The Opposite of Rosy

I don’t need pundits telling me to chill because what we currently see in Washington has been seen before. It doesn’t feel that way to me. Please don’t try to normalize this, as if there is precedent for what’s happened since 2016!

As far as I’m concerned, Donald Trump is, hopefully, a one-off, an aberration, a symptom, an ugly person who needs to go back to whatever he was doing before. It seems to me that our leadership has been infiltrated by the dark side. And does Congress ever do anything other than take turns investigating, accusing, and obstructing?

The whole Mueller Report release is a joke. Foxes in the hen house in charge of redaction, Barr a hand-picked lackey now claiming that the FBI was spying on Trump. Whatever truth Mueller uncovered will remain buried under layers of redaction and secrecy.

There really is little reason to have faith in our elected representatives. Even if they start with the best of intentions, it seems it’s only a matter of time until they’re caught up in the vortex of partisanship and stonewalling, and they sheepishly line up behind their “fearless” leader.
