President-elect Trump is already doing so many things that I find questionable that it’s astounding. Granted, I was prepared to be completely unhappy with him from the start, so I’m not the best person to ask, perhaps. But are we, his opposition, so keyed up that we’re going to see Hitler 2.0 in everything he does? Or is he actually BEING Hitler 2.0?
He’s naming people to his Cabinet posts of questionable backgrounds; calling some of them white supremacists is not beyond the pale. He’s still conducting business meetings despite the appearance of conflicts of interest. He called television news hosts and executives to a meeting to browbeat them into submission today.
Worse still, the small part of his base that is the white supremacist movement is being widely reported to be celebrating with rituals that invoke the Nazi party at its finest. Trump or his people are doing nothing to repudiate this. NOTHING.
I don’t know whether to shit or go blind, as my father might have said.
