Experts On Authoritarianism Weigh In On Trump's Presidency

No need to worry. Nope. None at all. We’ll all be totally fine. Yeah. Fine…

He’s not POTUS, he’s SCROTUS (so-called ruler of the United States).
The Trump supporters I know are ignoring his deeds. I think it is a defense mechanism. If they pay attention they’ll have to admit their error.

Trump’s chief policy adviser says the president’s power ‘will not be questioned’ by the courts Hello authoritarianism. Lindsay Gibbs Senior White House Policy Adviser Stephen Miller raised plenty of eyebrows on Sunday as the perused the talk-show circuit talking about cases of voter fraud (that don’t exist) and Steve Bannon’s lack of involvement in drafting executive orders (which, according to most reports, is the exact opposite of the truth). But perhaps his most alarming statement was in reference to the federal judges in Washington rejecting President Donald Trump’s Muslim ban. “I think that it’s been an important reminder to all Americans that we have a judiciary that has taken far too much power and become in many cases a supreme branch of government," Miller told John Dickerson of CBS News, as first noted by Will Saletan of Slate. “The end result of this, though, is that our opponents, the media, and the whole world will soon see, as we begin to take further actions, that the powers of the president to protect our country are very substantial and will not be questioned." Miller’s boss was, unsurprisingly, watching his performance, and gave the 31-year-old rave reviews.
@realDonaldTrump Congratulations Stephen Miller- on representing me this morning on the various Sunday morning shows. Great job!

The White House is essentially gaslighting the public. And the idiot rubes and hateful bastards that support Trump just run with it because they all live the same world of alternative facts as Trump.
And Darron, I’ve always loved the term SCROTUS. And not just because it sounds like scrotum. It’s just so apropos. Bannon is the true POTUS after all.

Here’s an interesting interview

'Alternative Facts': How And Why Propaganda Works February 06, 2017. By Jamie Bologna and Meghna Chakrabarti This morning, President Donald Trump tweeted: ... He declared that he doesn't accept any negative polls as a reality and that the only polls he believes, and the only polls he thinks you should believe, are ones that put him in a positive light. That's why Jason Stanley thinks the United States has entered into a new era of political propaganda.

He also has some talks up on YouTube. Provocative and worth listening to if you are interested in understanding why all those good decent American's feel in love with a absolutest faith-blinded fascistic character out of central casting.
