My submission to this thread:
Trump is racist trash. However, I think his BS these days are more of a distraction so his grifting family and cabinet can rob the country to pay back his foreign debts and Putin is really running the country and using the things that have been the elephant in the room (racism, finances, uncouthness, etc) as the driving forces to do it. He's decimating the economy, civility, and legal system without a single weapon and Trump's narcissism is perfectly fine with it as long as he's getting his ego stroked.
Y'all know the saying: Some people get a little bit of power and don't know what to do with it. Trump feels as though all the governmental agencies are different departments in his own personal company. He views the US government as a company. We all know his companies fail and the country will too unless he's gone.
In the midst of all the corruption, they're trying to start a race war. I don't think it will work because families are so blended and people are more civil than in the past. Are bigots still around, sure. However, I think civility will win over ignorance. I also think it will get worse before it gets better. We just have to not give up. His plan is to keep us in a state of conflict until we give up. Some of us are too ornery to accept what we know isn't right no matter how much lipstick you put on the pig.
Out of chaos comes order. Will you be strong enough to survive it? Don't accept what you know to be unnecessary drama. We all know right from wrong. Continue to do what's right.
Thanks for coming to my TED talk.
