So many import and disturbing updates in Micah Sifry’s latest FirstÂ Post at Civicist: Aberrations.
This pointÂ from Evan Osnos in The New Yorker probably freaked me out the most:
â€œSince Election Day, Trump has largely avoided receiving intelligence briefings, either because he doesnâ€™t think itâ€™s important that he receive them or because he just doesnâ€™t care about them. George W. Bush, in the first months of 2001, ignored warnings about Osama bin Laden. Only in our darkest imaginings can we wonder what warnings Trump is ignoring now.â€
Also, I learned a new word “Americanism.”
