Something creepy has been going on in the nation. President Trump is the personification of this creepiness. President Trump has made choices. And, the truth is, he is holding the nation hostage with cooperation of the Republicans in Congress.
A rationalized approach is for the Democrats to be the adults and to find a way out for the president to save face. However, anyone finding a way for the president to save face is not mature and is not acting like an adult. Rather, he or she will not only set a bad precedent but also, he or she will have facilitated the entry of tyranny in American politics and America.
