Here we go again...Only in your mind is the US burning... Most of the country, you know the parts that don’t make the news are managing to carry on.The recent Supreme Court ruling proves otherwise.
Trumps defence was simply that because he was President, he was exempt from all investigation, even for offences before he was in office.
Basically, l'etat, ces't moi.
From day one Trump has considered his authority Imperial, and he has demanded total personal loyalty and obedience, while cheerfully breaking every law put in place explicitly to prevent a monarch ruling the United States.
What is really odd is that despite the average Americans greater familiarity with the law, and public love of "liberty" than in the UK, you idolise a man whose willingness use the law and his personal wealth to rip off, defraud, slander, and spitefully destroy anyone opposing him is something to be praised.
Trump aspires to be a dictator, but hasn't quite managed it.
He wants to be Putin, but has achieved Nero, golfing while the US burns.
So Trump is using his powers just like those in the Democratic Party do? Colour me shocked. The difference though is that he goes after the big fish, whilst the Democrats are picking a fight with all those who disagree with them. Which in doing so will cost them for decades, because a tsunami will hit them in November.
But truth be told you are the perfect example of why Trump is where he is. It is the people like you, who cause people to vote for Trump.
