Trump isn’t the disease; he’s the symptom- of everything from the rise of evangelical fanatics to Fox News as the propaganda organ of the Republican Party, to the takeover of the national news distribution system by idiot kid libertarians of Silicon Valley’s greed-driven monopolies.
Trump’s cabinet believe he is not mentally fit and anyone reduced to Tweeting “I’m a genius” may be wearying of his self-made chaos. That’s not great cause for joy, but I’ll take what I can get.
Trump’s 1st year in office confirmed he’s a megalomaniac with authoritarian ambitions. That was nothing! Trump’s second year opens with the realization that Trump’s only remaining strategy for political and legal survival is his criminal willingness to discredit the Rule of Law.
Trump is not just talking about prosecuting journalists. He is taking legal steps to silence them. On Thursday, a White House attorney sent a (failed but nevertheless scary) cease-and-desist letter to publishing company Henry Holt. Trump is our Putin.
Trump’s political survival depends on neutralizing any institution that challenges his power… including the Rule of Law itself.
Will the GOP go along? You bet. Thus in 2018 they must not merely be beaten, but destroyed for the sake of everything every sane decent American loves.
He’s Not Trump Anymore: He’s The V.S.G. (VERY STABLE GENIUS) & Armed with Nukes
