The Trump Era: No One Can Stay Above the Fray


The Trump Era: No One Can Stay Above the Fray

Mike Lofgren

"Shape without form, shade without color, paralyzed force, gesture without motion." — T.S. Eliot, The Hollow Men (1925)

It has been six years since I last saw Capitol Hill and the Republican Party in the rearview mirror. Ever since, I have been relentlessly critical of the GOP because, as nearly as I could determine, it is contemptuous of anyone who is not wealthy, runs government institutions into the ground, and plays to the America people’s worst instincts.


The writer’s take on the DNC throwing Bernie Sanders under the bus is so far off base as to be laughable. Having said that, he’s spot on about how warped the GOP has become. History will not look kindly on the Repugs.


Having Sanders, who always polled as beating Trump, dismissed by the DNC, is hardly laughable.
