"I would be honored to meet with Kim Jong Un" - President Donald Trump

You know, Dennis Rodman can be forgiven, because he's Dennis Rodman.
It's a good thing that the old frustrated Austrian house painter isn't still alive. I'm sure he would be honored to meet him, too.

He's honored to praise and emulate him, anyway.

These cast of dictatorial characters are those for whom Trump aspires. It has been obvious from day one that strongman leaders are his role and wet dream models. And hold his most dear aspirations while he works up his perspirations.

It would not be so disconcerting if Mr. Trump did not have his enormous cast of sycophantic lemmings who will love him all the more for that no matter what outrageous stunts he pulls—— Anywhere. D. Trump had commented awhile back on the campaign trail that he could shoot someone in broad daylight in NYC, with many witnesses present, and his followers would not care. Yer darn tootin they wouldn’t care! In fact, if the hypothetical victim happened to be a Clinton/Obama “liberal” it would be all the better, and they just might then and there fire up a celebratory parade in his honor.

Mr. Trump will always have his 40% who will love and adore him no matter what he does. The more outrageous behavior the better. The big question is— how do the rest of us deal with that very sizable and dangerous minority when the chit soon hits the fan as it will—-Big Time…..
