Greg Dworkin brings us the news, most of it about Donald Trump, exactly as Trump planned. Donald Trump leads Republican polling, because more Republicans support and approve of Donald Trump. Because they too dislike and are afraid of Muslims. Because they too want authoritarian government. Because they too are drawn to the Fascist path. Because they, like Trump, see how Palingenetic Ultranationalism is not as “hat friendly” of a slogan. Because Trump is them.
Donald Trump originally set himself apart from other Gop candidates by being rich, incorruptible and not PC.

Or, if you have a set of compelling deals for him. Or if you have a set of compelling deals for his daughter. Or, even if you were just a Saudi Prince that owned one $48.5M apartment. Or, you Just wanted to buy Derek Jeter’s old World Tower Penthouse — Donald Trump can be generous and flexible during these times.

Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore, who has made a career for herself by posing to show off her gigantic and imposing weaponry and guns, would like to travel to Paris to meet up with Syrian refugees and then by “putting them down, blacking them out, just put a piece of brass in their ocular cavity and end their miserable life.” The ones in the water may not be sporting enough for her.
