Timing is everything. I saw this Tweet by George Monbiot today:

If you are middle class, they call you a champagne socialist
If you are working class, they say it's the politics of envy
If you wear leather shoes, they call you a hypocrite
If you don't, they call you a hippy.
Everyone, apparently, is disqualified from challenging the system.

GREAT coverage (PLUS 🌟) of Trump and his Wrecking Crew's continued destruction of the last vestige of ethical behavior in the U.S. Government.   Trump 🦀 is an agent of chaos. His behavior evidences that of a person filled with the Demonic Spirit of the Antichrist.
