As Long As Trump’s In Office This Dark Cloud Never Lifts

Perhaps it doesn’t after, either. But at least we’ve got a chance…

Trump’s put out a little video saying he’s now “outraged” about the violence on Capitol Hill he and his minions personally triggered, and then egged on. Which made no one happy. Not those for whom it was too little, too late. And neither those for whom it was a betrayal, since they felt they were only doing Trump’s bidding in the first place.

[Trump’s] presidency has been a harrowing survey of the things that are possible if nobody stops you.”

And yes, the next two weeks will be extraordinarily perilous, because since when has Trump not changed his mind a million times? It’s why he lost the presidency: a lot of people actually like his policies. They like that he makes it OK to be dark and angry and even racist, while at the same time giving you the ability to say you are the “least” of those of anybody, and anyone who says differently is judging you unfairly. But having him in charge every single damn day was just too much crazy.
