Anyone else curious about what it was like living in the Soviet Union before it collapsed?


Or what it's like in Duterte's Philippines?

Or Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's Turkey?

Or any other totalitarian country?

Here's a look at what Trump has done and is doing to America:

Internal document shows Trump officials were told to make comments sympathetic to Kyle Rittenhouse 

 In prepping DHS officials for questions about Rittenhouse, the document suggests they say he took a gun to Kenosha "to help defend small business owners." 

 Four former Homeland Security officials, two of whom worked for Republican administrations, said it was unusual for law enforcement officials to be instructed to weigh in on a case involving a particular group or individual before investigations had concluded. 

 "It is as unprecedented as it is wrong," said Peter Boogaard, who was a spokesperson for Homeland Security during the Obama administration. 

 "What strikes me about the talking points is that they didn't call for calm among the public,” said Elizabeth Neumann, who served as DHS's assistant secretary for threat prevention and security policy in the Trump administration. “Even in the early hours after the incident, it was known private militias had self-deployed. …They seemed more interested in Rittenhouse's reputation than calling for calm and actual law and order.” 

 Neumann, who left the Trump administration in April, recently endorsed former Vice President Joe Biden for president. The Rittenhouse talking points also say, "Kyle was seen being chased and attacked by rioters before allegedly shooting three of them, killing two."
