Yes, I totally agree. The reason for the selection of an obviously incompetent idiot is disturbing and, while we all, I think, would prefer that the skills that brought him victory were somewhat farther up the evolutionary scale, you are right, that would only bring greater danger. It is also possible we may end up thanking Trump for the pleasure of watching the leadership of the Republican Party made to grovel as he destroys the party system but that may be hoping for too much. The current leaders of Congress are not people for whom groveling is seen as a negative. So little real pleasure there. And while the destruction of the Republican Party could bring some satisfaction I’m afraid the Democratic Party will simply wander off into the weeds and never be seen again. So, in the end, an ignominious collapse of the American Empire with bumbling clowns running in circles is the best we can hope for. I’m surprised at how pleasant a thought I find that.
