Before 2016 if you told most Americans that Donald Trump would become president, they would have laughed or thought you were joking.

Of all the depredations Donald Trump has exposed my tender, guileless soul to, making me feel warm fuzzies for a Cheney — however fleeting those feelings may have been — is perhaps the least forgivable.

Trump’s staff may have tricked him into thinking he has a line-item veto. Attention-seeking becomes purer for the desperate POTUS*.

Honestly, I’d be surprised if Donald Trump didn’t want a North Korea-style military parade at the heart of his inauguration — complete with goose-stepping, FFS! — but that doesn’t mean it’s not jarring to see it in print.
