In our view, the two basic questions: In our view, nothing has changed in the wake of the Mueller report.
We still have two separate tribes telling two separate stories. Each tribe is talking to itself.
This is the way cable news and the Internet currently work. At this particular point in time, tribal division is big business as well as an ingrained trait.
Speaking from within the tribe which votes for Democrats, we'd say there are only two current questions:
Is Donald J. Trump mentally ill? Also, how can we talk to The Others?
Again and again, liberal reporters and pundits have agreed to avoid that first question. As a result, we're "shocked, shocked" every day concerning this reigning president.
It's Groundhog Day and Casablanca all rolled into one, minus the brilliant comic relief driving that second film.
Regarding that second question:
No, Trump can't sensibly be impeached, or removed from office, as long as so many of The Others see the world from his point of view. Nor is it clear that he can be defeated for re-election unless we learn how to persuade a bunch of The Others to see things in the admittedly brilliant way We so impressively do.
We tend to make zero effort to do this. We simply call The Others names, as members of our war-like species have always tended to do.
Mayor Pete tends to take a different approach to Those People, The Others.
Is Mayor Pete allowed to do that? Is he a deplorable too?
