Fortunately Trump has too many vices unlike Londo Cotton.
Trump cannot take fascism all the way, not because he has any virtues but because he has too many vices. It is right to see fascism and call it by its name. It is also right to mock it, resist it, and overcome it. https://t.co/1xwbVXHXu7— Timothy Snyder (@TimothyDSnyder) July 24, 2020
W/ all due respect, disinformation to deliberately confuse & distort public perceptions of reality shouldnÃ¢ÂÂt be normalized as Ã¢ÂÂelection year politics.Ã¢ÂÂ Esp since TrumpÃ¢ÂÂs not only deliberately mischaracterizing moms in Portland; heÃ¢ÂÂs lying to justify crackdown on peaceful protest.

Aug. 15 is about when Trump will announce heÃ¢ÂÂs replacing Pence with Haley or someone else. The timing would be intended to steal the spotlight from the Democratic convention which is the next week. https://t.co/3w4vAfdaOr— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) July 26, 2020

- – February 13, 2017 – Less than one month after Trump took office, Michael Flynn resigned as national security adviser. His resignation followed the public revelation that he had misled Vice President Mike Pence about his contact with Russians. Contrary to what Michael Flynn had told Pence, Flynn had discussed Russian sanctions in a December meeting with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
- – February 14, 2017 – Kellyanne Conway told the press that Michael Flynn’s resignation had been voluntary. Just hours later, Sean Spicer said, “Whether or not he actually misled the vice president was the issue, and that was ultimately what led to the president asking for and accepting the resignation of General Flynn.”
- – February 14, 2017 – The day after Michael Flynn resigned, FBI Director James Comey reported Donald Trump requested a private meeting] [BP2] to “talk about Mike Flynn.” Trump told Comey that Flynn had misled Mike Pence about his conversations with Russian representatives, but that Flynn was “a good guy.” Trump said he hoped Comey could “let this go.”
- – February 14, 2017 – In the wake of Michael Flynn’s resignation for lying to senior officials and interacting with Russian representatives after the election, Donald Trump tweeted, “The real story here is why are there so many illegal leaks coming out of Washington? Will these leaks be happening as I deal with N.Korea etc?”
And then there’s local thuggery:

Not 9/11 related, but don't forget that our society has prioritized getting professional athletes back to work safely over getting teachers back to work safely.
