Now that Nazis are marching in the streets and our President is slow to call them out by name — listen, there are many, many sides to this — it may be worth mentioning yet one more time that Trump for years kept a book of Hitler’s speeches by his bedside.
Clearly, the President was reluctant to come down too hard on the Nazis — and here is David Duke chastising him for eventually having done so.
It’s like Putin. Sure, he murders journalists and political rivals, but — what? — “you think our country’s so innocent?”
How long will it be before the Republican Congress comes out squarely against a guy who will instantly and instinctively and viciously attack everyone except Nazis and autocrats?
While we wait — and in case I was not the last man on earth to discover this great TV series — you could entertain yourself binging on The Americans. I’m only four episodes into Season One, but I don’t think you can watch the pilot and not click to the next episode. And the next and the next. All free, if you have Amazon Prime.
Of course, back then, the Russians were communists hoping to destroy our democracy. It was all but treasonous for Americans to be “sympathizers.”
Now that they are merely klepto-autocratic billionaires out to destroy our democracy — and succeeding rather well thus far — we invite them and their photographers into the Oval Office with smiles broader and more genuine than reserved for anyone else.
When does that rise to the level of treason? Or “misdemeanor.”
