A new year may be ahead of us, but the memory of the last one is still fresh in most of our minds. One for the history books, 2018 is just another blemish on our country’s reputation. Here are some of America’s most embarrassing political moments of 2018.
When Melania Wore This
The First Lady made waves when she chose to wear this jacket with the words “Really Don’t Care Do U?” written across the back on her way to visit immigrant children who’d been thrown in detention centers. Separated from their parents at the border, the response was an overwhelming yes.

The GoFundMe Page For The Wall
Veterans are living on the streets, Flint is still without drinkable water, and Louisiana still hasn’t recovered from Hurricane Katrina yet people are donating their money to build a goddamn wall. It took just days to collect millions towards a cause that won’t ever be approved. This just goes to show how a racist agenda will always take precedence over helping our own. If that’s not terribly embarrassing then I don’t know what is.
Brett Kavanaugh’s Nomination
Even after it became quite clear that Brett Kavanaugh didn’t belong on the Supreme Court or in any kind of power position, he remained supported by our dear president. Numerous women came forward accusing the man of rape and sexual assault, but as usual, no one cares what women have to say. Even his unprofessional and guilt-
