The internship program sounds like a great idea, but once again, the chances of something being well-implemented by KCMO city hall is iffy at best.
First, Lucas interning with Kay Barnes and thinking "hey I can do this job" was clearly an inaccurate and self-delusional conclusion on his part. This administration has been one disaster after another.
And the thought of young people learning how public service is supposed to work by interning with people like Melissa Robinson should be enough to make anyone's hair catch on fire. Getting the interns started in the WRONG direction is worse than no program at all.
Ready!
FIRE!
Aim!
Maybe the young people can take this opportunity to learn how NOT to do things.

Saturday Night Live (SNL) cast hates successful Asians.

I believe that is called racism.


Mitt Romney is an out of touch, rich douchebag. Its funny he was booed as he deserves it.

Diaper Joe Biden is costing the lives of young American soldiers by playing politics regarding the U.S. Troop withdrawal.

President Trump finally was getting us out of Afghanistan after 16 years of Bush and Obama war policies and had set May 1 (yesterday) as the FINAL troop withdrawal.

Now Diaper Joe continues the needless bloodshed as he wants to be a tough guy.
