The Rump Trumpies

by digby

They are a shrinking minority, but they hold all the power of the United States government


Trump's base is less than 30% of the voting population. And yet the government they support is destroying the country and nobody can do anything to stop them for another year. There are institutions that are trying. The media is working overtime. They Department of Justice was able to keep one little bit of institutional integrity when Sessions recused himself (before fully realizing that those rules are no longer operative --- just ask Devin Nunes who also recused himself and is just ignoring the recusal.) But really, as long as the Republicans congress remain total whores --- and there is no evidence they will change --- Mitch McConnell's getting ready to welcome an ideological nutcase and molester of underage teen age girls into the US Senate as we speak.

The system is not working.
