A Fake Savior’s Betrayal

    Dear Trump Voters,

    You’ve been had. President Donald Trump sold you a clunker. Now that he’s in the White House, he’s betraying you — and I’m writing in hopes that you’ll recognize that betrayal and hold him accountable.

You’ll notice that he promises outcomes, without explaining how they’ll be achieved. He’s a carnival huckster promising that America will thrive with his snake oil.

    “We’re going to win, we’re going to win big, folks,” Trump declared Friday at the CPAC meeting, speaking of his foreign policy.

    Great! Problem solved. Next? He then outlined his take on drug trafficking and what will surely be his outcome:

    “No good. No good. Going to stop.” Wow! Why didn’t anyone else think of that?
