What He Really Thinks

First, sure, he's a dumbass. And we can hope he's a one-off, a particularly egregious fluke...but...probably not. After Trump got elected, it hit me: his base voted for equally awful George W. Bush...but probably thought he was a little too, you know, soft and sophisticated.

Which means...we either have to outvote them...or accept that a fair number of our fellow citizens are way too comfortable with casual fascism...well, for my tastes.

Have a good weekend.

To Reiterate

Wrapped in the flag...carrying the cross. And a wall. Hope we can still learn from history...

OK, The Battle Lines Are Drawn

For small fingers, small credit: Trump HAS managed to turn the GOP into his personal cult, and it's clear the midterms will be a referendum on the Trump Cult.

Persuasion won't work, they've gone all in with their preferred bigot...we either outvote them or accept that we live amongst brain-dead racists.

Remember, Trump won the election but lost the vote. He's in office on a technicality.

And...lord knows what Mueller will reveal, but that will only further solidify the cultists, for whom Trump -- fucking Donald J. Trump -- will be their martyr. Only martyr I'm aware of with dictator chic taste (Saddam Hussein had the same preferences, but did anyone give a shit about him?).

Game on.

Substantively, A Nothing Burger, But...

As a statement about style, Trump's embrace of authoritarianism is worth noting. History will not be kind to him or his loyalists, which happen to include most if not all of the Republican Party.

There's no excuse for defending him.

The Grand Meeting Of The Child Minds...

Can hardly wait...and I guess there's nothing that can claim to be so much more important that it requires missing the encounter of the two dipshits.

Back tomorrow.
