We know now that even the right wing FBI and all of our right wing intelligence services (because right wing is what they have always been) admit that the spies of a foreign dictator were major factors in the election of the man who criminally sits in the White House (well, except on the weekends, when we pay $3 million so he can play golf.)
Hey, so what?
In the entire history of this country, for almost two and a half centuries, if anything like this had happened, this man would be out of the White House and in jail by now, if he had not already faced execution.
But this time around? Who cares?
We watched as Republicans shouted at the top of their voices about utterly made up crimes that Obama and Hillary had allegedly committed; which even if they had been real would have amounted to almost nothing compared to the high treason that Donald Trump has obviously, beyond the shadow of a doubt, committed. We watched them demand impeachment and imprisonment over and over again. Year after year, screams about Benghazi and e-mails, about how he was a Communist and a Muslim, and how she was eternally corrupt because she got paid to give a speech. And no one with a real voice would step forward to put a stop to this disgusting indecency.
The only real story in this country since the election of the criminal Reagan has been the abuse of this country's laws and standards by one party- the Republicans- to cheat and lie and bully their way into power. Their entire account of history and reality has been nothing but a gigantic, savage distortion of reality, and no one thought it might be a good idea to stop them spreading it.
So, here is the result: a pathological liar, a corrupt criminal in his private life, and now in his use of his office to enrich his family, a traitor who is deliberately destroying our relationship with our allies, while doing anything that a certain foreign dictator wants, a sociopathic sadist who glories in his ability to inflict pain on people, and openly gloats that no one can stop him. And he is our leader, because the Republican party decided that building a base of wretched, rage and greed filled, ignorant racists was the only way for the rich who are the Republicans' only real constituency to maintain control.
And it's all okay. And when things go inevitably, disastrously wrong, as they did in the last Republican administration, we all know that the press will be right there to help them blame it on the Democrats.
Yesterday, while the Senate hearings that revealed just the briefest glimpse of Trump's treason went on, Trump himself was tweeting out lies about what was being said in front of the whole nation. And today, one of CNN's paid political experts came on TV to declare several times that Trump was not lying at all, he was only speaking "Americanese," a language that only the real Americans out in the heartland could understand, not us Commie liberals.
I thought about that, and you know, he was right. Trump's voters know exactly what he is saying; that it's party time now, time to take out their rage on the niggers and the spics, and the chinks and the kikes too. That's a message that they can all get behind. And who cares about a little treason, or even the inevitable depression and wars, when they come with a license to hate?
