Tumult

Trump is banking on the fact that his supporters — about 35% of U.S. voters — want him to upend the system. The rest of us are horrified by the unfolding of a presidency that is so much worse than we feared.

I’m thinking that constant tumult and upheaval is going to get old. People don’t really like to live in chaos, not for very long. I’m going to be watching carefully to see when that 35% number begins to crack. Only then, I suspect, will Republican leaders in Congress find some backbone.

That we have a religious ideologue like Pence waiting in the wings is truly the stuff of nightmares.
