Too frightening to be funny [View all]
This link is to a column by William Rivers Pitt. It's a reminder that the Wile E. Coyote shenanigans of the Republicans since Donald Trump's inauguration actually hide the true dangers of their inherent evilness.
Mr. Pitt's takedown of the president is written with scathing humor, (emphasis is mine):
But the fearful side of the Trump Administration is what diminishes any humorous observations. Regarding Mr. Trump and his advisors, Mr. Pitt writes:
Our nation has some "pretty bad hombres" in the White House, in both Houses of Congress and in the Supreme Court. For the moment, those disparate and nefarious forces don't seem able to work together as evidenced by the collapse of the Republican's health care bill. While I do feel a sense of joyous relief at the failure of the draconian AHCA, it's sobering to remember that it failed, in part, because Speaker Ryan couldn't get the support of the Freedom Caucus as the bill wasn't draconian enough!
