Forget about Donald Trump and Mike Pence. Andrew Cuomo is now the acting President of the United States.

Trump continues to think that the job of president is "reality show moderator in chief." Andrew Cuomo, on the other hand, the governor of New York State and a former member of Bill Clinton's cabinet, has been doing a morning update every day this week with facts, figures, and reassuring stories about his own family. He has been showing us what humanity, decency, and competence look like.

CNN, MSNBC and even Fox News are carrying Cuomo's morning updates live nationwide. Now that America has figured out that not only has Trump been lying to them for years but that the Republican Party and their trickle down economics for the past 40 years has been a scam, the country is turning its back on Trump and the GOP.

Every time Trump speaks, the stock market goes down even more and faster. America now gets it. In Brazil, the people are demanding that right wing president Jair Bolsonaro step down because he did the same thing Trump has done in failing to prepare for a crisis that was obviously coming and then lying to his people about it for months.

Soon we will see demands that Trump step down and let somebody who actually knows how to run a government replace him. It can't come fast enough.

Interesting theory. But he still has approval of 80% of the Republican Party, and his national poll numbers haven't really changed since before the crisis.

Americans may just be a "unique" breed....

It's misleading to point out that Trump still gets an 80% approval rating from members of the dwindling Republican Party. The Independent and undeclared voters outnumber both the registered Democrats and the (minority) registered Republicans. With both leading parties favoring corporate (major donor) interests, We The People don't get much representation any more.

Hartman is asking if Trump will step down, not if he will lose the next election.

I do think Hartmann is being optimistic. Trump's base is remaining loyal. He only needs to win the swing states. The Repugs can rely on vote suppression and massive spending made possible by the GOP tax giveaways to the 1%. Right wing media engenders an alternate reality that is all-encompassing.

Yeah, that ain't gonna happen.

In fact, the opposite will happen. He will declare Martial Law and make himself Fuhrer for Life, like his pals Putin and Xi.
