If you raise your eyebrows every time Donald Trump makes one of his truly epic gaffes, they are level with your hairline right about now. At a rally in Tampa Tuesday, Trump said, “If you go out and you want to buy groceries, you need a picture or a card — you need ID.” Maybe in his alternate universe, where the Doritos are under glass and a guy with an AK-47 is guarding the beer.
I always have to show my ID at the commissary, but that's on post. Maybe there's an exclusive grocery store that only the 1% can use.

But why should this be surprising? This is a man who thought that health insurance costs $1.00 a year until you’re 21, then it cost $12.00, “and by the time you’re 70 you have a nice plan.” He seriously does not know that even if you buy groceries with a check (and nobody ever does) you don’t need ID because it’s scanned electronically and they either take it or they don’t — just like debit or credit cards.
And it’s not just him, this is the administration of the Out of Touch. Ben Carson, the one with a selfie of Jesus, who muses whether space aliens built the pyramids, complained that a low income apartment building was too nice, lacking ”only the pool tables.” Betsy DeVos sails around on her $40Million yacht while there are teachers on food stamps.

And still they vote for him. Eye eye eye. Don’t forget to get your passport stamped in the express line.
