I am convinced that Trump cheated and manipulated his way into being POTUS, in collusion with an unfriendly foreign power. I am willing to allow that he himself may not have explicitly given orders to rig the results, but having long since become a pawn on Putin and the extreme right (Pence, Ryan, Bannon, etc.), he played right into their hands and remains under their control. The Russians gamed our system; Trump was not elected by the American people. He is not a legitimately elected President.

Trump Tweets so explosively, we buy into his smoke screen. Ignore his histrionics -- pay attention to what's happening! The truth is that our country is now run by a gang of plutocrats bent on looting America for every penny they can get at the expense of the most vulnerable: women, the poor, working people, people of color, LGBTQ folks, immigrants, Muslims, and so forth.

I have run out of patience with "respecting the office" or "giving him a chance" or dancing around the truth. We are perilously close to a fascist plutocracy and about to plunge into the abyss.

The sooner the investigators can find enough stuff to indict him, the better. And that goes for the slimes in the FBI who covered all this and raised all the smokescreen foo foo about Hillary the week before the election.

I'm not sanguine about the chances of an indictment or impeachment. Yet, anyway. Sooner or later, however, either the Towering Tantrum will flounce off in a huff or the GOP will realize how much damage this loose cannon is doing to their party (which clearly they rank above the welfare of the country) and dump him in favor of Pence.

Who is really dangerous in other ways, but at least he seems to be familiar with the Constitution, and how Congress actually works.
