One of the saddest, and yet most accurate – and possibly prescient – articles I’ve read recently, on the sorry state of affairs going down in US affairs of state, under Donald Trump’s aegis.

“We have the tin-pot leader whose vanity knows no bounds. We have the rapacious family feathering their nests without regard for the law or common decency. We have utter disregard for values at home and abroad, the disdain for democracy, the hunger for constraining a free press, the admiration for thugs and strongmen worldwide.

We have all the makings of a banana republic.” ~ David Rothkopf
