    Caged children, lost allies, neo-Nazis: What Trump supporters have done to America

    If you are one of the Trump supporters don't be too smug. There are some things that can be fixed like SCOTUS if the current justices can hang on until we boot Trump and your republican Congress. The federal judges across the country that Trump appointed can then be stopped from creating Constitutional crisis issues like taking rights and equality away. You will know what too far means when you push Americans too far. Witness your real situation by reading the entire article. There is a price to pay for Trump destroying America...

    "What else? Oh yes, the American president declared Canada, the EU, and Mexico to all be “national security” threats meriting tariffs on the metals they import into America. He justified this, in a phone call with Trudeau, by asserting (wrongly) that Canadians burned down the White House in 1812. He personally insulted the Canadian and French leaders in a Twitter barrage before the G7 meeting in Quebec, and destroyed all semblance of civility in an extraordinary onslaught against Trudeau after leaving the meeting early for Singapore. And he pointedly refused to stay to participate in the discussions on global warming and protecting the environment.

    Meanwhile, he went out of his way to flatter Kim Jong-Un; stated that he wanted Russia (currently under U.S. sanctions for meddling in the U.S. election and for annexing Crimea) readmitted to the G7; and bent over backwards to ease the economic sanctions against a Chinese technology company that his own administration has acknowledged is stealing American intellectual property.

    Of course, a week in Trumpland wouldn’t be complete without more truly insane domestic actions. too. Witness the Justice Department’s recent decision not to defend the constitutionality of the parts of the Affordable Care Act that prevent insurance companies either denying coverage to sick people or forcing them to pay vastly more for their coverage. Having failed repeatedly to gut the ACA through legislation, Republicans have now simply decided to gut it via executive fiat, turning their backs on millions of particularly vulnerable Americans who finally, under the ACA, were able to access affordable health coverage.

    That Trump and Sessions feel empowered to fundamentally reshape the American health system using a legal sleight of hand ought not to be a surprise. After all, Trump-the-would-be-king has announced that he has the “absolute right” to pardon himself and anyone else for any and all crimes; and his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has declared that the president isn’t indict-able for any crimes, asserting that Trump could have shot Comey in the Oval Office and still be immune from prosecution.

    In the new Trump-reality, the president can do anything and not be charged with a crime; and can order his minions to do anything, secure in the knowledge that even if they are charged their boss will then pardon them. Such a legal theory could allow for, say, state-sanctioned death squads, torture, wholesale embezzlement of state funds, the imprisonment of political enemies and so on.



    None of this is the stuff of democracy. Those who defend it all, simply for party-political advantage, shame on you.

    You are turning America into a global pariah state. You are shredding the culture of democracy. You are undermining multinational institutions.

    And you are normalizing extremism and irrationalism and cruelty as governing principles. Shame. Shame. Shame."

    Many voted for him to "burn it all down to start over" so I imagine they approve highly.

    Yes, he was the anti-politician.

    America looked at Trump and Hillary and elected Trump.

    A decent Dem, even a HALF DECENT Dem would have beaten him easily.

    America said "No Thanks" to Obamas third term...

    Some days I think it's worth the effort, some days I don't.

    Today is a "don't" day.
