Seeing Different Worlds

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.

  1. Did you see the opening segment of Saturday Night Live several days ago? If not, google it. It includes Alec Baldwin as Trump, a visit down the chimney from Putin, Melania, Kelly Ann, and a pop-in visit from the Secy of State, who has a great time with “Putie.” Every line has innuendo.

  2. for Phyllis: I did. And I actually think mockery is a good way to deal with Trump — gets under his skin, and much better than taking him seriously.
