It seems pretty clear that Trump is going to turn America back into the Bush era shithole we just escaped while everyone sits back and says, “Well, Americans knew who Donald Trump was before the election, and they elected him anyway.”

People might as well start preparing for the entire country to look like Kansas under Sam Brownback. The policies he put in place exemplify the GOP playbook to the letter. They have their boilerplate and they intend to impose it on the entire nation.

How can the rhetoric about Trump from Democratic leaders be reconciled with their actions yesterday to protect his unchecked power to spy on Americans?
