I am just watching this again, an extremely powerful and thoughtful documentary on the birth of what was to become Trumpism after the 2008 financial crisis and the growing divide in the US. Interviews are great.

"It hardly comes as news to say the US is deeply polarized politically. Yet "America's Great Divide" -- a four-hour, two-night Frontline documentary -- not only traces the roots of that division through the Obama and Trump presidencies, but comes close to concluding that the situation is beyond repair."

https://www.pbs.org/wgbh/frontline/f...bama-to-trump/
Actually the full individual interviews (available on Youtube) are even better than the documentary itself. Especially the Republican ones (Schmidt, Luntz ... Coulter .... even Bannon).

Good to know. In typical PBS style, it moves SO SLOW. I was thinking individual interviews might be more interesting than slogging through the whole thing, but never thought to hunt on YT.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

The opposite of parting on good terms.
Quote:
Former CIA Director John Brennan on Monday took to Twitter to announce that he now plans “to ignore Trump,” and will “leave his fate to our judicial system, his infamy to history, & his legacy to a trash heap.”

“For four years, I spoke out vigorously against Donald Trump’s craven dishonesty, the corrupt pursuit of personal interests, & trampling of our democratic principles,”
“After serving over three decades in national security, I felt compelled to condemn Trump’s depravity & incompetence.”
Now in his lame-duck period, Donny is taking aim at the disabled.
Quote:
President Trump is making sure to wreak as much havoc on Social Security as he can in the final months of his term.
Now the Trump administration is trying to make it harder for workers with disabilities to collect Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).

The Social Security Administration (SSA) is finalizing two new rules that, in the words of Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), “would weaken the promise of Social Security for Americans struggling with a disability.”

If you think he had a scorched-Earth policy in the previous four years, imagine how much more he can accomplish in 57 days.

I heard that if there's someone weilding a gun, who seems to have a mission and to be very determined to shoot, one should no longer yell "Everybody, get down!" but instead: "Donald, duck!"
