Fourth Reich,

An enlightening article entitled Mr. President: ‘Just who the hell do you think you are?, appearing in the February 14,2017 Miami Herald written by Leonard Garvey Pitts, Jr.


  1. “I am struck, not by the criticism of Trump as such, but by the tough, disrespectful terms used. Not that they are undeserved, but I don't recall a mainstream newspaper carrying a column like this. And Pitts is not some punk blogger whose every other word is an expletive, nor a wingnut outlier. He is a regular contributor to the Miami Herald and the author of several books.” . (He was nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in 1993; he won the honor in 2004)

    “When respectable writers feel entitled to address the president in this way, something is brewing...”

  2. Donald Trump is crafting his presidency in the model of dictatorships. Vladimir Putin and his cronies must find this endlessly amusing. The Supreme Leader of Iran, and Kim Jung Un are smiling at the irony. Silence the press, intimidate the judiciary, scold dissent and proclaim unquestioned power. Where are Republican voices, have they no shame ? Will they sacrifice all of our freedoms for their precious tax cuts for the Top 1% ?? Oh wait, all freedoms except for the Second Amendment.
