We have just learned that Fox News can be considered the propaganda arm of the White House. President Trump now has what every other dictator in the world has, a “state-run” news outlet that will give a voice to whatever he wants us to hear/read and wants us to believe.
I have mentioned before that the president has all the signs of wanting to be and acting like a dictator. There is a reason why the Founding Fathers had put in place the “checks and balance” system if we were to elect an authoritarian president like Trump. This would give us a vehicle to remove the president before irreparable damage could be done.
Trump ignores the rule of law and does what he wants to do, with accountability to no one. Trump has already trashed our values by making lies, cheating, racism and non-compassion to be the “normal” virtues that he deems important.
With investigations into his finances and the Trump Organization, the Democrats (oversight committees) have the ability to finally go after his taxes and we will learn the truth. Let’s not speculate, let the reports speak for themselves.
We have given this president “the keys to the kingdom” and I am sorry and ashamed for voting for him. The Republican Party is no more. Trump has captured it and made it into his image. By not standing up to him, the party regulars, with few exceptions, have become as corrupt as he is.
To his “base” and supporters, are you ashamed? If not, then why not?
