Well, we’re about to face another week of Trump. While there is no shortage of issues to be concerned about, it is important to focus on the totality of his efforts rather than any single act. It is clear that his goal is two-fold. First, he is doing everything he can to destroy the Obama legacy and all that it represents. Second, he is working to abide by Bannon’s goal to “dismantle the administrative state” and the Republican establishment in its wake. Destruction doesn’t require a grand and brilliant strategy. A wrecking ball is not an instrument used for surgical precision. It may be used for indiscriminate and impulsive action as long as it doesn’t deviate from the broader goals.  Naturally, these two very important goals are subservient to the overriding themes of his life….survival, self-enrichment and self-aggrandizement. He is the head of the Trump Family Grifters. He defines this role in everything he does. Don’t get entangled in the details. We need to view all that he does through these lenses.
