The reason why Trump’s authoritarianism will succeed in this country is because of a weak opposition party. After the 2018 mid term elections and the adults in the room for the Democratic Party took the reigns in the House I thought there would be a disciplined, mature, principled, effective opposition to the worst administration in American history that would lead to a restoration of normalcy in American politics. Sadly that hasn’t happened. This news headline is proof of the Democratic impotence in Washington. Wolf shouldn’t even have the job of Director of Homeland Security. He’s occupying it illegally. He’s just one of many Trump has handpicked to work in his administration with the only job to do Trump’s bidding regardless of what it is or the consequences to America. However, America and Democrats go on acting as if this is all normal and there is no threat to democracy.
