The Trump administration is not America

From the LA Times ...

Trump throws Canada under the bus

[...] One senior Trump advisor told the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg that the Trump Doctrine could be summarized as “We’re America, Bitch.” That may not be an official policy statement, but that is the impression our allies are getting.

A message for Trump and his administration: You are not America.

What you are is an anomaly, an electoral fluke, lifted up to power by a minority of voters. As a group and as individuals you are notable for a devastating lack of intelligence, integrity, and courage. In the years to come American will look back on you as a mistake. It won't be pretty, but America will survive you.

"It won't be pretty. But America will survive you." I believe and hope you are right, Crystal.

I was watching historian Jon Meecham on a tv news show and he pointed out that things have been worse. When I was in high school/college Martin Luther King was assassinated, Bobby Kennedy was assassinated, there were half a million US troops in Vietnam, there were race riots in most big cities, college students were shot dead at Kent State by the National Guard, the 1968 Democratic convention was a mess, and the president thought he was above the law. But we're still here.
