3. So well said - it's almost like a poem.

Mr. Trump eats your soul in small bites.
It starts with your sitting silent while he lies,
Both in public and private,
Making you complicit by your silence.

His assertions about what 'everyone thinks' and what is 'obviously true'
Wash over you, unchallenged,
Because hes the president and he rarely stops talking.
He pulls all of those present into a silent circle of assent.

Speaking rapid-fire with no spot for others to jump into the conversation,
He makes everyone a co-conspirator to his preferred set of facts, or delusions.
I have felt it this president building with his words a web of alternative reality
and busily wrapping it around all of us in the room.
