Rob Porter Is the Illumination Flare of Trumpist Rot

...We can start with the simple fact that this President surrounds himself with men who abuse women. Abuse and predation may know no party.But abusers seek out and run together. Trumpís politics are rooted in grievance, both gendered and racial. Trump is consistent if nothing else. He is an embodiment of his politics. Itís no surprise that this isnít theoretical or merely expressed in political terms but is interpersonal and personally violent as well. Abusers know the President is one of them. They seek him out and he protects them in turn. Few men in the Presidentís coterie have multiple wives whoíve been willing to take the step of describing their former husbandís violence on the record. But itís remarkable the number of Trumpís top advisors who have a history of abuse, whether itís accusations of harassment or sexual assault or chronic physical violence against former spouses or girlfriends.

Then thereís the Presidentís Chief of Staff, once held up as a professional and an adult accepting the burden of service to a transgressive President out of a sense of duty. That false impression has been whittled away until we arrive at the present moment where we can see unmistakably that John Kelly is an expositor of what we might call Total Quality Trumpism, a more disciplined and professionalized version of the Presidentís desire to rebuild traditional gender, racial hierarchies and seek revenge against a world he believes is spinning out of control.

Unsurprisingly, it has also become clear that Kellyís attitudes toward immigrants are deeply aligned with President Trumpís. This was clear by implication in his time running the Department of Homeland Security and more vivid in his own ravenous words. We now have ample evidence of what should have been predictable from the start: Almost everyone who signed up to serve President Trump was in a critical way like him, either ideologically or in personal character. The notion that more than a handful were dedicated, non-extremist professionals serving in spite of Trumpís failings rather than because of them has simply failed the test of evidence.

...The President is defined by his predation. He attracts these people to him or they are the only options available and he in turn protects them. Heís staffed by the inexperienced, the incompetent and the reprobate. They are unable to hide his nature even when it would be in his interest to allow them to do so. The rush of crises and incapacity yields desperation and lying, in part because of the nature of the situation but even more because these behaviors are validated from the topÖ


The REAL Trumpism, Year Two.

Here's what Trump's second year will look like.

A continued embrace of the GOP's plutocratic and regressive priorities, combined with more race baiting, culture-war stoking, and nativist fear-mongering to goose GOP turnout in 2018
