As the Trump era of corruption by default and on demand start to wind down, this accomplices and constituents are addicted to his style of executive branch administration.
Many of the GOP and their respective subordinates have become accustomed to criminal and unethical behavior. Many were encouraged by the commander-and-chief to engage in highly questionable activities, with assurances of a pardon should the plots and subversive behavior trigger criminal consequences
The latest addict is Lindsey Graham. Senator Graham has been Trump’s unsolicited advocate espousing whatever narrative the Whitehouse tweets for the day. He has backed the Trump madness without question, until now.
Trump’s loss to Biden has him wandering around aimlessly, literally doing nothing other than golfing. Lindsey along with some other addicts have taken a strange position asking the election official in Georgia to destroy ballots, which is a federal felony. Now there are calls for Lindsey to resign.
Steve Bannon was arrested and charged with defrauding hundreds of thousands of donors through a campaign to crowdfund the construction of a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.
Roger Stone, Trump’s longtime friend and an official on the then-candidate’s 2016 campaign, was arrested in January 2019 in a predawn raid at his Florida home.
Michael Flynn, served as Trump’s first national security advisor before resigning less than a month after Trump’s inauguration.
Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was convicted in August 2018 of tax and banking crimes. He later pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges ahead of a second trial, which was also related to Mueller’s probe.
Michael Cohen, the president’s longtime personal lawyer and fixer, pleaded guilty in 2018 to multiple crimes, some of which related to Trump. Cohen pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations related to his facilitation of hush money payments before the 2016 presidential election to porn star Stormy Daniels and Playboy model Karen McDougal in exchange for their silence about their alleged affairs with Trump. The president has denied the alleged trysts.
Rudy Giuliani was recently pranked by the British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, best known for his character Borat. Cohen tricked the former New York mayor into giving an interview with a young woman he was told was 15, an ill-fated hotel encounter that ended with Giuliani in bed either tucking in his shirt (as he claims) or, as some viewers suspect, engaging in on-camera onanism.
Maybe the Trump political sideshow of criminal brinksmanship will start to slow. Some Republicans are quietly acknowledging the election was decisively won by the Biden/Harris ticket.
The Trump legacy will hang over politics and policy for the foreseeable future. The Senate will probably be held by a Republican majority with the means to stall and engage in obstructive, legislative tactics.
Hopefully the country can find its footing on more stable ground after the inauguration. Black people have little to do with this present day extremism, yet Blacks have been targeted with volatile wrath, extremist residue.
Whites must come to grips the bloody hands heritage their forefathers passed on to them, but until they do, Type-A self righteous bigots will continue to stoke fear in the hearts of the clueless herd of followers.
