Where do we start? Nearly continuous pathological liar? A level of ignorance that makes G.W. Bush look like Einstein? A heart of darkness?
Two issues are enough. Nuclear weapons. Climate crisis. That's the future, starting right now.
And there's the economy, wrecked beyond recognition by convulsing the health care system alone. There are reasons stock markets went up Sunday when Comey exonerated Clinton.
We could drill down to some points not repeatedly made. Jonathan Bernstein made two last week. First is the level of opposition to Trump by Republicans, many of them on the basis that he is dangerously unfit. Despite the craven congressional leaders, that opposition is extraordinarily widespread. Bernstein suggests that if that story had been more prominent, Trump would have faded long ago.
Whether the Republican party becomes a political party again or remains a cabal supported by a cult is an open question. But as political storm troopers for an orange-haired Hitler, let's not.
Bernstein's other point is the one I want to emphasize as motivator. You can't let the bully win.
Bullies at Trump rallies. Bullies on talk radio and Faux News. But worse, bullies in Congress. Bullies leading Congress.
But there's a simpler reason. You can't let the bullies win. Because everybody else loses.
