trump seldom speaks without making a fool of himself. . .or worse.
Yesterday he met with Senate Republicans, including Sen. Jeff Flake from Arizona. Flake has been openly critical of trump, who said he might start attacking him. trump promised Flake would fail in his re-election bid. Then Flake pointed out that he was not running for re-election.
The brief exchange shows trump again bumping uneasily into reality. He doesn’t even know — undoubtedly because he doesn’t care — which Republicans are running for which elected positions.
Worse than that, the conversation showed his inclination to be — in his words — a counter-puncher. In other words, he does not know how to take the initiative; He simply reacts to whatever come up. He reacts irrationally by turning every criticism into an excuse for ad hominem retaliation.
We would be fools were we not to notice how very like Hitler trump is. His attitude toward critics is exactly like that of Hitler.
Think America is immune to such things? Then you are too young to remember Nixon. Read the transcripts of the tapes of Nixon’s private conversations and you will see the same sick perversions that trump is so proud to display.
THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR SUPPORTING TRUMP, NONE WHATSOEVER. WHAT HE IS, IS TOO EVIDENT, TOO OBVIOUS.
