Law and Order?

Donald Trump has declared himself to be the “law and order” president.

This is such a joke. Trump has looted the environment, is guilty of obstruction of Congress, and has disbanded the police, who in this case are Inspectors General who are supposed to enforce the law in the executive branch of our federal government. He has also violated several clauses of the constitution, the ultimate law of the land, including the first amendment.

It seems possible Trump has violated more laws than all the protesters put together.

I say, lock him up.

UPDATE: Trump and the Republicans aren’t just looting the environment, they are looting the country. The GOP snuck in a tax change to the Cares coronavirus relief package they passed in late March that lets the wealthy avoid $82 billion in taxes. And why am I not surprised that the biggest recipients of this windfall is rich real estate investors (like Trump).

    More than that, Trump is doing his best to dismantle the rule of law itself.

    The whole “nation of laws, not of men” is antithetical to his worldview — listen to him, he always reduces a nation, a principle, a treaty to “a guy,” and that’s how he understands it.

    And his staking any claim to “order” is the bitterest irony of all. He is one of the most chaotic people on the face of the earth. If the current state of the Federal government doesn’t convince you of that, there are the personal observations of the people who have worked in his environment, whether they like him or not.

    Trump is a chaos vector — which is probably why Putin chose him as his instrument.
