Trump started off Week #41 by insulting our most trusted and important ally, Great Britain, claiming they are suffering an “Islamic crime spike,” pissing off everyone in the UK and a billion Muslims worldwide.

Not wishing Latinos to feel left out, he also announced he was “pausing family reunification,” an immigration policy reuniting heavily vetted and approved immigrants with their immediate families, a humane and practical policy.

Then Trump proposed limiting immigrants of any kind to to 50,000 aper year, the lowest number in the history of this nation of immigrants.

On Saturday Senator John McCain slam-dunked the president without mentioning his name with a statement criticizing wealthy young men who avoided the draft during the Viet Nam War by “getting a doctor to say they had bone spurs.”

Only two of McCain’s Republican colleagues in the Senate had the nerve to join him in condemning Trump, Senators Bob Corker and Jeff Flake, who are both retiring next year. Corker has been repeatedly calling Trump crazy and unfit, and Flake made a speech of scathing condemnation of both Trump and the Republican party.

Meanwhile, the rest of the GOP leadership was openly sabotaging three Congressional investigations of the Russian Collusion Scandal, echoing Trump’s demands to limit their scope and bring them to an end, adopting a bizarre “nothing to see here, move along” attitude about one of the biggest scandals in American history.

If anyone wonders why Republicans don’t desert an obviously mad and unstable Donald Trump who just might be a Russian plant, they figure he’s just desperate enough to have some actual legislation passed with his name on it, and just crazy enough to sign off on these bills currently before Congress designed to dismantle America as we know it:

1. HR 861 Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency

2. HR 610 Vouchers for Public Education

3. HR 899 Terminate the Department of Education

4. HJR 69 Repeal Rule Protecting Wildlife

5. HR 370 Repeal Affordable Care Act

6. HR 354 Defund Planned Parenthood

7. HR 785 National Right to Work (this one ends unions)

8. HR 83 Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities Bill

9. HR 147 Criminalizing Abortion (“Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act”)

10. HR 808 Sanctions against Iran

Trump also managed to completely alienate the grieving (and pregnant ) widow of one of the soldiers killed in Niger, then started a Twitter War with the Congresswoman who witnessed Trump’s callous and dismissive condolence call, as well as doubling down on hurting the Gold Star widow and mother of two small children yet again, and creepily bragging on national TV that he (!) remembered how to say LaDavid, because he had “one of the world’s great memories.”

He somehow turned honoring a fallen American soldier into just one more sordid and vulgar Trump circus; abominable, unacceptable, cruel and somehow all about him.

In another lightning change of subject, The President and the Republican Party finally addressed the opioid addiction crisis in America with something other than harsher drug laws and longer prison sentences. Now that it has become painfully obvious that a large portion of Republican voters are addicted, White, rural blue collar conservatives, Trump decided to act.

And act he did, putting on another frivolous and bizarre performance while addressing a grave issue, offering no solution but his magic wand.

He pledged no money, facilities or professional personnel to fight addiction, but did promise to solve the opioid crisis with “a great ad campaign.”

Think “Just Say No” in neon lights.
