What do you get when you replace a brain surgeon with a chiropractor, or the pilot of a B-1 bomber with a school bus driver? Well, you get Donald Trump trying to be the leader of the free world. It’s been less than two weeks, but it’s been as incessantly awful as the year and a half since he declared for president. Not just in New York, where the tragedy’s first act is playing out to disbelieving reviews in this scheduled five-act play, barring re-election, but here.
"But facts are irrelevant anymore."
But of course facts do matter as much as ever. Take facts about climate change. The right-wing strategy is fatally flawed which is obvious to everyone outside the right-wing bubble. It is on a suicidal course. It is running head on into the laws of chemistry and physics. The right-wing is surely doomed. But so is civilization if people who do care about facts cannot take control.
As long as the right wings controls the media it is not doomed. Controlling media means the right can blame its evil actions on anybody or anything it wants and get away with it.
Investigative journalism did it's job did it? It told the truth behind the devastation to the middle class and working class by globe trade agreements and the subprime mortgage fiasco? I don't know what planet you are on but if you are in denial that you aren't falling like Rome then all hope is lost.
"What do you get when you replace a brain surgeon with a chiropractor, or the pilot of a B-1 bomber with a school bus driver? Well, you get Donald Trump trying to be the leader of the free world".
What did we get when we replaced an honest and intelligent man with a former corporal and social failure? Hitler.
By the way; bus-drivers are more useful to the community than B-1 pilots.
I am glad to see there is a strong reaction and repulsion to Trump. This will truly test the resilience of the free world as we know. Trump's plan to turn this country into a developing nation where a very small elite rules and there is not democracy will not work. Americans love to fight everything. Is build into the DNA. Trump underestimates the potential of the major pricks in Washington and other powerful groups that opposes his evil agenda. America hates social unrest and will do anything to stop the angry mob. What about the electoral college, aren't they designed to protect us from a situation like this? Why aren't we putting more pressure so they do their job?
