A Brief Comment on the Transistion

I'm still bored to death with Donald Trump and his crooked circus, but I do want to comment on one thing that I am sort of half watching:  Does it turn out that Trump really is the crazy neo-Nazi right wing hater that he appeared during the campaign, or will it turn out that he is just one more Republican tool of the rich, who succeeded once again into conning the rubes into putting him in a position where he could savage their lives once again?

Look at his appointments:  an EPA administrator who is a tool of the Kochs who has consistently denied the existence of global warming; a Secretary of Education who has made it her lifelong task to destroy public education and turn schools into profit centers for large corporations, a National Security Advisor who hates Muslims with every fiber of his being and is constantly agitating for wars against them, and on and on.  And look what signature campaign issues he is backing away from: the wall, prosecuting Hillary, mass deportation.  Or look at his proposals for (surprise) less taxes and regulations on the really rich people.

Right now, I'd say that is the sign of a Paul Ryan in a clown costume; i.e. just one more rich crook bent on robbing the country into a state of total economic collapse.  It's too early to tell for sure, but I'm betting we've just seen the biggest con played on the American people since Ronald Reagan pulled the same trick in 1980.

And they never learn, do they?

You are right, they never do learn...and unfortunately, the democrats do little to help them learn.

I think he's both.

It would be a highly amusing spectacle, if they weren't doing as much damage to the rest of us as they are doing to themselves.
