President Obama’s Attorney General, Eric Holder, appeared on MSNBC this Sunday to give President Trump a verbal lashing for his deeply disturbing attempts to undo the checks and balances that protect out nation from tyranny and for his disgraceful lack of accomplishment in his first 100 days.
Slamming the President’s first 100 days as “carnage of American rights,” Holder nevertheless drew inspiration from Trump’s reign of authoritarian incompetence, believing that it will be the catalyst for the forging of a Democratic Renaissance.
“You have seen in the chaos, and lack of accomplishment in these 100 days, things that give me great pause, and I think it’s the basis for a renaissance of the Democratic Party,”
Trump is the inevitable manifestation of Republican extremism and their relentless efforts to gut the American middle class and funnel as much money as they possibly can to their ultra-wealthy overlords.
The ease with which the Republicans agreed to try to strip health insurance out of the hands of 24 million Americans and boldly propose cutting the taxes of the very wealthiest Americans and making the middle class make up he difference is just the beginning.
Holder is absolutely correct. The close races in the Kansas and Georgia special elections are just the beginning of a tidal wave of change.
