Our faces are all locked in perpetual scream now!
Edvard Munch could never have imagined what a perfect metaphor his masterpiece would become for the cataclysmic Trump era.
One shock after another. Every time you think it can’t get worse, it gets worse.
Vladimir Putin wanted Trump to win because he hated Hillary, who had stood up to him like spineless coward Trump never could, and because he wanted to sow the seeds of chaos, incompetence and, essentially surrender.
Now Putin has a worshipful puppet, probably compromised by embarrassing videos and, even more critically for the shameless Trump, damaging information on financial crimes, money laundering, business deals that violated sanctions and, yes, more collusion [and CONspiracy] than Mueller was able to document.
And Putin’s investment is generating incredible return on investment:
• Trump alienating allies and dissolving treaties
• Trump imposing tariffs on goods that Russia can now rush in and undercut on price
• Total chaos in the United States government
