It’s widely known across this nation that Donald Trump isn’t a liked man. Yes, he has his base of rabid, foaming at the mouth MAGA fucks who will support him to the death simply because he gives them a free pass to put their racism on display for the entire world to see.
But when it comes to the rest of us out here in the real world, we’re impatiently awaiting the day that Donald Trump’s reign of terror over this country is finally over.
However, in all our hatred for the “president” himself, it can be easy to forget that Donald’s administration is chock full of folks just as shitty as he is.
Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley made sure we all remembered just how monumentally fucked up Trump’s jockeys are as well.
According to a new report from Newsweek, O’Malley allegedly ran into acting Deputy Secretary of Department of Homeland Security Ken Cuccinelli at a pre-Thanksgiving shindig where he delivered a public shaming to the Trump crony so brutal that Cuccinelli ended up leaving the party early.
From the Newsweek report:
“According to one witness, Siobhan Houton Arnold, who tweeted about the incident, O’Malley ‘drove’ Cuccinelli out of the Dubliner, a Capitol Hill pub meant to be popular among Gonzaga High School graduates, a school both men had attended, graduating five years apart in the 1980s, according to The Washington Post.”
“Martin O’Malley just drove Ken Cuccinelli out of the Dubliner in DC w/ a passion-laced and shame-invoking tirade on behalf of immigrant refugee children!!!” Arnold said in her tweet.

O’Malley personally gave a similar recounting of the ordeal when speaking to the Washington Post:
“He said that when he spotted Cuccinelli, he unloaded his frustration at the Trump administration’s separation of migrant children from their parents and detention of immigrants in chain-link enclosures at the southern U.S. border.
“We all let him know how we felt about him putting refugee immigrant kids in cages — certainly not what we were taught by the Jesuits at Gonzaga,” O’Malley said in a text.
Cuccinelli, who narrowly lost the race for Virginia governor to Terry McAuliffe (D) in 2013, was an immigration hard-liner long before joining the Trump administration. (O’Malley, in contrast, was governor when Maryland approved driver’s licenses and in-state tuition for undocumented immigrants and has been an outspoken advocate for “dreamers.”)”
According to reports, the Trump administration official first attempted to move to a different area of the bar but was followed to his new spot by O’Malley who continued to loudly and publicly shame the DHC official about separating migrant families and locking brown babies in cages at our southern border. Eventually, several other patrons joined in on the heckling until the Trump official ultimately got up and left the event altogether.
We could all take a lesson here, folks. Don’t let these pieces of shit get comfortable.
