I am on my eighth lifetime president (nine if you count Nixon ... which I can't because I don't remember him), so I have seen some greed in decision-making. But what I'm used to are under-the-radar actions and policies and laws that eventually put those passing them into position to profit from their actions. I'm used to corruption being a long game that plays out over a year, or months, or at the very least several weeks before it's clear what the personal gain is to be had.

But Cheeto and his confederation of nincompoops have elevated the level. I don't remember seeing such naked, immediate, HUNGRY grasping for greed in my life in the White House - like, there's not even an attempt to disguise what these lawless walking Ids are doing. I'm never giving a pass to Dubya and Cheney and their squadron of boobs, but that seemed more greedy incompetence disguised behind this whole built-up fiction of "patriotism" even while it was going on.

Cheeto has no such need for a floor show. He and his minions are going straight for the gold, like a shitty new CEO determined to pad executive salaries as much a possible with employee and quality cuts before he's fired less than a year later with a golden parachute severance package. And fuck you if you don't go along with it.

I guess my next question is this: Who are the adults in the room? Who is there to remove this oversized toddler and his band of thieving sycophants and profiteers - including Misogynistic Q-Tip (Pence)? Are we just supposed to ride it out for four years, with an impeachment of Cheeto at some point designed to be a placebo (it won't be; Q-Tip is every bit as bad as Cheeto, just with a smaller desired bank account)? OR CAN WE THROW OUT THEIR FUCKING FAT AND BONY ASSES SOON. Surely there must be a way to do this. Surely the founders foresaw that the quarter of the voting public who are racists and idiots might somehow bumble an unfit orangutan into the office someday, and need the adults to legally override their poor choice?

What the actual fuck.
