D.C. 'freedom' truckers threaten to abuse 911 system if Washingtonians don't stop flipping them off

We recently discovered that actor Rick Schroder—who famously portrayed a spoiled little kid in the ‘80s sitcom Silver Spoons—is reprising that role as part of the Washington, D.C., TruckNutz Convoy that’s fecklessly circling Washington in protest of rapidly fading COVID-19 mitigation mandates.  

Americans are paying scant attention to them, because Ukrainians are fighting real oppression in their country—and in a world where maternity hospitals are getting pulverized by Russian artillery, being asked to wear a slightly uncomfortable bit of polypropylene fiber over your face while you dash in to Piggly Wiggly to pick up a sheet cake hardly feels like a hill worth dying on anymore. Who knew?

Of course, like Clint Eastwood in the 1978 trucker comedy Every Which Way But Loose, these “protesters” are riding with a big orange ape—at least in spirit. The black heart of Trumpism still swirls about the Beltway like the last turd circling the last unplugged toilet at the tail end of a weekend Klan rally. MAGA is dying but, much like its animating force farce, it seems determined to spit rancid blood in your face as it gurgles its last gasps.
