" "And you've seen the stories about some of these animals. They don't want to use guns, because it's too fast and it's not painful enough. So they'll take a young, beautiful girl, 16, 15, and others, and they slice them and dice them with a knife, because they want them to go through excruciating pain before they die. And these are the animals that we've been protecting for so long. Well, they're not being protected any longer, folks."
That's a story the president of the United States told at a rally in Ohio on Tuesday night. It's a creepy story, one that mixes unnecessarily detailed savagery with the image of "a young, beautiful girl." "

"What Trump said in Ohio on Tuesday night was not normal. What he said to the Boy Scouts was not normal. What he's doing to his attorney general is not normal.
So I dropped that other column and wrote this one. And I'll do that again, and again, and again as often as necessary, and I don't care if I sound like a broken record.
Because no American should accept any of this sadistic nonsense as normal."

I'm not buying the recent "poor Sessions" narrative. It's pure cruelty, backed by the backwards looking GOP.
At every public event, whether standing in front of the CIA Wall of Honor or the Boy Scouts of America, it's only about him ("that I can tell you, believe me."). There's a reason a role for a "main-stream" free press was included in the Constitution, and they should be even more critical than they're accused of. This authoritarian thug is exactly the type of occurence the founding fathers were concerned about. They never could have imagined it would be a corrupt billionaire treating the country as if it were an extension of his private business.
There's a good possibility he's about to drag the country through a constitutional crisis. The ironic up side is he can't help himself, and will unintentionally bring an end to this madness of his own making.
Reince is now out. Replacement? Retired General and Homeland Security Secretary Kelly...

This guy, "The Mooch"...his wife just filed for divorce, he has been fired after only ten days, and has managed to become yet another national laughing stock.

That would take "Kahunas", yes...
I am one of those who believe that Obama's Presidency was a lost opportunity.
He was hanging ten on election night and then immediately cut back.
I think he should have gone to the country (without pretension), like Trump is pretending to do.
One can ask for understanding without agreement.
For example, I usually do not agree, politically,* with RG,
but what is more is that I really do not understand him.
*architecturally ...and more importantly for everyone here, I assume, it's a different matter.
Obama's major accomplishment was to get elected; the unacknowledged bias against a black man, as much as anything else -- though certainly abetted by his own reluctance to engage -- prevented him from making the kinds of advances promised, and hoped for.
