I believe it is simply easier for them to love their flag than it is to truly love their country. That is clearly the case with Trump who has been know to literally suffocate the thing one minute while mocking a war hero like John McCain the next …
The truth is, the vast majority of this country is outraged. That we are feeling a bit helpless in the face of the Trump Dictatorship makes us Americans. We know evil when we see it. We know abhorrent, complicit and covering behavior when we smell it.

These days, I’m as likely to feel like punching a person squarely between the eyes as I am to reach out to some random soul, grab them by the shoulder and cry. I am scared to death it could be the same person …
There is real, delicious irony that this party has allowed itself to be pinned underneath the most awful version of itself in Donald Trump.

Pelosi has been back on the job less than a month and without even raising her voice has backed Trump into the corner of his playpen. She is building committees and what will be the most powerful political caucus in U.S. history, brick by solid brick. This is what she does.
This is what the most powerful person in the world does.
Not impeaching this wannabe dictator would be an abhorrent dereliction of Democratic duty, and would play right into the hands of the GOP, who have been grunting and groaning warnings at us not to go down the only road worth traveling right now.
I also want to say you are welcome to the TV stations who asked me to come on prime time tonight and help bail out their failing ratings. I think you will see me doing a lot more of this in the future, folks. I get to use the command of my best words and past super ratings successes to change everybody’s mind about very important, terrific things and they get to see their terrible, disgusting ratings go through the roof. I think you can see pretty quickly how great this plan is.
Much like the landmark Civil Rights Act or the New Deal, turning out a destructive traitor and sending him off to abuse only his family may not be wholly popular by some in this country yet, but history will undoubtedly show that it will have been the right thing to do.
