The dull-orange-menace, Donald Trump, spent his time this week calling for his followers to “liberate” the states that are not cooperating with his attempt to rule by fiat.
Thousands of people have showed up at state capitals, many of them armed, some wearing MAGA hats, some flashing white power signs, some carrying flags: Confederate flags, Nazi flags, T-Rump flags all demanding that the governors in their states bow before their petty little dictator.
We have been hearing people on Fox News, tell us that they would rather die than let the economy suffer, that it is worth the cost of 1% or 2% or 3% of the lives of American people, veterans, grandmothers and grandfathers, children.
They want to be able to go out and play, let the body count rise.
It is insanity, and it makes me very sad.
These are people who cannot see past the end of their nose, they have no empathy, they are not patriots.
These people cannot tell the truth from a lie.
They cannot admit that they have been wrong about Donald Trump from the start, my own aunt, a woman I have always respected, who is not dumb by any means, told me she thinks Donald Trump is doing a great job, and thinks that the questions he is asked by reporters at his daily screed are ridiculous. She is unwilling to admit that this criminal regime is now responsible for deaths of tens of thousands of Americans, people who would not have dies if we had acted sooner, and there are tens of thousands more who will die before this is over, but because their vanity will not allow them to admit that they are wrong, they will do nothing to hold the Fake President accountable.
I never imagined we could get here.
I have always known that Americans are by and large ignorant about our role in the world, the heavy hand we play in developing countries in order to consume all their goods and exploit their labor.
I never had much hope of trying to burst that bubble, but I never thought they would let a bankrupt, craven, draft-dodging fool destroy the entire country.
America needs to be liberated, but it is not the people of Michigan and Minnesota, Virginia and Maryland who need to be liberated, it is all of the American people who need to be freed from the tyranny of this vapid mad-man Donald Trump.
There are 198 days until the election, that is 198 days too long.
