Now we are all inside the Trump branded world, whether we want to be or not. We have all become extras in his for-profit reality TV show, which has expanded to swallow the most powerful government in the world.

Power and corruption do go hand in hand, especially when there is no firm moral standard, ethical perspective or other internalized element to slow or stop the worst instances. No wonder we have state attorney generals and others striving for at least legal compliance to allow the constitution to be the barrier our founding fathers intended. Thanks Judy

What surprises me is that he is so blatant about what he is doing. AND there has been NO real effort to stop him.

This is precisely why we progressives need to support progressive candidates, and more importantly, get our patootys to the polls and VOTE. Volunteer to drive people who don't have an easy way to reach the balloting places. Make sure your progressive kith and kin are registered, and make sure that they cast their ballots. Voting isn't just a right, it is a duty.
