Don’t you wonder what the oligarchs were thinking when they let Trump take the election? Leading politicians are refusing to attend the inauguration & saying they don’t recognize his presidency as legitimate. He’s self-indulgent, out-of-control, & a whopping pile of horse manure.
They probably thought he could best execute a rightward shift in politics but he’s also likely to create a massive opposition movement. Maybe they’re reconsidering. Maybe they still think it’ll work. Maybe there’s a crisis of leadership they can’t resolve in a system spiraling into barbarism.
