And I wonder how can a supposedly "civilized" country take such decisions without - I don't know - an institution which can prevent the President from making some obviously absurd, anti-democratic choices. Is the President so free? In Italy all this would be unthinkable.
And the American people? All silent. (Except for a few who will be soon considered communists).
Ah, how right I was. How I saw through this long, long ago. And how sad that even today there's almost no self-criticism - even from those on this board who think of themselves as "open-minded" and "intellectual"...
2016 is over. Please post these kinds of comments in the Life Under Trump thread.
I really don't know what you're talking about. There have been protests against Trump and his crap all over the country as well as the world at large.
We are in a constitutional crisis. The courts are involved. Border agents at the airports are being directed by Gen. Flynn to refuse court orders not to deport people with visas who have already arrived. Bannon in effect is the President, Trump the salesman and Flynn the flunky. The three of them belong in jail, not the White House. Unfortunately, nothing Trump has done in his executive orders is illegal, just immoral, imprudent and dare I say, insane.
