Trump is not a Republican. He is an egotist who used the party to promote himself with the skill of P. T. Barnum. He has no agenda outside of self-glorification. He thrives on the spotlight of chaos he shines on himself. He revels in the defense of his thoughtless and dangerous actions. Logic and fact do not sway him or his true believers. Republicans gave him the platform. They unleashed the monster and have no control over this King Kong who destroys all in its path. Solution? Vote in 2018, no matter how hard it has been made. Vote in 2020. Do not let hopelessness or apathy or distraction keep “Republicans” in charge. Let the beauty of the ballot box kill the beast.
