This week’s Russian revelations are part of a larger pattern: Toxic white male identity politics brought us here.
As demonstrated by his words – deeds and political agenda – Donald Trump is a plutocratic authoritarian and a fascist.
Trump is also an ignorant buffoon – a racist – a nativist and a bigot.
He is also a misogynist who has bragged about sexually assaulting women.
(He denies having actually done so – but nobody believes him.)
In addition Donald Trump is a con artist and a habitual liar whose mental stability and emotional maturity are extremely suspect.
