The Trump Report that dropped last night raised many disturbing observations.
It’s disturbing we’re even continuing and expanding a conversation regarding potential extreme and perhaps successful foreign interference into American government in and beyond an election.
It’s disturbing that in the face of wild allegations our President-elect’s erratic and unpredictable behavior could allow Americans to pause and believe perhaps the report isn’t too outlandish and perhaps it’s even true.
It’s disturbing that a media outlet could so brazenly ignore journalistic integrity and publish unverified claims in the belief that American citizens can figure it out. Truly “We Report, You Decide.” And truly reckless and irresponsible. Which brings up one important observation.
What’s most disturbing, perhaps, is certain folks’ ability to fully accept or fully refute every word of the Trump report without verification. Simply because they hate Trump, many Americans reveled in potential treasonous behavior from the PEOTUS. And conversely, simply because they love Trump, many Americans lost their mind refuting the report entirely as fake news, rushing to defend their champion without fail.
The extreme and vile disgust so many hold for opposing political views and alliances poses a greater threat to the nation and our democracy than potential Russian interference or Trumpism. Unfortunately, many Americans hate the other side more so than they love America as displayed upon the explosive reports release last night. Frankly, it’s a shame. Divided, we will fall.
Any destruction of America will occur from the inside out, and the seeds are being planted.
