Trump is a racist, and the Republican party embraces it whole-heartedly.

Trump’s latest racist screeds attacking non-white Democratic members of Congress do not even come with any attempt by anyone in his so-called administration trying to excuse them. Remember, this is now the “we don’t do press briefings” White House. It would seem that the people who “work” in the White House press office just sit around with their feet on their desks watching Fox News all day. But I digress…

No Republican of any significance has challenged or criticized Trump’s blatantly racist comments, nor will they. Trump is their meal ticket for staying in power, so they will continue to be spineless sycophants, heaping praise upon their dear leader.

Pardon me while I go throw up.

What would be worse than 8 years of Trump as President?

How about even more years? So, the would-be dictator for life has again dropped a hint (threat?) about his potential endgame. As reported by multiple news outlets, Trump said this on his Twitter feed: “at the end of 6 years, after America has been made GREAT again and I leave the beautiful White House (do you think the people would demand that I stay longer? KEEP AMERICA GREAT)”

That was certainly not his first hint at wanting to stay beyond the two terms allowed by the Constitution. In March, 2018 Trump, at a Republican fund-raising lunch, while commenting on Chinese President Xi Jinping’s recent consolidation of power he said, “He’s now president for life. President for life. And he’s great.” Adding, “I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll give that a shot someday.”

Now famously, former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, testified to the House oversight committee earlier this year that he believes “there will never be a peaceful transition of power” if Trump loses in 2020.

If Mike Pence thinks being Vice President will be a stepping stone to his own turn as President, he has another think coming. Trump is likely to only reliquish power to Don Jr. or to his incest-fantasy daughter Ivanka.

I wish this was just a bad dream…

But it is not. Sigh. Just the headlines, they are bad enough. All from this evening.
