Yet Another ‘Bombshell’ In A Presidency Where Bombshells Are The Norm

  This is a terrific supercut of all the times in this Keystone Kops level administration that the words “bombshell” “tipping point” “walls closing in,” and my personal favorite, “beginning of the end” have been used. Take a walk down memory lane.         Just another #BombShell that blew up in the #FakeNews media face. #EnemyOfThePeople pic.twitter.com/6Lm9vFy055 — Steph (@steph93065) January 19, 2019 And this is the problem. We’re all numb. A thought about where we are as a nation: We're living in the age of the unsurprising revelation. Is there anyone who doesn't already believe that Trump-Putin-treason is a real thing? Even Trump loyalists surely know it's true, they just think it's an OK price for the racism 1/ — Paul Krugman (@paulkrugman) January 18, 2019 The question instead is when and whether the evidence will become so dramatic, so blatant, that Trump's defenders won't feel able to keep pretending they don't know. That is, it's not really about what we learn but about how it plays 2/ — Paul Krugman (@paulkrugman) January 18, 2019 Think of the Steve King story as a dress rehearsal. Everyone knew what he was, and has for years. Somehow, though, we reached a tipping point where GOP leaders felt they had to say "We're shocked, shocked to find open racism going on in our party!" 3/ — Paul Krugman (@paulkrugman) January 18, 2019 I don't know if we'll ever reach that sort of tipping point with Trump. But even if we do, remember: they've known all along, but were willing to sell out America as long as it was convenient 4/ — Paul Krugman (@paulkrugman) January 18, 2019 In just a few short years, as a country we’ve lost the ability to be horrified. This is not good. Politics has always been a feral business, but Trump has thrown aside any pretense of dignity or decorum. I don’t know if we’ll ever find our way back.
