    Default Trump was right

    Globalism, China, the economy, energy independence, and pretty much every national policy issue he got right.

    Trump is crazy regardless of what you like that he did.


    "Later that day, General Milley spoke to Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who was growing increasingly concerned Mr. Trump would lash out and use military force.

    “This is bad, but who knows what he might do?” Ms. Pelosi said. “He’s crazy. You know he’s crazy. He’s been crazy for a long time. So don’t say you don’t know what his state of mind is.”

    “Madam Speaker,” General Milley said, “I agree with you on everything.”

    General Milley, who as the president’s top military adviser is not in the chain of command, tried to reassure Ms. Pelosi that he could stop Mr. Trump.

    “The one thing I can guarantee is that as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, I want you to know that — I want you to know this in your heart of hearts, I can guarantee you 110 percent that the military, use of military power, whether it’s nuclear or a strike in a foreign country of any kind, we’re not going to do anything illegal or crazy,” he said."

    Woodward and Costa's new book about the last days of the Trump administration demonstrates just how bad it got. Just like Critical Race Theory, the Trumpians have their heads snuggly inserted in the sand.

    Trump and Fox News call for Milley's firing and to be tried for treason, of course.

    It is what you do when you can't think of anything to add.

    He was right about all those people he fired (many of whom seem to be publishing books) being both afraid and filled with contempt at his extreme behavior.

    They didn't hate him at first, until he gave them sufficient reason to do so.

    Precisely what happened to me, too. But my hate began with the Central Park Five, where Trump was proven wrong, but he continued to assert the guilt of those young men even after they were acquitted. And then the Obama birther big lie watered my loathing for the guy into full blown hate. I despise the man, and he has earned it, repeatedly, over the years.

    For me it was seeing the Evangelicals licking his rear.

    Then it was John McCain.

    Then the Gold Star Family.

    Then bragging about grabbing “pussys”.

    Then holding a Bible up after clearing a crowd.

    Then saying he would go with the insurrectionists

    ,but before all those atrocities, it was going bankrupt 4 times. Who does that and gets by with it.
