Laurence Tribe doesn't mince words in his description of Trump:

Pathetic, porcine, stupid, sinister, obscene, obese, cruel, corrupt, deceitful, dictatorial, evasive, evil: who among us would’ve imagined that the person all those adjectives would simultaneously bring to mind for half the earth’s population would be the U.S. president?

14. Some choice adjectives there. All are spot on.

I don't think there is one negative descriptor of an individual's character that DT does NOT embody. He is the most despicable man on the planet.

16. Adding to the list -- lost.

Wandering around in the dark side with an outdated map.
Too prideful to stop at a gas station to ask directions.

All the previous descriptors also fit.

It's one thing to describe an evil.
The "Seven Deadly Sins" are in full view.
It is being televised.

20. And those are his good points!

The truly sickening aspect is that by virtue of "elected office", he wields extreme executive power that must be checked or we are not going to be able to restore credibility on the national and world stage.

34. Well, he's got that right but.....

Unfortunately in the past Tribe has argued for Corporate Personhood (the basis of Citizen's United) and also sued the Environmental Protection Agency when some industry said EPA rules were unconsitutional.

So I see him as part of the deeper system that created Trump.

Isn't porcine and obese the same thing? Maybe just a little redundant.
