I know – my headline is rather dramatic but it’s how its feel. Never in my life (in my 60s) have I seen a campaign like this one, much less a president-elect who acts like Trump. We have evidence of a foreign power interfering with our election and the FBI who also purposely interfered in the election process and yet everyone acts like thats not really a big deal. You know- the comments like get over it- trump won and stop being a baby- trump won. Actually Trump did not win- he lost the popular vote by close to 3 million votes and won the electoral college by the 48th lowest in history. Now he meets with foreign diplomats and ceo’s of large corporations including the Tech industry and includes his grown children in these meetings. He refuses to distance himself from his extensive holdings all around the world and refuses to stop having his grown children involved in presidential meetings.
Now he wants to control who can be involved in white house press and who sits where and who will be allowed to cover the white house. He wants to elect a retired general who only retired 3 years ago and since by law it has to be 7, of course the republicans included in a must pass bill a waiver allowing him to elect this general. There will be no checks and balances in our government. Every member of his administration that he is picking is in favor of eliminating the department they will control. His Sec of State has extensive interests in Russia and will see great profit by working with russian oil corporations. The pick for dept of energy sits on the board of the oil corporation trying to cross indian reservation property in N Dakota.
So, yes we are watching the demise of our country and seeing the trump cult followers cheer madly for that demise.
