This episode of "A Closer Look" really frightens me. Because of what is happening in the US. Because of the anger and frustration I see in the eyes of Seth Meyers - he looks tired and worn (sorry Seth !). Because of how fast the U.S. President is sliding down now into a very dangerous dictatorial mode. Because it's even coming very close to a civil war or - worse yet - a situation where Americans (civilians) must face the barrels of guns pointed at them by Americans (soldiers). I'm not an U.S. citizen (I'm Flemish - Belgian), but I'm very worried. I hope that the protests will lead to real changes for all citizens, for black people, hispanics, asians, ... and whites ... I hope that the U.S. will find a way back (or forward) towards a place in time where Respect, Care, Commitment will be mainstream. Hopefully very, very soon. Take care Seth. Take care U.S.. The UNITED States without the word "United" wouldn't mean anything anymore.

What does he think that means? Captain Bonespurs is not militaristic - he's a coward hiding behind the thug he pays to protect him

Always remember: "I could shoot someone on 5th Avenue and get away with it." I think he is doing that right now.
And thank you, Senate....for not voting to impeach him. We will not forget at the polls. He'll let you all fail.

Trump, the billionaire who hides his taxes,
The genius who hides his college grades,
The business man who bankrupted a casino,
The playboy who pays for sex,
The Christian who does not go to church,
The philanthropist who defrauds charity,
The patriot who dodged the draft,
The innocent man who refuses to testify.
