Discussion: WSJ: Trump Inaugural Donor Faces Second Criminal Probe

He seems nice.

I hope one or more of the Democratic candidates promise to hold a pot-luck inauguration if they win.

This is as good a forum as any to announce that Trump and the Right are far more interested in vilifying people of color below a certain income level than POC per se.

This is one of a number of examples.

Recognizing this goes a long way to subsequent realizations. It simply take sitting down, turning off the phone, the teevee off and talking…with lots of questions paired with answers.

Lyndon Johnson: “If you can convince the lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he’ll empty his pockets for you.”

That is the Republican Party Strategy in one sentence, and Trump’s lifetime mantra.

As Charles Blow said in a NYT opinion piece:
“For white supremacy to be made perfect, the lowest white man must be exalted above those who are black.
No matter how much of an embarrassment and a failure Trump proves to be, his exploits must be judged a success. He must be deemed a correction to Barack Obama and a superior choice to Hillary Clinton.
White supremacy demands it. Patriarchy demands it. Trump’s supporters demand it.”
