Five minutes with Trump

At this point, we should know to expect that each day will bring some new fresh hell regarding how President Trump deems it acceptable to interact with his constituents. Still, it’s more than a little chilling to watch him prepare to run the government like he's the second coming of Tony Soprano and Trump Tower is the Bada Bing.

    Trump's Bait And Switch?

    "Only a month has passed since November 8th, but it’s already clear (not that it wasn’t before) that Trump’s anti-establishment campaign rhetoric was the biggest scam of his career, one he pulled off perfectly. As president-elect and the country’s next CEO-in-chief, he’s now doing what many presidents have done: doling out power to like-minded friends and associates, loyalists, and -- think John F. Kennedy, for instance -- possibly family

    Here, however, is a major historical difference: the magnitude of Trump’s cronyism is off the charts, even for Washington...’s already obvious that, to Trump, “draining the swamp” means filling it with new layers of golden sludge...

    ...Trump is now surrounding himself with a crew of crony capitalists who understand boardroom speak, but have nothing in common with most Americans. So give him credit: his administration is already one of the great political bait-and-switch productions in our history and it hasn’t even begun. Count on one thing: in his presidency he’ll only double down on that “promise.”


  2. The worst, and most depressing, thing is that millions of people believed that a 70 year old man would instantly become some other person if elected, and now believe his metamorphosis will occur at midday on 20 January 2017.

    Of course, that's fantasy, and 100 per cent foreseeable that Trump is and will be exactly the person he is - a giant toddler, a snake oil salesman.

    Depressing part: everyone is / will act surprised. Oooh, shock. Who'd have thunk it.
