The repeats above are from the President of the Untied States, Donald Trump. He isn’t attacking ISIS. Or Al Queda. Or North koreans. Or Iran. He isn’t verbally attacking Vladimir Putin or Russia for eroding our most cherished democratic foundation, our free and fair elections. No, he is saving all his spite and bile for other Americans and then vomiting it out at them via his Twitter account. Day after day after day after day. Again and again and again.

In his latest tirade he tweeted a meme taken away from health professionals grappling parallel he was involved in( yes, I know, he accuses the mainstream media of being #fakenews with health professionals wrestling gif) where his opponent’s head has been replaced by a CNN logo. The suggest for Trump, I’m sure, is that he’s a macho, alpha-male who is getting the very best of the press and TV bulletin in rough and tumble hand to hand engagement. That’s not how many of us see it, however. What we see is an open, tyrannical threat of violence towards one of the traditional the examinations and compensates on executive power. Furthermore, it’s an attempt to ruffle up his fanatic devotee base, which is now chomping at the chip to pick up their weapons and start a brand-new American Civil War.

Actually, there are two different things going on at the same hour, both of which are inextricably linked.

The first is Trump’s assault on the press. Just prior to the wrestling meme tweet, he engaged in a brutal Twitter war with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski of MSNBC’s Morning Joe program, both of whom used to be friends of Trump. In world, almost all of the viciousness was on the part of the president. He referred to his former friends as psycho Joe and crazy, dumb as a rock Mika, before making loose with a despicable insult to her lookings that I won’t dignify by repeating here. Misogyny, of course, is nothing new to the former reality TV whiz, who seems to be particularly scared by the combination of women and blood, but the attempts to delegitimize the media and mounted himself up for his followers as the sole judge of reality and world is something we haven’t seen in this country in a very long time, if at all.

At the same time, brand-new attest is rising every day that the Trump administration did, in fact, collude with the Russians to hack the 2016 general elections and set Trump as chairperson.

It’s no longer a matter of contention that Russia did interfere in the election. Every major intelligence agency in the U.S. is in agreement on this.

As former FBI chief, James Comey, famously said in his televised testament before the Senate,” Let there be no fuzz on this whatsoever. Russia did interfere in our election. This is a information .” The only parties in the two countries who refuse to accept this judgment are Trump himself and his legion of cult-like adherents.

The most recent revelation, which came in a pair of articles in the Wall Street Journal this past week, was that longtime Republican activist, Peter W. Smith, attempted to obtain Hillary Clinton emails from Russian hackers in the working day leading up to the 2016 referendum, while mentioning Michael Flynn, Steve Bannon and Kellyanne Conway as his contacts in the Trump administration. These new details are divulging out on a weekly, if not daily basis, from longstanding supporters of the American press such as the New York Times and the Washington Post, before being mass delivered to the American parties via CNN. At the same season, former FBI Director, Robert Mueller, has been identified special attorney in charge of investigating Russian election interference and he is stocking his unit of distinguished attorneys with lawyers very well versed in an organized criminal and coin laundering. Trump himself has not been instantly related at this moment but I dream he must be starting to feel the noose gradually closing around his cervix.

The Russian hacking sight has become a auto accident that the American people cannot look away from. Donald Trump, however, would very much like you to look away. This is why his attacks on the press are happening.

If Trump can convince you that CNN and the Washington Post and the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal are do nothing but telling lies; because this is #fakenews; and that the only source of factual datum is the president and his chosen propaganda sources like Breitbart and Fox News, then you might not believe your own seeings and ears when the inevitable patch of incontrovertible evidence of his collusion with Putin and the Russians is broadcast to the country. You know his obsessive, adoring love club won’t believe it.

The difficulty with this is that he has persuasion his cult that the American news media have joined with secret points in our government( who they refer to as” the deep position “) to deposed the democratically elected president( who acquired fair and square) for no other reasons than spite and hatred of this country . There are some severely unbalanced parties amongst the working group who are now expressed his belief that the press are the foes of America and are ready and willing to take up limbs to safeguard Trump, who is, along with his enablers, the real deserter here. I have several sidekicks who are now political reporters and they are now receiving death threats from lived Trumpers on a daily basis , is not simply for themselves but too their partners, spouses and children. In an attempt to cover up his crimes and the illegitimacy of his presidency, Donald Trump is playing a very negligent play with American lives. What happens with these parties, on fire with fury and hatred for the media, when Trump is eventually uncovered?

Donald Trump will, almost certainly, be the loser here. I have very little doubt that he will face impeachment and quite possibly prison for what he’s done. I perturb, nonetheless, about what happens next.
