At a time when precise language has gone missing from the White House, how best to describe those loyal Republicans still dancing with the guy who brung them? You know, Jewish-Americans like economics guru Gary Cohn, who was reportedly “disgusted” with Trump’s smarmy apology for neo-Nazism and other anti-semitism, but stood by like window dressing while the venom was spewed. Political-Americans like Paul Ryan, who expressed his outrage vehemently but failed to mention the name of the Outrager-in-Chief. Female-Americans like his adviser/daughter Ivanka, who … well, you get the point.

On the subjects of collaboration and language: the Dem wing of the neolib/neocon Duopoly have been collaborators and leaders in the global capitalist empire at least since the end of WW2. An essential component of precise language is to be honest.
I guess this means money is the new form of honesty. Follow the money.
That is well and very accurately put.
Lynn Sherr has written a very good article here, including one of the best closing lines ever!
