Democracy is an afterthought for Trumpists. Whether it’s the “sense of style” or “good men knowing their limitations” the movie character of Dirty Harry played by Clint Eastwood resembles the RWNJ fantasy of transcendent morality embodied in some westerns.

Trying to “hang” their Vice President and kill “their” cops may have brought an end to the 170 year two-party duopoly. Their GOP/conservative media has already made the split.

OANN is Donald Trump’s new favorite teevee network, and that makes a ton of sense — because it’s basically Fox News on bath salts, chewing away at America’s jowly face until we’re all too confused and exasperated to fight back. Its White House reporter, Chanel Rion, has tossed Trump a...
