Trump is being “set at naught.” Frantically, the Republican Party, and operatives inside the White House, are isolating Donald Trump from power – they have no other choice. They tried, in recent months, to educate Trump about policy and legislative agendas; but it just hasn’t worked – he made a huge mess out of everything he got involved in, and has damaged the caucus to no end, as they reach the end of their unlimited, unconstitutional power. Word is that we aren’t completely safe yet, but much has been done to reduce the risk of an “accidental” nuclear war, or further damage being done to the economy; or to further weaken morale in the administration and the military.
I think that it’s obvious that even Donald imagined for a moment that he was going to be able to do it: learn enough about policy and legislation to, at the very least, confound his enemies. But, that was not to be: his opponents worked him like a rented mule, and backing down on all of his signature issues cost Trump a huge chunk of credibility in his own camp. And it cost him the 2020 election – if he makes it that far!
We can’t really have a President who is a “loose cannon on deck.” We have to maintain, at the very least, a sense of self-preservation.
If we invoke the 25th. Amendment, Mike Pence instantly becomes President. If someone employs the more Shakespearean solution – same result.
With Trump, it all came down to “competence.” He had none. But, Mike Pence does. He is a thousand times more dangerous than Trump. He wants a one-party theocracy.
Two women cried about what they saw at the border (or, more properly, “where not allowed to see”) while seated in Congress. When Pence went to the Border, he was, in every instance: “the strongest man in the room.” That was a crushing blow against the Democratic Party, and freedom. The breakdown says too much symbolically. It may have set back gender equality a hundred years. But, it’s done. What we’re fighting for is equality and freedom. Mike Pence will have none of it.
