Nice piece, Eric. But I think what pisses off a lot of the sane folks, it’s just another instance where Trump is the arsonist starting a fire so that he can be a heroic fireman rushing in at the last minute to put it out. One of these days he is going to start a fire he can’t put out and the whole planet will go up in flames. He is a child playing with matches in a dynomite factory just for the thrill of it. This is what he has always been about in much less dangerous situations to billions.
