Riot police have just entered the airport in Hong Kong, where pro-Democracy activists are trying to maintain what freedom they currently have from being taken away by the Commies in Beijing.
In North Korea, a smiling Kim Jong-un, continues firing rockets into the sea.
In Russia, thousands of anti-Putin protesters are in the streets, demanding real elections as opposed to an ongoing dictatorship that either imprisons or murders the opposition.
Here in the U.S., Donald Trump thinks Putin is a good guy and – as has been indicated by his words and actions – wishes our system was more like Russia and North Korea, so he could declare himself president for life and throw big military parades on Pennsylvania Avenue.
Donald Trump obviously does not believe in government of, for and by the people. He’s taking this ride strictly for himself.
Why is this so difficult for some to understand? How can Donald Trump still have a “base?” Who are these people who support a leader who favors tyranny over democracy and his own personal enrichment over promoting “the general welfare” and securing the “blessings of liberty?”
