This is short and to the point. Donald Trump’s egregiously selfish and dangerous photo op Sunday, waving to the crowds while holding his two Secret Service agents hostage in the SUV breathing recycled air with him, has been roundly condemned. It’s purpose was to play to the base — like everything else. And stroke his ego — like everything else. And Trump didn’t care what the cost was — like everything else.
Trump's #RideToNowhere was the perfect metaphor for the end of Trump’s Presidency.

The man can’t change. Or, as he himself puts it, “it is what it is.” Yes, it is what it is. And what will be will be.
