The past thirty months have been revealing and clarifying.
On June 16, 2015 a celebrity businessman descended the escalator in his self-named building to declare himself a candidate for the Presidency. His name is Donald Trump, and, aside from my shock at the crudity of his language concerning illegal immigrants, I barely took notice. After all, he was just one more candidate for the Republican nomination, and, so I believed, was just in it for the free publicity.
A little more than thirteen months later, in July 2016, the Republican Party officially nominated Donald Trump as their candidate for the U.S. Presidency. Four months later, in November 2016 Donald Trump was elected to the Presidency. And, for the thirteen months since his election we have witnessed a political firestorm that has melted the facades of our society, revealing disturbing and surprising information.
In this series of blogs I will attempt to “make sense of it all.”
