Donald Trump’s White House is, unsurprisingly, completely scandal-ridden. First, he fires the acting Attorney General, Sally Yates, for doing her job. Then, his first National Security Adviser is forced to resign in disgrace after just 24 days for lying to the vice president about his connections and conversations with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak.
After that, he fires the man who is investigating his potential collusion with the Russians to fix the 2016 presidential elections, FBI Director James Comey. And then, on the same day it is revealed that Trump leaked state secrets to the Russians from the Oval Office, another bombshell drops that reveals that the now-fired James Comey left a paper trail that points to potential obstruction on the part of the president.
It’s way too much to handle for the nation, completely exhausting, not to mention damaging to America both at home and on the world stage. However, the Trump White House cares not about any of this; in fact, they are actually using all of their self-created scandals to discredit the media even more than they already have among Trump’s base, and raise money for his 2020 campaign while they’re at it.
TIME’s Zeke Miller tweeted out an image of the email that Trump’s people sent out among all of this fury, and it’s a real doozy. Here is the Tweet:

Of course, this plays right into the narrative that Trump used on the campaign trail to fleece his people – the media is fake and out to get him, that they are all “globalists” who were in the tank for Hillary. Now that Trump is president, his 2020 efforts are already under way, and he is continuing that same dangerous and ridiculous narrative and is using the bully pulpit of the White House to do it.
Democrats, we have to put someone up who can beat this monster in 2020. Hopefully, he doesn’t stay in the White House that long, but in the case that he does, we MUST take him out at that time. We’ll be lucky to survive four years of this. We definitely will not survive eight.
