U.S. President Calls for End of Democracy

I'm quite certain that, even a year into Donald Trump's democracy-hostile presidency, my headline sounds like hyperbole. I regret to say, however, it is not.

This morning, in response to Senator Dianne Feinstein's applaudable decision to publicly release the full transcript of Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson's testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee about the infamous "Trump dossier," Donald Trump first tweeted a deeply anti-Semitic (and misogynist) tweet about Feinstein.

Trump immediately followed that with a tweet proclaiming that "Republicans should finally take control!"

I don't know what to say that I haven't said a thousand times since Donald Trump first announced his presidential bid. He is a dangerous authoritarian who poses an existential threat to the republic. Here is the definitive proof, for anyone who is not inexplicably inclined to continue to pretend he is saying something other than what he is; that he could ever be something other than what he is.
