But, Republicans don't care about destruction - they do it all the time. Criminality is a constant in Republican politics.
But the real crime is that they seem to have managed to normalize it to the point where they're convinced that they can get away with it.
I guarantee you that any Democrat who attempts the same will be met by a screaming chorus of Republicans demanding prosecution to the fullest extent of the law, and beyond.
The real crime is, Trump Republicans believe that not only is Trump above the law, but that the only real law is that which issues from his mouth as he speaks it.
The real crime is, Trump Republicans do not see America as a nation of laws, but only as a nation of men, men like Trump who utter the law as he sees fit.
We are now just another banana republic, with better shopping malls, bigger trucks and bigger highways.
