Trump continues to unravel policies that have long been the bedrock of conservative philosophy. The silence of the Republican leaders and actions of the right-wing TV intelligentsia is in some ways laughable, but is also depressing because of the consequences of their actions.
Perhaps the Democrats, including me, should take some joy because of the Republican acts of political confusion and crookedness. However, I love this country, with all its faults, and the diminishing sense of global leadership and decline in moral and ethical principles certainly does not bring pleasure or happiness to me or my family. What I don’t understand is the lack of opposition and rejection from those in the Republican establishment and leadership to this charlatan, con artist president.
