President Donald J. Trump
By Eve Berliner
Out of the darkness of fascist history he emerges – a madman, an incitement, a thermonuclear provocateur. Vengeance is his instinct. Stomp on the desperate, the huddled masses, the wretched refuse, the weak, the poor, the besieged. Lady Liberty is weeping.
The Trumpian Age, a time of chaos and venom. A Mafia mentality upon the stricken land.
Donald J. Trump, a snakeskin sheen, snake eyes, ready to strike.

Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, Barack Obama be damned. The President who does not read or pity, unending mendacities, stupidities, turning reality on its head.
A surreptitious coup unfolding in his mind:
Apocalyptic visions of a terror strike on our soil, an earthquake, a killer epidemic and the tyrant will seize the moment, he and his henchmen, declare a state of emergency, impose martial law, the militarization of the streets, consolidate full control.

The illegitimate president is crumbling. We the People reside in revolutionary times. The revolutionary right belongs to us. We must put an end to this psychotic presidency – so dangerous. Everything we believe in is in jeopardy. Everything we cherish. The planet earth, the human struggle for justice and mercy and love for one’s fellow man.
Oh, his enormous, crude greed.
We must do everything in our power to remove him, his brainless, puerile finger on the nuclear trigger.
