I've been jaded listening to political garbage for years. Then, just the other day, some news article reported that a Congressional Representative was able to appoint a representative to represent HIM in congress because he was afraid of Covid 19 and wanted to stay home.
Think about it.
Someone whose job is to represent a group of people in the country's governmental decision making crowd has HIMSELF a representative in that crowd. A Representative for the Representative of the people.
So... yeah. The word "garbage" fits, don't you think?
