Remember how they’d throw a Flag Desecration amendment on the ballot every two years? Federal, state, local—it pulled the ticket-voting R’s to the polls forever. (Mitch McConnell didn’t like the amendment, probably liked the votes.) Donald Trump can roll an oldie into his playlist, but should we talk about it, or not? Or not-not, or not not-not? David Waldman refuses to give this folderol more than 50 minutes attention today.

Trump does have a knack for rallying his followers.

Meanwhile, Greg Dworkin sounds the klaxons for the end of democracy. Alt-Right White Supremacists rejoice, and also continue their angry victimized whining. The Anti-Bernie is now in power, and is just one of Trump’s free passes. Did you know the Donald Trump plans to get rid of Obamacare? Yes indeed, and as HHS secretary, Tom Price is the best pick for that job. Then on to Medicare, Medicaid, etc. Greg remembers the successes of the HHS Pandemic Flu Leadership Blog. Yes, Newt Gingrich wanted Medicare to wither on the vine as well. Trump continues hiring precisely the people needed to carry out his plans.

Forget the conspiracy stuff, forget the Russians, disqualified ballots accounted for many more votes than Trump’s win. How to listen and respond to calls for an audit and recount.

There is a whole bunch of crazy going on in Trump Deputy-NSA designee Kathleen McFarland’s family.

​David Brooks addresses the imminent threat of the Alt-Left.
