1. "... the normalization of behavior Americans once found intolerable

even in their children and house pets."

And nobody will put Trump in a time-out or rub his nose in the mistake he made on the carpet (not that you should do that to your dog, but Trump needs to have his nose rubbed in his shit).

2. Can't recommend this enough
