He's Alive


And in two months he'll be sitting where Lincoln sat, because nearly 62 million Americans looked hate in the eye, heard racism's siren's song and said, "Hell yeah!  That's what I want!"

Because he spoke to them in their language, told them that they are the victims and gave them targets for their rage:

Talk about hammer hitting the nail on the head. Truly frightening, one how banal Donny and his minions appeal to hatred is, and two how susceptible the American Everyman is to the message. We are a nation of very small minds.

Did you see the video of the alt-righters giving the Hitler salute at their little confab in DC?

My big question is whether the Republicans will try to impeach him immediately to get the more domesticated Pence in place or will be so pressured by the oligarchs who will benefit from his infrastructure give-aways that they just cave to him.

By the way, I'm all in favor of infrastructure, but, if you read Krugman this morning, it's pretty clear that Trump wants to do infrastructure projects in a way that amounts to just handing over cash to oligarchs.

Maybe they'll impeach Trump and Pence and hand the keys to Paul "The Cowardly" Ryan

The right has been pissing and moaning about a "librul bias" in the news since Methusalah was a baby. Now, I just hope there are enough angry, intelligent, journalists…to really stick it to 'em…for a change.

NPR has been getting some better at asking the tough questions. Not good enough, but better.

Now's their chance. :o)

Impeachment may give satisfaction to those properly offended by the hyena-elect. But a quick glance at the line of succession says frying pan/fire/frying pan/fire...

What Trump has done is to normalize white supremacy, racism, sexism, homophobia, Anti-Semitism, etc. He's done that to make it ok for the Upper Crust who voted for him to feel ok about being married to the lower caste trailer trash who voted for him. The White Supremacist base was out loud and proud to vote for Trump. The Country Club set - who are every bit as racist/bigoted/etc as the WWC are, if not more so - lied about not voting for Trump. But they did, and they are secretly glad he won.

So this is the new normal. You get to be an out loud and proud bigoted racist, while Trump rolls the country for as much grift as he can. Trump's various businesses will be enriched and enhanced beyond all measure, but it's all good cuz the white supremacists - rich and poor - can say the "n" word out loud and be uncouth, nasty shits to everyone who doesn't look like them.

Hooray.

Let it also be said that Hillary is expected to win the popular vote by about 2.5 million. So, while it is arguably true that she should have won by, say 25.0 million, it is not true that American voters supported Trump.

But as the Electoral College teaches us, it's where and how you put your game on. As we all know from 2000, but for a confluence of events, we'd be talking about what a close call we had when Gore only beat GW by a half million.

On the glass-half-full side, Il Duce didn't last long once his paisanos realized he did not, in fact, know more than the generals. What fate awaits Il Douche, only the Seven Mad Gods of the Sea can tell.

Hi (not Heil) from Canada.

And so many on the networks talk of giving him a chance. The chance republicans and their white supremacist enabling over the years. They now see Eric Bolling rewarded for his trite . Like good old Tony Snow.
I wait in anticipation for Brooks's deep thought in the shallow of his mind. When Roger Ailes gets appointed to the position of Chief Government fornicator.

The media cast are already altering their auditions for a Trump gig.

They say they need access to be able to have Trump allow interviews. But they cannot ask and follow through and counter any tripe Trump dumps on them.
So why do they need access? TV ratings competing with Trump's tweeter + their nice salaries.
