Ahh, John Eastman. Trump’s favorite toady MAGA lawyer who thought up the ill conceived memo about how Trump could “legally” stay in power. If you read the thing carefully, it’s very breezy and caviler about how Trump might end American democracy once and for all.
Here’s the ending of something Eastman recently posted.
This is very bonkers because it’s like the “Spiderman pointing” GIF in written form. Or, in a sense, it reminds me of Lincoln’s Second inaugural address about how much the two sides had a lot in common and yet they still decided to settle things on the battlefield.
Eastman is a prime example of one of those guys who should know better. He’s an intelligent, well educated person…who has gone all-in with MAGA Republicans. It’s only because of enablers like Eastman that Trump has gotten as far as he has.
And, in the end, this is yet another sign that the United States either implodes into a MAGA-themed autocracy or we explode into some sort of civil war, caused by a National Divorce.
