Trump is not alone in his quest to destroy America. He has his band of enablers, cultists who embrace his goal of turning this nation into a coven of toxic beasts crawling out of his sewer of corruption.

The poll also shows most Republicans favor wearing masks for protection from COVID-19, even though their party’s president does not. He says lately that he thinks they are a “good idea” but then criticizes them in his tsunami of tweets.
Creating a “secret police” to go into American cities, detain protestors and abuse rights brings protests from Republicans and Democrats.
His admission, however, came in a return to the daily virus briefings that is, basically, a one-man show to showcase his lies and exaggerations.
The ‘troops’ often wear camo without markings or identifications as federal law officers and are charged with using violent tactics against protestors. Both Republicans and Democrats are upset over Trump’s latest tactics. The mayor of Portland, Oregon, says Trump is “breaking the law.”
Trump openly admits that getting involved in the briefings has nothing to do with concern about the virus or its threat to the American public. No, it is all about the TV ratings. White House aides, however, privately say it could hurt him even more politically.
With polls showing a widening gap to overtake Biden, Trump rattles on with lies, confusing claims, and actions that finally have cause for concern and an increasing number of Republicans to doubt his veracity and competence.
