I wrote a response to the question of how could this have happened to the US that I think got lost in the shuffle. Let me try to explain. Henry Kissinger wrote a paper many years ago saying that a revolutionary force could take over America by a ploy....
If that force succeeded in winning an election to high office it could promise to adhere to constitutional rules and norms without actually doing so. The US works because political parties generally play the same game by the same rules.
If a revolutionary movement refuses to adhere to the rules of our government by insisting that it IS playing by the rules, it forces any other dissenting branch of government to resort to legal remedies. While these dissents crawl their way through the courts
the revolutionary force simply continues its anti-constitutional reign. Anytime Trump does anything anti-constitutional, we say you can't do that and he does it anyway. Then we have to go to court once again and the crawl begins anew.
In this way, the Trump regime can both ignore laws and norms while being in fact protected by laws and norms.

The only thing we can do now is vote him off and in future pass far more rigid laws against revolutionary autocratic forces like Trump and the GOP.
