Fatigue and pessimism in the face of this onslaught are understandable.
But the American people must choose action.
What fresh shame has the child-king Donald Trump – ruler of the American kakistocracy – unleashed upon the country and the world these last few weeks?
There are many instances but some of Trump’s more ignominious ‘achievements’ include an empathy-free and vainglorious visit to Texas in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey.
During said trip he neither visited with the victims nor actually toured the flooded areas firsthand.
Playing on Twitter and modeling his campaign hats and other overpriced paraphernalia is more important than exercising proper leadership during a national emergency.
Donald Trump also pardoned former Phoenix Sheriff Joe Arpaio.
The latter is a white supremacist who bragged about running a ‘concentration’ camp where he systematically violated the human rights of Latinos and Hispanics.
