Donald Trump's First Week

Eliot A. Cohen - The Atlantic:

Precisely because the problem is one of temperament and character, it will not get better. It will get worse, as power intoxicates Trump and those around him. It will probably end in calamity—substantial domestic protest and violence, a breakdown of international economic relationships, the collapse of major alliances, or perhaps one or more new wars (even with China) on top of the ones we already have. It will not be surprising in the slightest if his term ends not in four or in eight years, but sooner, with impeachment or removal under the 25th Amendment. The sooner Americans get used to these likelihoods, the better.

So much packed into that paragraph. So much that cannot stand. To quote a great man, "a house divided against itself cannot stand."

Reading, watching, and thinking on what’s transpired over the past week I’m in agreement with that paragraph. This will not stand.
