Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction.And this is certainly one of those times, according to Rep.David Cicilline(D-R.I.).
On Thursday, the Democrat used the House floorto compare life under PresidentDonald Trumpsadministration to The Upside Down the creepy parallel universe in Netflixs supernatural drama Stranger Things.
Standing next to a sign of the shows logo that was tweaked to read Trump Things, he lamented how under Trump right is wrong, up is down, black is white.
Cicilline cited the inconsistent decisions that the White House has made in the four weeks since Trumps inauguration such as the signing of an executive order to spend $20 billion on a border wall, while Flint, Michigan, still goes without clean drinking water. This is not a TV show, this is real life, he said.
We have a president unlike any we have ever known, he continued. And like Mike, Dustin, Lucas and Eleven, we must remain focused on the task at hand, and hold this administration accountable, so we can escape from our own version of The Upside Down.
