The Hour's Getting Late: Trump Says He Has the "Absolute Right to Do What I Want With the Justice Department"

Thu, Dec 28, 2017 at 6:54:36 pm

So tonight, Donald Trump said this to a New York Times reporter:

“I have absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department.”

And if that doesn't send chills down your spine, you haven't been paying attention. It's a blatant expression of Trump's authoritarian intentions.

That authoritarian streak many of us have been warning about? It's getting streakier. It's hard to overstate how disturbing a comment like this is, coming from the president.

The president of the US is boasting that he has an “absolute right to do what I want to do with the Justice Department,” while most of the media continue acting like this is only slightly unusual, nothing to get too concerned about.

Make no mistake, folks - when Trump says something like this, it's seriously ominous. We need to be prepared to take it to the streets.
