Pay close attention to a handful of things:
- Trump’s breakneck pace to fill the courts with lifetime justices. Most recent one: 36, married to someone working in the White House, has never tried a case. Autocratic moves, many of these.
- Lying. It started with day 1, with crowd size. Now we talk about breaking of democratic norms constantly. Our president is a compulsive liar. That’s a long term effect. Autocratic move.
- The emptying out of the State Department. We are going to see the effects of this for years to come. Autocratic move.
- Hiring incompetent people to fill key positions. Check out the state of the USDA. Autocratic move.
Trump is the undoing of America as we know it, aided by a complicit GOP who say one thing publicly, and the privately try to pass legislation that hurts their constituents.
Should Hillary shut up? I mean, maybe? But don’t discount the deep, quiet, scary path that a man with no intellect (Trump) has put us on.
