Drop what you’re doing and watch four minutes of perfectly unhinged blather uttered by Donald Trump in just the past two weeks. Only seeing is believing. The man is not in his right mind. And this is by no means a comprehensive list of all the whack a mole things he has said recently, as the walls of legal problems close in, only some of the most notable. He is not playing with a full deck. His “motherf**ker” remark is at 3:36. Look, we use adult language around here, but a presidential candidate using the vocabulary of the gutter at a campaign rally is yet another cultural sub-basement that Trump has dragged us down into.

Well, ladies and gentlemen, I’ll tell you what. We have seen the alpha and the omega of the Republican party. We grew up learning the Gettysburg address in school. That piece of pithy eloquence has resounded in our national psyche since the day it was spoken aloud. It defines us. It made us proud, the appeal to the “better angels of our nature.” The man who spoke those words not only led America, he exemplified it. And now this diatribe of lies and vulgarity, from this Republican standard bearer, defines us to.
The GOP has hit bottom. I don’t know what they’ll move on to next, but it won’t be the same GOP. You can’t get lower than Trump. And I say that cautiously because I didn’t think the GOP could sink lower than Dubya but boy was I wrong.

Trump’s an ongoing constitutional crisis. The word “unprecedented” has been used so often since he appeared on the political scene that if you had the copyright on it, even at a dollar per usage, you’d be out on the water in your yacht sailing with the likes of Jeff Bezos — of the Washington Piece, to quote Junior.
The bottom line here is that we have a mentally ill man, who is under siege legally and he’s using propaganda and right-wing media to create unreality. And so many Americans want him back in office because they want to throw democracy away.
I hope this isn’t how democracy dies. The Washington Post says, “Democracy Dies In Darkness.” That’s their corporate motto. Democracy dies when we normalize insanity and excuse unacceptable behavior. Democracy dies when our norms and our institutions mean nothing. Democracy dies when the pursuit of profit trumps all other values. Democracy dies in apathy.
Defeating Donald Trump is the hill we die on. The GOP will do nothing. They are enabling the fall of America. Trump is not only a treasonous POS, so is every single Republican that voted to keep him safe when they should have bounced him out of politics years ago. They all swore an oath to the Constitution and they all broke it. Trump is the “threat, domestic or foreign” that needs to be eliminated, but instead the Republicans enabled him at every turn. Let’s see whether America can withstand this siege or else government of the people by the people and for the people may indeed perish from this earth.
