Wrong point, and whataboutism (yawn).
It makes Republicans, who wore those shirts a couple of years ago, vulgar hypocrites for calling her out. Take the log out of their own eye and clean up their own act instead of acting all butthurt that "someone else is doing it too!"

Same applies to the horrible things the GOP did to libel and insult the Obamas ("He's not American" "She's a monkey"). It's not that any party is free of idiots, but when the idiocy is in the highest office of the land, is America so vulgar, so base, that we have to talk/tweet like petulant teens in order to communicate?

::
California Pro-Trump Candidate Is Fundraising Off Her Harassment Of A Transgender Woman

Jazmina Saavedra, a soap-hawking Trump fangirl who is running to represent California’s 44th Congressional District, is fundraising off a disgusting video of herself harassing and demeaning a transgender woman who was using a ladies’ restroom in a Denny’s earlier this week. Prior to this incident, Saavedra already had a track record of expressing anti-LGBTQ views.

Saavedra is among the handful of fringe politicians seeking office in California on the merits of their eagerness to act as sycophants for the president. Saavedra helped found the Latinos for Trump and the Make America Great Again, Inc. groups, and the Republican Party of Los Angeles County has endorsed Saavedra.

As reported by The Daily Beast, Saavedra harassed a transgender woman who was using a women’s restroom inside a Denny’s earlier this week. The video, which Saavedra uploaded to Facebook, depicts her harassing and humiliating the woman inside the restroom before the woman finally exits the restaurant. The Democratic incumbent Saavedra is challenging said she was “appalled by the treatment that this woman received.” (...)

(Reuters) - Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds signed into law on Friday a bill outlawing abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, which often occurs at six weeks and before a woman even realizes she is pregnant, and Reynolds acknowledged the likelihood of a court challenge.

that may (or may not) be the case, but their ideas are (which is fine)

see niskanen center

Libertarians Are Going Nowhere, But Their Ideas Are

Unless public opinion radically shifts, it feels like the Libertarian Party will mainly continue to offer voters a symbolic choice. Don’t get me wrong: I’m happy to have that choice, and it really would be nice to see people who genuinely value individual freedom elected to public office. But political realities being what they are, I’m going to hold off on exchanging my dollars for gold, and I’ll continue paying my income taxes.

So that’s the bad news for libertarians. Here’s the good news: the cause of advancing human liberty isn’t dependent on a niche political party. The goal of libertarianism as a philosophy – the preservation and expansion of individual liberties – has no partisan allegiance. Victory for the Libertarian Party is (thankfully) not requisite for libertarians to get more of what they want.

Advancing their agenda has, for libertarians, proved to be more a question of winning minds than elections. While “capital-L” Libertarians remain on the political margins, aspects of libertarian thought are appreciated by people of all political persuasions and often receive appeal for support. Although no Libertarian Party member has ever held a seat in Congress, moved into a governor’s mansion, or garnered more than four percent of the national vote, many long-held libertarian ideas have enjoyed incredible success, and others are still gaining momentum.

Same-sex marriage is now the law of the land, as has been interracial marriage. Support for legalizing marijuana is at an all-time high (pun intended), and ending the larger ‘war on drugs’ is an idea gaining currency, not only in the U.S. but worldwide. The draft is a thing of the past; the public is growing wary and weary of interventionist foreign policy. A plan to liberalize our immigration system, though stuck in legislative limbo, remains a priority for most Americans, and the United States remains a low-tax nation among countries in the developed world, especially when it comes to individual tax rates.

And not all the good news comes from the realm of politics. Americans have maintained and expanded on a culture of philanthropy, per-capita giving having tripled since the mid-1950s. The rise of social media and the internet has made it easier than ever for people to exchange ideas. Technology of all sorts has lowered prices for consumers and helped people live more productive lives. Even space exploration – until recently exclusively the purview of governments – is now within private reach.

None of this was or will be passed with legislation written or signed into law by a Libertarian politician. But that’s not what really matters. What really matters is that people are freer today to live the kinds of lives they want, peacefully, and without fear of persecution. Yes, there is still much that might be improved, at home and certainly abroad. But in a lot of ways, libertarians can rest happily knowing that their ideas are winning, even if their candidates are not.

Libertarians seem to be making the most inroads by infiltrating the Republican party.  As long as the duopoly reigns maybe changing the parties is another way to break the cycle of futility:

American Oligarchs...
Senators worry Koch brothers have too much influence in Trump administration

A group of Democratic senators is asking the administration to explain its ties to Charles and David Koch after the conservative, wealthy brothers bragged to donors that they were responsible for some of President Donald Trump’s policies his first year in office.

The senators sent a letter asking for information this week following the distribution of a report to the Seminar Network, a group of donors that fund Koch brothers political and policy efforts, that takes credit for more than a dozen new policies, including replacing the Clean Power Plan, which cut greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, revoking monument designations, streamlining permits for infrastructure projects, repealing limits on short-term health insurance plans; and implementing tax cuts.

“Americans have a right to know if special interests are unduly influencing public policy decisions that have profound implications for public health, the environment, and the economy,” the senators write in their letters obtained by McClatchy.

The letters launch a larger effort by Democratic lawmakers to reveal the extent of the Koch brothers’ influence in the Trump administration. (...)

The senators asked for emails, memos, meeting notes, correspondence and calendar items between federal employees and any employee, member or representative of Koch Industries or any of its subsidiaries or Koch-related groups, the Seminar Network, Americans for Prosperity, Americans for Prosperity Foundation, Freedom Partners, Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, Freedom Partners Action Fund, Concerned Veterans for America, the LIBRE Initiative, Generation Opportunity, i360, Mercatus Center, Texas Public Policy Foundation, Americans for Tax Reform, the Heritage Foundation and National Federation of Independent Business. It asks for the information by May 15.

In addition to Whitehouse, five other senators signed the letter: Elizabeth Warren and Edward Markey, both of Massachusetts, Tom Udall of New Mexico, Ron Wyden of Oregon and Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada.

Most farms in our town growing up had fairly crowded driveways, between the road vehicles and farm vehicles. Guess Montana farmers are wealthy enough (or fastidious enough) to spring for a separate vehicle barn.{#Wink}
