I certainly concur with you, Mike, the interchangeability of the good and bad guys. With the base human ego’s mandate to survive at all cost and to seek advantage at every opportunity, good and bad is simply relative to what we believe supports our needs of the moment. Certainly Trump is a vivid example of this human characteristic.

And, yes, the political talking heads are still behind the curve on how much Trump is, and has been, in the Russian camp. Except for a few Republicans of strong character, the GOP has been showing ample flexibility in coming into the Trump/Russian camp.

And of course the Evangelicals love Trump. Being of a kind who pray not so much for their daily bread as they do for their daily delusion, con man Trump is most definitely their kind of guy.

Nice article, Mike.
