So, the day after the elections, feeling safe from the voter's wrath, trump both fires Sessions, exposing the Mueller investigation to being undermined by a trump zealot, and stomps on freedom of the press.
Think about this a minute.
Trump is taking advantage of a lame duck congress to try to quickly quash the Mueller investigation. An investigation that has indicted or gotten guilty please from 32 people and 3 companies that we know about. The investigation he calls a 'witch hunt'. News flash donny-boy: that's not what witch hunt means.
Also, Jim Accosta from CNN was questioning one of trump's ridiculous racist claims from before the election. Trump was very much a bully, and kept trying to shut Accosta up. Then Accosta tries asking about the Russia investigation, trump actually told him to shut up.
The President is trying to kill an investigation (that has found lots of wrong-doing already) from investigating him, and then trying to shut the news agencies who are reporting about it.
When trump was initially elected, I warned you all that he was trying to become King Trump. A King who will have no respect for anyone but himself. Not me, not you, not even people who have thrown themselves under the bus for him.
Shame on anyone who voted for trump in 2016, or voted for the Republicans in 2018. You are the reason that an evil man is empowered to attack our democracy, undermine our decency, yield the world to the Russians and the Chinese, and make a laughing stock out of the US.
When the history books look back and try to figure out when exactly US democracy died, tonight may well be a day they consider.
