On January 6, President Trump and his “deplorables” made the US Empire look dysfunctional to the whole world by overtaking the Capitol, causing those corporate tools, our “elected representatives,” to run and hide. Does that set a bar for what is needed to bring health care for all, to end what Martin Luther King called the three evils of society: poverty, war and racism?
Trump has antagonized the US ruling class by placing his own interests above the interests of their class as a whole. As Democratic Senator Schumer righteously waxed, “This will be a stain on our country not so easily washed away.” Indeed, thanks to these Trumpers, politicians’ future talk of “American exceptionalism,” about the US as the world champion of “freedom and democracy,” will now bring snickers around the globe.
