Misadventures of a minority-elect President 75

Chronicling the misadventures of our minority-elect President’s alternate reality, alternative facts and the miscreants that comprise his administration so you don’t have to:

Pondering over whether or not we’re willing to let Trump evolve – though judging from what we’ve seen so far he should have been removed long ago, more on Trump’s disingenuous tax cut scam, Trump’s chaotic presidency as seen through all his ignorant Twitter rants, Trump’s first 100 days show that despite his best efforts, we’re not in Nazi Germany, more on Trump’s ongoing use of False Flags to justify committing war crimes, Trump’s race against the clock to actually do something relevant, Trump team resorts to theatrics because they’re too corrupt and ignorant to actually govern, more on Trump’s tax cut scam that helps him and his family and his flip flop on NAFTA, Trump still lying about job creation and jobs going overseas, every day seems to present ethical challenges for our illegitimate minority-elect President, the dubious list of Trump’s accomplishments in his first 100 days is quite revealing – as is his aversion to transparency, the education of Donald Trump, White House continues its Obama Derangement Syndrome, more on Trump’s objectively pernicious first 100 days and much more.

We have learned one crucial lesson since January 20 – we are not Germany in 1933. I shared the fear that Trump represented an existential threat to American democracy. I am not convinced those fears have been entirely allayed. But the first hundred days of the Trump presidency have demonstrated that American institutions and traditions of democratic constitutionalism are not as easily “deconstructed” as Steve Bannon might have hope.

We should be proud of the resistance shown by our civil society. Ordinary citizens have taken to the streets in record numbers; we have confronted our representatives in town-hall meetings; we have flooded members of Congress with letters and emails; we have organized ourselves into groups such as Daily Action, mobilizing the energies of millions unwilling to quietly acquiesce in the destruction of American democracy.
