It's certainly a ****-up of note. Trump as ever a stinking discordant note sounding out in all the wrong ways. We can hope sanity will prevail, but the way things have generally been going I think the end result will be more bullshit.We're witnessing a massive escalation of the tensions between protesters and police. Trump calling for stronger crackdowns and military intervention is just exacerbating the situation. We've seen days now of extreme brutality from the police, on camera - everything from beating up kneeling protesters, smacking around and arresting journalists, pulling off gas masks so they can spray people, and tear-gassing peaceful crowds so they can make room for Trump to speak. And in return we're seeing alarming and unacceptable violence against police, even murder.
And in the middle of it all is Trump, who seems to have decided that taking an absolute stand against the protests, using all kinds of police and military force, is the best course of action for his campaign.
