Little did we know during the Bush era, that Bush was a run-of-the-mill class clown. By no means exceptional. However, in order to convince Republican voters to trust the exact same failed policies all over again, a much bigger clown was required. Enter the Trump Super Clown.
A man whose depth of depravity knows no limits. And yet no matter how low he stoops his base is right there with him, cheering him on to the next level of self-debasement. No act of evil is considered too vile to force them to break ranks.
Whereas Bush illegally detained grown men at Guantanamo, Trump is now detaining babies in cages. His "values voters" have no qualms. Forget the fact that disastrously failed U.S. policies both in the Middle East and Central America were the root cause of these mass migrations. Facts mean nothing to the Trump Idiocracy. All of this chicanery of course follows in the long human history of nihilistic decadence preceding collapse.
Meanwhile, aghast Democrats need not entertain the fantasy that the Roman Senate will impeach Caligula. Knowing that he is the only thing standing between them and re-regulation of corruption - that can't happen.
In other words, Trump's election spawned a late stage mega bubble in arrogant ignorance that will forever define the last days of the American empire.
Be that as it may, Trump's efforts to rearrange Globalization to his own liking are a fool's errand. Because after all, what the wise man does at the beginning, the fool does at the end.
