We have a common saying around here that every day seems like a week and every week seems like a month with this administration. This past week has been no different. Every day seems like the country is descending further into a fascist dictatorship, as congressional Republicans seem content to let tRump freely trample on everything this country has stood for. There are 3 major areas that have dominated my conscious observations.
The G-7 summit is supposed to be easy. We get together with our allies and discuss how to move trading and human rights forward for everyone. The occupant of the White House seems to take a special joy in pissing in everyone's corn flakes, and so he called for punitive tariffs on all of them. Once there (showing up late, of course), he warned them all not to retaliate. Of course they will, and Canada said so after tRump had ducked out early. Naturally, tRump had some nasty words for Trudeau and Canada, our longest and closest ally. To add a moldy cherry to the rancid whipped cream on top of the shit sundae, he called for Russia to be added back into the G-7, seemingly completely unaware as to why they were booted out in the first place.
