Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus appeared in a joint interview at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) outside Washington, D.C. and the former provided a glimpse of the crypto-fascist mentality that informs POTUS45* and his White House.
It was quite unlike the pageant queen’s interview segment where “world peace” was the main goal for a winner or her runner-up.

Criticism of Trump's anti-transgender maneuver has been swift and vocal.
It's destined to fall on deaf ears, however.
It's ultimately going to come down to the business community to stop it because it's so bad for business.

In my life I've been very, very fortunate. I've gotten to points at which I thought I would NEVER make it past without severe damage to my mind and body.
These points may seem trivial to some, but they're an examination of how hard you have to fight at least on a personal level, to make it past those events that you have considered nightmare scenarios. There will be a point afterwords, I promise.
Trump's immigration/deportation exercises are getting a lot of pushback from the liberal community. Frankly, I find myself wanting to feel that this issue is really important, but honestly, I just don't give much of a shit about it. All countries have borders and many of them are far more strict about controlling immigration than the US. I don't see anyone actually advocating open borders, which I could understand at least for the functional consistency of it.

This might be a little rough because this
perturbs me pisses me off.
What the hell do Trump and his team "think" they're doing?
You might find this hard to believe if you spend all your time watching the news of even perusing the various political forums and soicla media platforms on the internet. There the desire the demonize and label people evil, bad or "deplorable is strong. It can, if you let it, cause you to lose all faith on the kindness of strangers.
