“We’re in Crazytown. I don’t know why any of us are here,” he reportedly said. Kelly was known to refer to the president an "an idiot," commenting that “it’s pointless to try to convince him of anything,” while his predecessor, Priebus, described Trump’s bedroom—where he watches cable news and writes furious tweets—as “the devil’s workshop.”

Trump’s magical mixture is to make being afraid feel like fun. His rallies are a hybrid of concert revelry and combat prep.

In a series of comments about nude modeling at About.com, a graduate student remembered "the sound of 20 erasers rubbing against paper [recording] the change in anatomy," as the only discernible reaction after a model had a hard-on during a pose.

      "Something I been wondering about you," Lamont said. "You guys are coming to own the world.  You fly across the planets, Mars and that shit. What you want with crack?"
     "We seek to broaden our minds." 
      Lamont snorted. "Right. You might as well hit yourself in the head with a hammer."
     "We seek escape," the alien said.
     "I don't buy that, neither. What you got to escape from?"
     The Krel looked at him. "Nothing."

     "I lied to Colonel Zipp," it said. "We want cocaine for kicks."

The essence of Trumpism is dominance and punishment of those outside the tribal fold. It is probably even wrong to call this a policy of deterrence. It’s a policy of punishment...This isn’t a byproduct. Child separation as punishment, on display, was always a feature not a bug.

This is open corruption, and it has been openly embraced.

That fills me with grief, but my grief can’t make it untrue. And if this benthic sadness has any value, it’s that clarity. There is no more equivocating to do. You don’t have to equivocate about Trump’s corruption—or Wilbur Ross’, or Scott Pruitt’s. You don’t have to parse whether a “falsehood” is really a “lie.” It is simply true that the president is corrupt and that his supporters celebrate his corruption.

One thing we learned this week that we should always remember: A majority of Republicans in this country support prison camps. For kids.
