21. He needs to say it out loud.

Why he won't hold to account those who are clearly trying to break the country on behalf of a self-proclaimed dictator. Why isn't he indicting them? Fear of mass violence?

The Republicans threw in the towel on upholding their oaths long ago. Now they and we are living with the consequences. The fourth estate is largely AWOL and responsible for our drift towards Fascism. Maybe Garland's fairness is better than mass incarceration of Congressional Putin puppets. But relying on the electorate is not an option. At least 1/3 of us have tuned out. The rest of us split the vote so the feeling of helplessness is our new reality.
