The title of my blog post today is a quote from this news article: http://www.newsweek.com/trumps-first-year-long-national-nightmare-nowhere-near-over-786142

The news article starts off with this quote:

Donald Trump has been a nightmare, and as the Robert Mueller investigation moves forward, the nation is endangered by the unpredictability of the 45th President, and the refusal of his party to face its responsibility to the nation at large.

We are in a constitutional and foreign policy crisis far greater than even Richard Nixon presented us 45 years ago. The most unpopular President in his first year in office since public opinion polls began 80 years ago, Donald Trump, the popular vote loser by a massive margin of nearly 3 million votes, governs outside of the party structure much of the time, and displays clear authoritarian leanings that endanger all Americans and their basic freedoms and national security. That includes the one third of the nation which adores him.

To try to summarize the damage Donald Trump has done cannot easily be accomplished in one essay, but as best as this author can do, here is an attempt, with the understanding that so much that is detrimental has occurred that even seasoned journalists have trouble keeping up with it all.

Donald Trump has undermined the judicial branch with his attacks on federal judges and his selection of incompetent and unqualified nominees for lifetime positions on the district and circuit courts.

[…]

Donald Trump has assaulted the Bill of Rights and is a threat to the civil liberties and civil rights of African Americans, Latino Americans, Native Americans, women, gay and transgender Americans, and to members of the news media who dare to investigate and question his white supremacist, nativist, racist, and misogynistic utterances and policies.

Calling the free press “the enemy of the American people” puts him in league with dictators and authoritarians in nations like Russia, China, Turkey, Egypt, and the Philippines and in the tradition of such past regimes as Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and the Soviet Union.

Michael Wolff, author of the book “Fire and Fury,” dropped a bombshell claim on Friday that President Trump may be having an extramarital affair in the White House.

Wolff appeared on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday night and said, “There is something in the book that I was absolutely sure of but it was so incendiary that I just didn’t have the ultimate proof.”

When Maher asked whether it was “a woman thing,” Wolff responded, “Well, I didn’t have the blue dress,” in a reference to the key evidence of Bill Clinton’s relationship with Monica Lewinsky.
