RNC HEADQUARTERS, TRUMP TOWER — Why are the Republicans so delighted, now that they have elected Donald Trump as our 45th president?
Is it because he tweeted, just this morning, that he wants to forfeit the US citizenship of any citizen who burns the American flag, even though the Supreme Court has emphatically already ruled that any statutory provision making such conduct illegal is unconstitutional?
Is it because he has 144 companies in 25 countries, posing, in superb Trumpian fashion, multitudinous potential conflicts of interest?
Or is it because he wants to replace Justice Antonin Scalia with a Scalia clone?
Is it because he has picked ferocious anti-ACA opponent Tom Price, a Congressman from Georgia, to head the Department of Health and Human Services, with the specific assignment of repealing the best effort yet made to put some sense into our broken health care system?
Or, is it because his Chief Strategist, the perpetually unshaven Stephen Bannon -- that's right, folks, the Alt-right Breitbart News guy -- has spent much of the last decade using many of the complex financial mechanisms employed by the largest financial services firms to enrich himself, even as he constantly lashed out against Wall Street?
Or is it because the president-elect wants to strengthen the ever-growing, ever-ascendant GOP agenda of discouraging marginalized folks from voting?
All of these questions are so easy to answer, because our intrepid associate solitary reporter, Johanna Jones, who is constantly at The Donald’s side, has just informed us that Mr. Trump told her, “ You ain’t seen nothin' yet! I’m just getting started!”
