Trump put forward a “skinny budget” this week and it was the first time we’ve seen a president actually try to make government smaller in a longgg time.
It was definitely a breath of fresh air and Trump made it clear that agencies like the EPA that have been out of control the past 8 years are finally going to be reined in.
You can check out more about Trump’s budget here.
Democrats have made it clear that they don’t care about budgets and the $20 trillion debt we currently have tells you everything you need to know about that.
Remember when celebrities freaked out about Trump cutting the NEA and other arts budgets?
Looks like Trump didn’t care very much because he’s sticking to his guns on that in his proposed budget.
Guess what happened almost immediately after Trump put forward his budget full of sensible cuts.
Hollywood celebs lost their minds.
Celebrities took to Twitter Thursday to bemoan President Donald Trump’s 2018 budget proposal, which, among other items, eliminates the budgets for the National Endowment for the Arts and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Here come the brainiacs…
Yes, every morning, single mothers will wake up and thank god that their 50 cents a year for Big Bird can now go to an F-35. https://t.co/hPN12pBoWv

After all the wars are fought what remains are people, art, nature and culture. Trump can try but he cannot cut us out of the picture.

Do they really not understand that getting rid of the NEA doesn’t actually delete art from the face of the earth?
You have to try really hard to be this uninformed.
This is the liberal mindset though. Government is the only way to get things done.
It’s almost as if they are unaware the private sector even exists.
Maybe we should ask single moms if they’d rather have educational television programming or more nukes. https://t.co/2i7oiCHBB8

Trump’s budget cuts 3200 EPA workers but adds 1500 ICE agents. America will be getting dirtier and nastier in many ways. Blue States: RESIST

It’s sad that so many people think this way and believe this nonsense.
Cuts have to be made. It’s basic math. Some cuts are going to be uncomfortable. That’s just how it goes.
Big Bird can stay. The American taxpayer just might not pay for him anymore.
Hollywood isn’t going to win. I wonder when they are going to figure that out.
