Funny, Dolt 45 is attacking Amazon, which happens to be run by the guy who just bought the Washington Post, which is critical of Dolt 45.

Here's the best take I've seen [stolen from comments on Pierce's column]:

. . . in Trump's attempt to erase the legacy of the Obama presidency, something else is involved here, the thing that always is involved when one sees Steve Mnuchin and Gary Cohn standing near the podium: the desire to create a new Gilded Age.

Beyond Trump's personal animus toward his predecessor, these rule rollbacks will allow big corporations to build infrastructure more quickly and cheaply, and also get paid more in profit, and more quickly, than if the rules remain in place.

But separate and apart from these particular climate change is the big picture. This. "The administration proposes $200 billion in government funding over 10 years as part of a goal of getting $1 trillion in public and private infrastructure spending." Translation: the privatization of public infrastructure on a massive scale.

This, as much as abandoning the fight against climate change, the embrace of fascists and racists, and the attempt to disenfranchise voters of color, is the pernicious and dangerous threat the GOP and this administration pose to America as we currently know it.

I saw somewhere that is part of his strategy.I didnt knoa about any new attack, but its been coming up from time to time. 

Obviously we are in bad shape, and obviously there is no clear way out.  We really need to eliminate the majority status of the Repubs,  Problem there is lack of vision, reality, class, guts, ethics, and charisma in the Democrat wing.

Precisely. If it ever finally sinks into his thick orange skull that every sentient being in the universe doesn't worship the ground he walks on, his head's going to explode. I'll be hoping the pieces don't fall on me.

And this is surprising HOW, exactly?  Seems as though anyone saying a discouraging word about Orange Julius gets a tweet-storm parade for their trouble.  I'm just waiting for a significant someone to tell dear Donnie where to stick it and how far up!
