As you know, the Trump White House “re-upped” its assertion that the FBI shared in the blame for the Parkland Florida deaths because it investitgated possible collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians. “Russia, if you’re listening …”

Well, since the White House did not walk the statement back today, I find it worthwhile to look at the nation’s response. Sometimes the unity we see in responding to Trump, the collective repulsion, is quite honestly the most “hopeful” aspect of being American in the age of Trump. i realize that is saying something, but it does not make it less true.

“Breathtaking narcissism” Like you look at the statement the first time and think: “He couldn’t possibly have said that, did he?”

And, to sum up our national condition:

That’s about right, yes.

Sigh.
