But I vas dere, too, Davey, and I’m here to say King Donald is really Saint Ronnie with the bark off and the barking on.
RR was not a popular president — he was fiercely divisive. The last POTUS somebody tried to take down, remember?
Who cares what tone he projected? He pumped “family values” without having any himself, religious fanaticism without interest in church, drug wars that wallowed in racial profiling.
His movie-fantasy memory system was as alarming in its own way as the seething paranoia currently in charge.
He took credit for “ending the Soviet Union” when the place would have collapsed if Yehudi was President. He was a fan of the fantasy Star Wars defense system that would have made nuke conflict much more likely.
What difference does it make if the GOP “felt” different — the goals were identical: pamper right-wing superriches and the rest of you who take up space in this country are on your own.
Finally, the relentless distortion of Saint Ronnie and his legacy was the plainest warmup imaginable for the Big Lie strategy out in the open now.
