Monday Reading - "Parasitic Presidency"

The New York Times' Charles Blow has a hard- hitting op/ ed on the shitgibbon (as usual, the entire piece is worth a read) and concludes:
This is a 70-year-old man who has lived his entire life as the vile, dishonest, incurious creature who got elected. That election validated his impulses rather than served as a curb on them. 
Trump will continue to debase and devalue the presidency with his lies. Trump will continue to follow Bannon’s philosophy of internal deconstruction of our government, its principles and its institutions. And Trump will continue to leech as much personal financial advantage as he can from the flesh of the American public. 
That’s who Trump is. America elected a parasite.
In his op/ ed, Blow cites the number of Executive Orders signed by the shitgibbon (16 in 45 days) having a broad impact on the lives of Americans. The use of these orders to further the "deconstruction of the administrative state" (as advisor Steve "Loose Cannon" Bannon has put it) have impacted environmental quality, gun laws, financial controls, Obamacare and immigration/ border "security" among other areas.  But it looks like these nihilists are far from through:

If that doesn't send a chill down your spine, you're not paying attention.
