    In some sort of way it is actually becoming great again.

    Mueller was and is a Republican, appointed by a Republican, but unlike the craven shitstains in the Senate he has chosen to uphold democracy.

    Trump and his followers aren’t republicans either. They are populists.

    That dude in Texas retiring early is a republican though - his platform is purely economic.

    Is she like my grandmother who was kinda into Hilary when she was running against a black man? Then 8 Years later, Hilary is the worst person on the planet.

    Aren't they fake populists? They say they're operating in he interest of the people but are really out for themselves and their corpo buddies.

    Aren’t all politicians fake in that degree?

    Yeah. But I'd say the Trum team is particularly egregious.

    I'd argue rank and file Republican politicians are more just your standard corporate oligarchs who use Jesus as their wedge issue to divide and conquer (as opposed to Democrats who are oligarchs that use identity politics as their wedge issue). They make the kool-aid.

    Trump and his buffoons are what happens when you let the people who drank the kool-aid run the show. It's all of the evil with none of the subtlety or sense of decorum. His fans like that he has none of the subtlety or decorum but neglect the fact that he's still evil and will still take every opportunity to fuck them out of their money and freedoms.

    Thankfully, he's such an egomaniac and so terrible at anything required of a politician (diplomacy, bargaining, tact), he'll continue to fall on his face when trying to accomplish anything that isn't EXACTLY what "his" party wants.

    Fox News is now having a field day because "The Podesta group did the same thing as Manafort". I can't tell what the actual details are, but apparently the group is under investigation by Mueller.

    Someone needs to tell the conservatives that Hillary isn’t president.

    Are you saying that republicans don't use identity politics? I know it might be a bit harder to see since they are increasingly focusing on a single identity.

    Every time I hear Trump talk about "Extreme Vetting", I am reminded of Manafort.

    Fair point. I guess I've just always seen the racial dog whistling and blowing up brown people as a subset of their Christian death cult.
