Snarling Donald Trump, after being selected as President by the Electoral College, brought one undeniable quality to the office – a lifetime of bullying people below him. During his career as a failed gambling czar and corporate welfare king, deceitful Donald bullied his employees, (many of whom are undocumented), consumers, and creditors (profitably jumping ship before he bankrupted his shareholders).
Well, I can only hope that with some of those now released, there will be some sewing circles and produce as many straight-jackets for this cabal as are needed.

Ralph, as I discussed with you at the Unitarian Church [Portland Maine] during your 2000 campaign event — the seminal and causal cancer in America includes; 1. the massive corporate taxes of dumping “Negative Externality Costs” on our country and our world environment (as Nobel economist William Nordhaus exposed in his recent Nobel address), 2. the vast ‘inequality of income and wealth’ in GINI Coefficients — which birthed the whole “Occupy WS Movement”, and (3) lastly the fact that our former democracy is now the first Disguised Global (crony) Capitalist EMPIRE in human history, which is only nominally HQed in, and merely ‘posing’ as, our formerly promising and sometimes progressive country (PKA) America.
“We can’t be an Empire”
IMHO — You and Bernie are HUUUUUUGE in terms of; educating people about, ‘exposing’, confronting, fighting, and peacefully over-coming this first in world history, and damned Disguised Global Capitalist EMPIRE and the not-so-well ‘disguised’ (but disgusting) faux-Emperor Trumpius.
Just by watching these video clips from the most radical film that Americans were ever allowed to only briefly see, “Bulworth” [Warren Beatty 1998] you will humorously (but accurately) see what the fictional and truth-telling (D CA) Senator Bulworth says about both these “Vichy Parties” of the EMPIRE in answer to a black woman in a South LA Church, when she asks “Are you saying that the Democratic Party doesn’t care about the African American community?” during Bulworth’s campaign speech:
There are many more clips of “Bulworth” and for all millennials (who know how to get the movie “Bulworth” on internet TV sticks, boxes, and various software tricks) watching the FULL MOVIE of “Bulworth” would very likely inform the under 40 young voters of how important to get out and vote for Bernie, Warren, Beto, or whatever serious LEFT LEFT LEFT Progressive Dem gets the nomination!.
Right now probably less than 1% of the most important under 40 year old voters have ever even seen “Bulworth” Seeing “Bulworth” IMHO would do more to send Emperor Trumpius packing in 2020 than most anything else that could possibly be done!!!
Yup that is right
It is hard not to be suspicious here. Why so many changes? Is it a good-ole-boy game where as many as possible Trump advocates are getting some sort of under the table bennie by just being on the job for a short while? Like perhaps a full years salary for two months on the job?
“Why do they slink away and stay silent ?”
Because for decadesnTrump and the GOP have operated like the organized crime syndicate that they are.
Anybody who still doesn’t understand ? Watch the award winning 1972 movie called THE GODFATHER !
No doubt they are paid off, just like his wife and his prostitutes.
Beto? Left?. Granted he is a bit left of Charles Kock on some social issues but when it comes to Global (crony) Capitalist EMPIRE, it will be difficult to separate the two with a thin sheet of paper.
Check out is history and his voting record.
Speaking as a teacher and public school employee for many years, what more disgusting examples of people in leadership roles could we have for children? I don’t think the platitudes that are mouthed in schools and churches are going to cover this level of human dysfunction.
Hi alan385—LOL I sampled a few of those you tube looks. and LOL, I need t see them all. Thank you : )
Isn’t it obvious? If the people Trump has fired had any guts or integrity in the first place, they would never have gone to work for him.
I wonder if he gives them Trump Stock or some such thing… and then again, he is so cheap and rude he would not pay his workers and had over 3500 suits that he was involved in. I just have to wonder if the payoffs were related to abortions…but I guess even then the fundamentalists would still love him…
Why Do They Slink Away; Stay Silent?
Fear of their rightwing ‘friends’
Fear of breaking the Cult ideology
Fear of not finding work again.
Fear, Fear, Fear
Desperate people are more willing to hold crappy jobs and put up with harsh treatment.
After all, that’s why we even have an unemployment rate- to keep people desperate.
