That guy is like a cancer spreading throughout - most of it quietly.

One-time Canadian prime minister Stephen Harper tried a similar thing by slashing funding to Stats Canada and making changes to the census.

Fortunately, shortly afterwards he was given the heave-ho from office and now toils in obscurity somewhere in Calgary.

On the upside, Trump is so illogical that he doesn't even lie well. And making things up is his chief claim to fame.

I am seriously concerned what will be left of democracy after this presidency.

It certainly is a "teachable moment."

Every generation has to discover the reasons why human rights, voting, term limits for presidents, separation of powers and so forth are valuable for themselves. Otherwise they forget. It's easy to follow a leader or a slogan. Democracy is an interesting idea, but it's only sustainable so long as people buy into it. Once they start rejecting it, it crumbles quickly, and is replaced generally by incompetent dictatorship.

Hopefully something good comes out of it. A fresh look at the electoral college and equal weight for each vote would be a good place to start.

Already we know that the claim that the electoral college protects us from demagogues is bullshit..it has actually given us one. The voters were actually wiser than the vaunted "wise" electors.
