2. The proof is right before our eyes.




All we have to do is look around. Trump doesn't GAF about America.

3. Would never have thought it possible a year ago.

Really wish we didn't have someone driving the point home against every person who has ever said, "it doesn't really matter who the president is..."

4. There is SO much more that could happen... and might still happen

but yes, the roll back on progress on many fronts (LGBTQ rights, environment, energy, research, basic human rights, health care, etc) is depressing. Could take a long time to get back to where we were.

6. We have not even scratched the surface of how bad this will get...

The only way this ends is if the GOP wakes up and decides that they have to walk away from the existential threat that Trump is to their party...they STILL believe he is a net plus for them and until that calculus is changed, Trump is going to keep on spiraling out of control.

I only hope they grab him and gag him before he orders the missiles to fly towards North Korea...

7. Unlikely.

But given a Congress already corrupted as ours is, a helluva lotta damage can be done in that time.

9. I have always known how fragile our system is, but. . . . the destruction has been faster

and more insidious than even my nasty, suspicious imagination could have come up with.

12. We know this because it's ALREADY happened - under Dubya.

It took 6 years rather than 6 months; but in that time Dubya and his neo-fascist gang managed to undo 67 years of work - from FDR to Clinton - that had made the U.S. prosperous, fairly egalitarian, rock-solid stable, unquestionably powerful, and almost universally respected.

That's how we greeted the 21st century. By 2008, all of that had either vanished, or had been visibly tarnished and diminshed.

13. The institutions are fighting back, though.

It isn't as bad as it could be.

But it is pretty f-ing bad.

That's for sure
