I just get so bloody fed up with engaging with these people who claim to be "the voice of reason" with "no axe to grind" who always, without fail, turn out to be a long, long way right of centre politically, often seemingly without even realising it themselves. But oh, one thing they do know is that they don't like lefties!
In the mean time, and back in the real world, I think that Trump has more or less taken on the mentality of a defeated and retreating army that destroys everything as it goes - crops, livestock, bridges, roads, railways, buildings - any and all infrastructure that the advancing army can use in the future. He is, in essence, burning down America, while all the true autocrats and dictators around the world just rub their hands in glee that he's made their job so easy for them.
False equivocation... Good phrase.
A bit like equating a threat to kick someone in the nads (unpleasant and distressing as that may be), with the very real, very actual death and bloodshed wrought upon innocent people in the name of right wing beliefs
Equivalency - which I since edited to fix the typo - but yes, quite.
