The Man Who Is Even More Repulisve than Trump, Concluded
Trump would be nothing without people like the new Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, who have chosen to embrace the Trumpian agenda to advance their careers, as they see it. Johnson is determined to withdraw U.S.support for Ukraine, exactly what Trump wants and exactly what Putin wants. Johnson unreservedly supports authoritarian brutalists in their great confrontations with liberal democratic societies. To borrow the title of the final book written by the late journalist Tony Judt, ill fares the land.
