Nixon resigned when the GOP in Congress realized the shellacking they’d take in the Nov 1974 elections. Might the GOP begin thinking about the shellacking they’re about to take in the Nov 2018 elections due to the foolish trade war with China?
Conservatives and the GOP are already locked into groupthink and are at the beginning stages of dehumanizing white male liberals. Together they represent an existential threat to the US and our way of life. Together they will usher in an authoritarian state.
Most reporters, pundits, commentators, and bloggers seem to have missed the real story of the Ol’ Pussy Grabber’s NY Times interview. The real story is the existential threat that his extreme narcissism poses.
NK perceives the US as an existential threat. The Ol’ Pussy Grabber perceives the Russia-Trump scandal as an existential threat. The intersection of the two is the stuff of nightmares: who prevails, distraction or suicide?
