Ugly Times Lie Ahead

Trump is desperate to be reelected. He knows that if he isn’t, he will be exposed to criminal prosecution and possible prison time. His prominent supporters will be exposed as the knaves they are as well. That’s why Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent warned yesterday that Biden and other Democrats must be “prepared for the massive onslaught of absolutely brutal and distortive attacks that Trump and his propaganda apparatus will wage,” including  “shamelessly propagandistic media manipulation and outright disinformation tactics.”  

     There’s no question that this will happen, and that the Russians will be doing their best to help. It’s an indication of the moral disintegration of members of the Republican establishment that they  countenance such tactics –– they have already shown that they will.
