We Are So Screwed II

Last night I watched an hour long interview of Philip Rucker and Carol Leonnig, the authors of A Very Stable Genius.

It was a good interview.

After a while though, I began to feel a sort of dread: there were a whole lot of people watching this, all of whom came to the interview appalled by what has happened to America since 20 January 2017.

All of us were getting an entertaining dose of horror-reinforcement from the interview, and would get more if we read the book.

But donnie is still there.

None of our horror can stop the mayhem, malfeasance and destruction.

The only people who can stop all that, I pondered, were not even watching the interview; they were watching Fox.

About the time that unsettling realization had sunk in, Rucker and Leonnig began recounting the timbre, nature, tone and content of trump rallies, reaching back to before he was president and extending to only hours before the interview.

Talk about chilling.

I thought that they must have read the predecessor to this post, Screwed I.
