It is a classic case of thuggery we are experiencing with the trumps. They are unable to face the facts of their deeds and they don't want anyone else to even know of them. We are being guided by an elected leader who sees himself as a dictator, not as a servant of the people. If our democracy survives and that is a big if at the moment then it will be because we did expose the trumps to criminal punishments for acts committed in defiance of our constitution. Many think that we can politely work our rules of law to enforce and maintain our democracy, but I am not one of those. I am of the mindset that we are in a street brawl with the trumps and they are not honoring Marquess of Queensberry rules. Instead they are pulling every dirty trick in the book to keep their power.
There are less than 3 1/2 years left in his elected term and if we don't keep fighting him every step of the way we may find that getting rid of him and his entrenched followers will be harder than ever imagined. The concept of manipulating the vote is not lost on republicans and with them in power it is likely that more is to come. They are like savages when it comes to holding onto what they think is their right to lead. There will be no debating nor logical arguing with them. They will say that the sky is butter if that is what it takes for them to keep power. Selective bullying aimed at those who violate the trump doctrine of disagreeing with them is now the rule not the exception.
