'I hope your family dies in front of you': Rep. Dingell responds to the cruelty Trump has wrought

I don’t understand the appeal of cults, and I get death cults even less. A Trump death cult? Now that’s bizarre. Ten years ago, if you’d told me either Donald Trump or Screech from Saved by the Bell would lead a political movement that embraced racism, cruelty, and barely veiled violent threats while steering our country to the brink of fascism, I’d have assumed the culprit would be Screech. Because I’m pretty sure Dustin Diamond, the farceur behind the famous Saturday morning school jester, knew how to read. And he seemed far more charismatic to me than Trump, despite the stabbings. And while Screech wouldn’t leave Lisa Turtle alone, at least he didn’t invite her to join him on Jeffrey Epstein’s private jet.

So, yeah, I still have a hard time wrapping my mind around the whole Trump thing. And my mind is pretty elastic most of the time. Except when it comes to Trump, the sriracha enema our country didn’t need and never asked for.
