On the heels of pipe bombs sent to prominent liberals, Donald Trump feigned outrage and called for national unity. Then, after realizing he let down his cult, he tweeted, “A very big part of the Anger we see today in our society is caused by the purposely false and inaccurate reporting of the Mainstream Media that I refer to as Fake News. It has gotten so bad and hateful that it is beyond description. Mainstream Media must clean up its act, FAST!”
And that pretty much sums up today’s Republican Party: They want unity, but only on their terms. What they are really saying is, “Why can’t Democrats unify with us by loving Fox News and hating brown people, uppity women, the poor, and the environment as much as we do?”
Sorry, if that’s what it takes for unity—fuck unity! How about instead Trump and the Republicans actually give a shit about something other than power, greed, and guns?
