As Trump's World Turns: A Smorgasbord Of Social Regression

Image may contain: text Reality... and a potential nation killer.

While there are many times when I would prefer Rachel Maddow's "A" Block segment would run a few minutes less in length, we must appreciate the scope and breadth of information from her research team and her personal acumen at pacing the final "GO" presentation details to her work/broadcast.

In late May, Maddow broadcast segment with former INTEL chief JIM Clapper on Russia's interference in the 2016 elections. Interference which swung an election win to Trump. Yes, many Americans bit on the anti- Hillary campaign from the RNC and Russia.

Clapper and Maddow (9:35 minutes- Skip through maybe)

Before we move on, take a peep at the meme we used to open this piece.   Ugly and sad, eh?

OK, so what did we elect.  In addition to total incompetence across the full breadth of his administration the most noted aspect of Trumpism is lying and political malfeasance.

Jim Jordan, noted conservative "GOP agenda nasty man" attempts to attack the much more intellectually gifted and professional Rob Rosenstein in his role in the Mueller investigation on head learns to avoid absence of fact" information from Sean Hannity.

"An absence of Facts" quick fact check on the nation's number one suffer from Lack-of-fact-itis (AKA Chronic Liar's Disease).

And a smorgasbord topping: Racism.

Republicans have long leveraged racial politics via their well known and effective Southern Strategy. A strategy which dates back to Richard Nixon and Kevin Phillips and made popular via Ronald Reagan and Lee Atwater. 

While we are finding many instances of overt racism in the era of Trump, we will end this smorgasbord piece with a few instances of whites gone mad with racism.

June 30th in Rockland County, New York.

Racist white woman attacks a car of a family with origins in Mexico. You will move a voice from the car emanates with the sound of very good English.

Police called on ‘suspicious’ Black family enjoying meal at Subway

Racist steps in front of an Arab family and tells them to "go back to their country."
