Steve Bannon wants to have Fauci and Wray beheaded and their heads put on spikes outside the WH. DiGenova wants to have Krebs, another Trump appointee, executed. Who talks like this? Trump's lawyers and advisers, that's who. And let's not forget Kushner's comments on NYers dealing with covid 19:
"According to one attendee, Kushner then began to rail against the governor: "Cuomo didn't pound the phones hard enough to get PPE for his state ... . His people are going to suffer and that's their problem."
Add to that Stephen Miller's deliberately cruel family separation policy at the border, and you begin to understand how the so-called family values, pro-life, Christian GOP has let itself be corrupted by its own sycophantic embrace of all things Trump. Trump and his team have been trying to create an alternate reality, based on alternative facts since day one. Fake news, fake elections, fake reality. The plan was for someone, whether in individual state governments, the courts or if need be the Supreme Court, to come in and declare Donald Trump the winner regardless of what the actual vote counts were. I guess we should have seen it coming:
The aide said that guys like me [Suskind] were "in what we call the reality-based community," which he defined as people who "believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality." I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. "That's not the way the world really works anymore," he continued. "We're an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you're studying that reality-- judiciously, as you will--we'll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that's how things will sort out. We're history's actors ... and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do."
Bill Barr Defends Michael Flynn Reversal: 'History Is Written by the Winners'
Trump had previously hinted that he was considering a pardon for Flynn. After denying he was doing Trump's bidding, Barr was asked how history would remember this move. "History is written by the winners, so it largely depends on who is writing the history," he said with a sly smile.
