Brian Stelter, on Sunday morning’s Reliable Sources, interviewed a conservative media baron who claimed “the American people” are thrilled with Trump, his cabinet picks, his clear vision for the country, and his strength.
The media baron and I are truly living in parallel universes. I’m horrified by Trump. I think his cabinet picks are a mash-up of billionaires, right-wing ideologues, Dr. Strangelove generals, religious nut cases, and outright racists. I think Trump’s vision for the country is to sell our power and influence to the highest bidder, or the biggest flatterer — think Putin. I don’t see Trump as strong. I see him as a thin-skinned, narcissistic bully with a cruel, vindictive streak.
I think the parallel universes are diverging, not converging, and that this degree of partisan division is lethal for our democracy.
