Trump: Special Counsel ‘Hurts Our Country Terribly’

As he so often does, Donald Trump is conflating his own interests with the best interests of the country. During a meeting with TV news anchors, he said that the appointment of a special counsel “hurts our country terribly” because it shows that we are divided.


No Donald, it hurts you terribly, or at least has the potential to do so. The nation is divided, has been divided, and will always be divided, regardless of your short-term interests or desires. You ran a campaign based almost entirely on fear, on dividing Americans and making them afraid of one another, and of everyone else. It takes some serious chutzpah to claim that investigating your possibly criminal actions is what is dividing us. Without such divisions, you wouldn’t be president. Because that’s what demagogues do.
