Rolling Stone’s Matt Taibbi had a few interesting observations to make of our now infamous authoritarian state political leaders, in his article “The Fury and Failure of Donald Trump.” Taibbi attended the Paul Ryan celebration in Elkhorn Wisconsin. 

Let’s start with Scott Walker:

“All 16 of the non-Trump entrants were dunces, religious zealots, wimps or tyrants, all equally out of touch with voters. Scott Walker was a lipless sadist who in centuries past would have worn a leather jerkin and thrown dogs off the castle walls for recreation.”

Or this appraisal of Rep. Robin Vos…

He’s a mean-spirited little ball of energy who leaped onto the stage reminding the crowd that he wanted to eliminate the office of the treasurer to SAVE YOU MONEY! Vos went on to brag about having wiped out tenure for University of Wisconsin professors.”

And don’t forget the crowd of proud Deplorables:

“When the event was done, as the crowd of other seething Deplorables filed past them, they and a few others remained in their chairs, staring fatalistically at the empty stage.

The scene couldn’t have been more poignant. Duped for a generation by a party that kowtowed to the wealthy while offering scraps to voters, then egged on to a doomed rebellion by a third-rate con man who wilted under pressure and was finally incinerated in a fireball of his own stupidity, people like this found themselves, in the end, represented by literally no one.”
