BTRTN August 2017 Month in Review: I Am A Wreck, I Am An Island

BTRTN on the careening train wreck that is the Trump Administration, as of August 2017:

"No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.

John Donne, were he alive today, would be forced to consider a rewrite.

Donald Trump declared war on the Republican establishment this month, adding those he needs most to accomplish his agenda to the long, long list of those he reviles. Trump’s enemies begin with his bitterest adversaries, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and the evil mainstream media. But many others inhabit this ever-growing continent of Trump-animus – he launched his campaign two years ago with a bilious screed against Mexican immigrants and the enmity has accelerated unchecked ever since. And now Trump’s own land is a tiny personal island inhibited only by a shrinking pool of supporters. The “wait and see’s” have seen, and have become as appalled as those who had no need to wait."
