Motherf*ckers #Resist Before It's Too Late

Remember yesterday when I said that we are in trouble because we were sliding inexorably into a dictatorship? There is no doubt that is exactly what Donald Trump wants. Listen to this clip. I mean, really listen:

“Kim Jong Un speaks and his people pay attention. I want my people to do the same thing.”

And then … the way he laughs? Envies? Enjoys? the fact that Kim Jong Un may have killed three of his Generals, and Steve Doocy’s … uncomfortable but complicit laughter?

That’s the President of the United States and his propaganda arm having a chuckle over the execution of a dictator’s political enemies.

Again: He wants to be a brutal dictator, and look around, folks: With a Republican majority that refuses to stand up to him, there are fewer and fewer impediments to that.

Meanwhile, he wants to lock up a political enemy who committed no criminal acts.

He says that his former campaign manager had nothing to do with his campaign.

He throws Michael Cohen under the bus.

He concedes that it’s OK to lie to the press.

He blames his own brutal, inhumane treatment of immigrant families on Democrats.

The man is emboldened. He says what he wants to say, and he doesn’t care, because NO ONE WILL STAND UP TO HIM. John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Ben Sasse will probably write tweets, Marco Rubio will somehow both agree with and disagree with Trump, and no one else will do a damn thing.

Motherfuckers: #Resist. We probably only have one last chance at this, and it comes in November. Canada ain’t gonna save our asses.
