to an ideology, regardless of the real-world consequences. Republicans have no business being anywhere near the halls of power, much less making life and death decisions in a crisis.
Here’s how some on Twitter responded:
Conway’s ridiculous advice for battling addiction highlights, yet again, that Republicans are worse than useless. They’re dangerously dumb and, by the time we’ve finally expelled them from the seats of power, they will undoubtedly leave a trail of corpses behind.
This is why we resist. Everyone, please ensure your voter registration is valid. Every Republican must be voted out of office before they kill us all.
