The sky won’t fall if Democrats get elected in droves in November, or Republican resist a wave. The world won’t end if Donald Trump is sent packing, either, but you wouldn’t know it from the president’s fund-raising pleas and Republican hand-wringing. Demographics are more likely than anything else to change the country. It doesn’t matter that James Comey is skewering the president, or whomsoever may sit in seats currently occupied by Paul Ryan or Mitch McConnell. It’s pretty clear that young people, already, hate Trump and his bellicose politics by a large margin.
In 2014, Gallup found that Baby Boomers, (born between 1946 and 1964), were skewed slightly Democratic by 2%. The Millennials, (born between 1980 and 1996), however, favor the Democratic Party by a 20-point margin. According to CNN, the boomer population peaked in 1999, with 78.8 million members. Pew Research put it in context; Millennials are expected to overtake Boomers in population in 2019 as their numbers swell to 73 million and Boomers decline to 72 million.

Throughout most of his first year in office, President Trump has been saddled with low poll numbers. Politically, the President has been damaged by the ongoing Special Counsel investigation into Russian involvement in the 2016 election. Even though no “collusion” with the Russian government has been uncovered by prosecutor Robert Mueller, the investigation has resulted in two guilty pleas and indictments of two former Trump campaign officials.
Ok, it's Friday afternoon, a big news day, and time to sound off.
So, Donald Flynn is in—the hands of Robert Mueller, the special counsel. No matter how the Trump loyalists want to spin it, this is horrible news for the Trump administration.
When I say spin, that is exactly what I am seeing.
Here is just one sample of a tweet that is on point, from chief apologist, Jeffrey Lord.
Alabama has emerged as a test bed for the degree to which an American electorate is willing to sacrifice long established, customary, norms for the sake of illusory political advantage. The battle between a besmirched, but defiant Republican, Roy Moore, and a bland Democrat, Doug Jones, also, will demonstrate the degree to which the Republican Party has embraced a belief that the end justifies the means.
President Donald Trump’s irresistible impulse to take on everyone, and anyone, over anything, consequential or not, is a detriment to Republican values and leads to the inescapable question of whether Trumpism needs Trump, any longer, to advance its mission.
