What “norms” would that be?

A lying media?
A faithless and lying Republican and Democrat party who’s only constituency is the Cocktail Crowd?
Special interest running the Government?

I don’t want those “norms”.

They totally re-establish. And truth be told Trump is part of that norm. The norm of American politics is that we run in one direction for a while, realize that didn’t fix everything (because you can’t actually fix everything), so then we run the other way. Trump is the direct result of Obama not fix everything (or anything in his case). And Trump won’t fix everything, so we’ll flip around and go the other way.

“makes it harder for us, our country, to ever get back to normal.”
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Normal = importing cheap labor and making sure there is no enforcement of borders and immigration laws.

The Democrats and MSM brought us here by rejecting the outcome of the 2016 election. It's not President Trump's fault that we're here.

And let's not forget that in the 1800 election, Team Jefferson called Adams a hermaphrodite, senile and insane, and was also was accused of ordering the minister of France to bring back young girls for him.

Team Adams called Jefferson a dishonest lawyer who cheated his clients, soft on immigration and would flood the country with French and Irish "refuse of Europe," and an atheist who would confiscate family bibles.

The fake news of 1800 called Jefferson, a Virginia aristocrat and slave owner who lived luxuriously at Monticello, a "man of the people." Adams, a farmer's son who despised slavery and lived frugally in common style and means, was called an aristocrat who would enslave ordinary people.

So far, 2017 isn't all that different from 1800.

ZGod save us from the norms that governed politics. May we be governed instead by the strictures of the Constitution once again.

The NY Slimes represents “the corruption of our public sphere” and that has been going on for decades.

For years these people have been held unaccoutable. They’ve been dishing it out for decades, but now find they can’t take it.

‘His Rotundity’ was another favorite epithet...
