Shakespeare character, Dick the Butcher, on how to install a populist rebel as king: “First, let’s kill all the lawyers.” Trump’s gang doesn’t need to kill any lawyers: they have already neutralized them by defying judicial orders, a lurch toward breakdown of the rule of law. Soon, they will likely fill the Supreme Court seat stolen from Obama, so the facade of rule of law may be preserved.

Not that Trump is a true populist or rebel. He is pseudo-populist like the corporation-created Tea Party and he is more establishment than the establishment. And he increasingly appears to be a puppet for neo-fascist Bannon.
