This is beyond crazy...
Trump has always reminded me a Hugo Chavez (except stupider). A dictator wannabe, seeking only to further his own agenda and establish his tightly controlled monocracy in the country, aided by his charismatic skills and populist discourse which he used to wow the uneducated masses.
When he got himself elected, he started to control the media and shut down his opponents by using his presidential powers and the courts, as well as surrounding himself by an army of loyal stooges he kept happy through lucrative deals and corruption.
Phase three, of course, were the threats, and eventually the political assassinations, while the country was descending into the economic and social chaos it is today.
Trump is utterly transparent. As Tugger and others have mentioned above, his lack of competences, his thin skin, his dangerous penchant for absolute control, his massive and fragile ego, his narcissism, his illiteracy, his disdain for conventional democratic processes, his attraction to those who pledge loyalty to him, regardless of how heinous those individuals might be, his pledges to foreign powers in exchange for helping him achieve his power grab, his desire to use his powers to enrich himself, his laziness, the lot... It was all in plain sight the very day he started his campaign. It was all written on the wall, and those who could read it were sounding the alarm bells already. But the media, and America at large, couldn't take their eyes off the decadent and depraved maelstrom of malevolence and hatred and succumbed to the dark side.
What's unfolding today, as shocking as it may be, and entertaining to some degree, is only the logical consequence of having an individual like Trump in the oval office. It quite simply could not have been unfolding any other way.
All of the above said, and all of the idiotic (my opinion) presidential tweets, how cool is it that (1) I can publish a post in a public forum without any fear of being tracked or being thrown into jail; and (2) forget about Trump's Twitter--take a look at the responses--literally calling the president a loser. This is democracy. I think both sides of can agree on the importance of that.
This is indeed democracy... so far. What it is now is a massive stress test of the American democratic system. We have an incompetent President with despotic tendencies and a congress devoted to protect and defend him.
We are about to see whether the checks and balances established by the founding fathers are strong enough to wisthand the mother of all attacks on democracy and the average American.
Good luck, America... This will get uglier before it gets better.
