The Monday Night Massacre

He hasn't been in office for two weeks, and already he's topping Nixon in outrageous behavior.

Tonight President Trump fired the acting Attorney General Sally Yates, who defied to enforce the presidential order to ban all Muslims from entering our nation legally; except of course, from those nations that Trump does business with, including the one that spawned 15 of the 19 September 11th hijackers that killed over 3,000 Americans.

He wouldn't want to offend his business partners, after all.

Sally Yates (American hero) is a patriotic citizen and a thoughtful attorney. She looked at the facts and made a studied decision (unlike Trump's usual tactic of seeing what his Greek chorus of fascists want to do) and she said the order wasn't legal and therefore not subject to DOJ enforcement.

She was immediately fired, and Trump's people skipped the regular order of progression in this case and found a Trumpette lawyer to fill in as acting AG.

If there was ANY doubt that Donald Trump is the most anti-American president we've seen in several generations, this will likely erase it.

We need to, as Americans regardless of party, block ANY Trump appointees from the cabinet and any posts that he may fill.

This isn't about politics. It's about preserving our nation as a free democracy and keeping it from the hands of hateful greed-mongers who only seek to enrich themselves while at the same time crushing the middle class and stripping them of their wealth.

This is a call to arms (figuratively). We need to act out, speak out, and show the world that we don't agree with a dictator who once he was made the leader, used his power for evil.

We've already seen that act about 80 years ago. It sucked then, and it will suck now.
