A Few Questions

Why would the president of the United States show a complete lack of interest in the long-established accusations that Russia interfered with our election? Why would our president show excessive concern over the evidence that he and/or his team cooperated with the Russians in their meddling? Why would the Republicans be resorting to such  bizarre behavior in discrediting the DOJ?

If you add up the possible answers to each of these questions,  it certainly looks inescapable to me that Trump is extremely guilty and, as the Republicans have come to realize this (very, very slowly) they have chosen to stick with partisan politics by fighting to defend their man, crook or not.

A few more questions, does not the great effort to discredit the FBI and DOJ during this investigation actually discredit it much more deeply? And does not Trump’s effort to replace every one in the Executive and Judicial Branches with incompetent people with only  one qualification (loyalty to him) demonstrate at least this much about Trump: he is utterly incompetent? In trying to shape everything (including the press) around his own petty little self, isn’t the president doing very severe and long-lasting harm to America in particular and to democracy in general?

And one final question, one which may not make much sense beyond Christian circles: How in the world can a Christian look at Donald Trump and not see the spirit of the Anti-Christ?

Those cute little hands of his, the ones with the stubby little thumb he likes to poke up, is it not perfectly obvious that they are the biggest part of his whole being.

    I’m baffled, too, Donna. Bonhoeffer would say that in part it is self-imposed stupidity (his word) but that most of all it is a people’s desire to evade personal responsibility by giving unlimited trust to a single intimidating, charismatic leader who promises to take care of everything for them.
