    Democracy, civil society, etc. formed the foundation of our government until trump was elected. Trump’s personal foundation has always been built of lies, and is finally starting to crumble faster than he can con people into believing the lies.

    When (actually if) he ever gets a statue, I bet it’s named

              The Statue of Limitations

    None of those things were ever part of the Trump foundation.

    The foundation always has been going back to when Those People knew their place, enforced by open discrimination and Jim Crow laws.

    That is what is meant by Making America Great Again. Always has been.

    It stays up because the seething Flatulence inside holds it up like a hot air balloon.

    Wikipedia: “The Dillon-Wagoner Graviton Polarity Generator, known colloquially as the ‘spindizzy,’ is a fictitious anti-gravity device imagined by James Blish for his series ‘Cities in Flight.‘“

    —) But actually, acting upon the basic principles as described by Blish, Elon Musk has constructed a small working model in his laboratories. Donald Trump will wear a contraption powered by the device and rise into the air in the final weeks of his campaign. Naturally, his MAGA supporters, who thought he could miraculously walk on water, will now believe he can float through the air. They may even believe he is an angel that is finally revealing his true nature. Of course, high-ranking Republicans will not dissuade them of that belief.

    Since the spindizzy principle can very efficiently lift large masses, even whole cities, should Trump by some wild stretch of imagination lose the upcoming election — he might detach Mar-a-Lago from the Earth to take it into Space. He may even take whole Red states with him.

    And good riddance, I say. (— (—

    Trump is so anti-everything that he’s Anti-Gravity now ? I’ll bet he never heard of Issac Newton and the apple. Probably would say he’s a guy that brought him covfefe once.

    All those who voted for Trump in 2016 knew all this already. The question is: why did anyone vote for him?

    That’s the problem with gut-feel alt-reality foundations that extremists imagine to actually exist … most lies are weak and transparent.

    Now, now! If everyone would just believe everything he says and do everything he tells us to do, there wouldn’t be all these problems. God should listen-up, too! Ya think?

    Remember when this alone sufficed to topple a dangerous demagog (one who also had nothing but contempt for the US Army)?

    The combination of Li’l Donnie’s dishonesty, imbecility, cowardice, and lunacy has cost close to 200,000 American lives so far. And Vlad Putin cheers for each one……

    Mr. Toles makes the observation, in the lower corner, that, even in a cartoon, this can’t last.

    And I will point out that it doesn’t have to – it must only last long enough…

    Never was a foundation. Trump has feet of clay.

    Because the statue is nothing but a big bag of gas.
