Many of those supporting the anti-Trump movement were once supporters of the president, but now they say their rights are being infringed upon by the illegal use of federal agents against American citizens. “It’s like the worst movie plot coming true,” one self-described patriot and former Trump supporter said. “Trump was a good guy at first, but now he is acting like a dictator and imprisoning those that oppose him… People don’t like saying it, but it really is like the rise of Hitler in Nazi Germany.”

President Trump continues to generally oppose masks amid a raging pandemic that claimed the lives of at least 134,815 Americans.

Trump is also potentially putting millions of American children at risk by insisting that schools reopen. His delusional view of the virus — mainly that it’s “harmless” — serves his political agenda of getting the economy moving and the country back to “normal” ahead of the fall election.

The move by the EPA defies a court order that required the agency to establish a safe drinking-water standard for the chemical by the end of June. Instead of regulating the toxic chemical, the EPA overturned the underlying scientific finding that declared perchlorate a serious health risk for five million to 16 million people in the United States.

What is apparent is that the Republican controlled Senate’s handling of the impeachment trial is a hoax. McConnell has gone on record as saying that he is not impartial, will not allow witnesses, and has worked in coordination with Trump’s attorneys.

This travesty of justice would not occur anywhere else in America. The fact that it is happening in the halls of the Senate is very sobering. 

We are witnessing the demise of democracy.

It’s no surprise that Donald Trump is a polarizing figure. Unlike almost every other US President that tried to unify the nation, Trump sees his future is tied to further dividing the nation, and giving his supporters more reasons to love him and hate the opposition. 

Going through an impeachment hearing, which is bound to fail in the Republican controlled Senate anyway, will give Trump one more big bullhorn to shout his message of hate and division, and may, in fact, help assure his re-election. 

Hope is never a willful ignorance to the hardships and cruelties that so many suffer or the enormous challenges that we face in mounting progress in this imperfect world…. It’s a belief in goodness and human ingenuity and, maybe most of all, our ability to connect with each other and see each other in ourselves, and that if we summon our best selves, then maybe we can inspire others to do the same.

Trump sounded like a jilted lover when he tweeted: “I’ve done so much for you, and then this… We won’t forget, and neither will your customers or your now very HAPPY competitors!”

It’s not totally clear what the president meant when he said he’s done “so much for” Harley-Davidson.

In his Fox News interview Sunday, Trump dismissed the idea that Harley’s decision had something to do with his tariffs.

There is little doubt that the Trump Administration will nominate — and force through — another extremely conservative justice like Neil Gorsuch. And that’s not just bad news for the LGBTQ community. It will most likely set back women’s rights, voting rights, and every marginalized group in this nation who relies upon the Supreme Court to live up to those four words etched into the building’s western pediment: “Equal Justice Under Law.”

“The only way to solve the drug problem is through toughness,” Trump said in remarks he echoed on Monday. However, most experts agree that criminal penalties and “toughness” is not a way to solve drug problems. Recall the Nixon and Reagan administration’s War on Drugs, which were utter failures.

Trump has a history of shifting his positions in response to events or advice. Before he entered the political fray in earnest, he expressed support for a ban on assault weapons and “a slightly longer waiting period” to purchase a gun.

But during his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump ran as an unabashedly pro-gun candidate, warning the NRA: “The only way to save our second amendment is to vote for a person that you all know named Donald Trump.”
