I am not going to analyze or belabor the point here. What I am going to do is set it out, so that our readers remain informed as to the devastation Trump unleashes upon our body politic. Whatever else is happening, until Trump is out of office, by law, he is president of all of us. Keep that in mind while pondering his statement:
The Never Trumper Republicans, though on respirators with not many left, are in certain ways worse and more dangerous for our Country than the Do Nothing Democrats. Watch out for them, they are human scum!

In Trump’s eyes, there are two types of people, those who support him without question (since he demands “loyalty” above all else), and those without redeeming value, the “human scum” of the earth.
For those of us who have ever wondered how it is that dictators like Saddam Hussein, or Mohammed Bin Salam, or Assad, or Putin, or Stalin, or Hitler, can grab power with absolute totality, and kill any citizen not “loyal” to power, this is how it happens.
I ask a serious question, very serious:
Do you think, that if Trump believed he could do it without consequences to himself, if he believed it would help him personally, would Trump order protestors, witnesses, or journalists to be shot, be executed?
I ponder that. It is unlikely that someone brought up within the American system could order groups of Americans killed (at least in large numbers). But if any American in power could or would consider it, it is Trump, and a few of his henchmen. I do believe that Trump would order certain individuals to be “knocked off” if he believed that doing so would preserve Trump’s hold on power.
That is scary.
Anyone who finds that statement to be irresponsible hyperbole need to just look at the above tweet, sent out to the world as his own words, that anyone – Republican, Democrat, American, foreigner – anyone not “loyal” to Trump, is ‘Human scum.” Human scum is beneath humanity, it deserves to be scrubbed.
I don’t see how it could be different. To any Trump supporter here, sit back and consider your reaction to President Obama tweeting out that people who don’t support him are “Human scum.” And no “whatabouds,” don’t tell us what Obama did you don’t like. Tell us your reaction to being called “human scum” by Obama. He didn’t do anything even close to what Trump is doing. But Trump “owns the libs” and “doesn’t take any shit” and “doesn’t have time for PC,” so it’s all okay, since those are the priorities.
Unbelievable. Trump and his hard core supporters, would, in another world, be fine with police action involving executions. We all know it, including his supporters.
They just like it.
Anyone who doesn’t believe me can just read some of my emails.
