President Donald Trump outdid himself yesterday by suggesting that four Democratic congresswomen originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, and that they go back to those broken and crime-infested places from which they came.
People ran for cover.
Many responded by accusing the president of racism, and labeled his comments xenophobic. Others accused him of xenophobia, and said his comments were racist.
One of the four women was Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who, should she be forced to go back to the broken and crime-infested place of her birth, would find herself back in New York, a mere 12 miles from where Trump, himself, first plunged head-first into the world.
Some analysts think Trump is trying to see how far he can push his rivals.
Some analysts think Trump is having a nervous breakdown.
Some analysts think Trump is about to detonate.
The initial 2016 comments that Trump seemed like "a breath of fresh air" in politics, now feel like they were made a hundred years ago.
Constantly pushing back boundaries and breaking new ground, which Trump marks out as 'his territory' by laying a huge Trumpegg in the form of a political turd, can only last as long as people are prepared to put up with it.
Normally, in places like the UK, general elections are effective in getting rid of a wayward politician.
In America, assassinations tend to be the order of the day.
