Why Putin Wanted to Elect Trump

Hidden beneath all the chaos of the first three weeks of the Trump administration — the  questionably legal Executive Orders, the inept wording and rollout of the Muslim ban, the tweet ravings against actors and department stores, the insults against our intelligence community and our allies, the provocation of China, the assault on our environment,  and the laughable outright lies uttered by spokespeople — there continues the quietly rowing scandal of the Trump team’s close ties with Russia.

(and we’ve seen countless examples of reich wing violence, especially since the election of the first man of color to the Presidency.)  Somehow, we must engage others and overcome the divisiveness that has been deliberately nurtured by the powerful few.  Remember the adage, “United we stand…” More
