I consider myself to be fortunate. I’m not allergic to anything. I have no food allergies, no airborne allergies, no allergies of any kind.
I never break out in hives, get watery eyes and a runny nose, swollen airways, rashes, or gastrointestinal distress due to allergies.
Oh wait, I take that back. I do have a very specific allergic reaction that causes deep pain in my gut and makes me feel like I’m going to puke.
What is it that causes such a severe allergic reaction? Well, it must be due to watching too much news on the television and reading too many articles in the newspaper or on my iPhone’s news feed.
But there is a very specific trigger that really causes my intense distress. It’s whenever I see or hear Donald Trump, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, anyone in Trump’s cabinet, all of Trump’s sychophantic surrogates, and most GOP members of Congress.
There’s only one cure for this horrible allergy and it’s an injection of the Robert Mueller vaccine. The only problem is that the Mueller vaccine takes a long time to work and there are a lot of anti-vaxers in Congress and in the media (e.g., Fox News) who are claiming that the Mueller vaccine, like all other vaccines, is ineffective and can have negative side effects.
Written for today’s one-word prompt, “allergic.”
