Have you noticed when the media turns up the heat on Trump’s numerous and far-reaching conflicts of interest, the financial irregularities, the tax dodging shenanigans, actual newsworthy stuff, he tweets delusional and disturbing messages 1 as a distraction? A few days ago the New York Times published a piece on his widespread kleptocratic possibilities, so he launched a tweet advocating prison for flag-burners and/or stripping them of citizenship.
What, huh, flags? Where does he come up with this stuff? Ignore the fact flag-burning is protected by the Constitution; Hell, ignore the Constitution — except for the second amendment, of course — and lock ‘em up. Lock everyone up. Ship them to Siberia. Send them on a hunting trip with Dick Cheney. Ooh, better yet, waterboard their asses.
Oy. It’s going to be a long four years.

1 In today’s non-specific, detail-free tweet, Trump claims he’s leaving his ‘great business’ because it’s ‘visually important’ not to have a conflict of interest. Please, allow me to clarify: it’s okay to have a conflict of interest as long as it doesn’t appear that way. Again, oy.
