Will American Democracy Survive Trump?

Since Trump has become president, I’ve become very concerned that the United States democracy may not survive, or maybe it will.

Trump has been behaving very oddly. On one hand, some people put his odd obsession with the size of his inauguration crowd and the alleged voter fraud without evidence up to some sort of master strategy. I believe it’s no strategy, and his behavior is one of a child, and a child of diminished capacity at that.

He does not sleep more than a few hours at a stretch, if reports are to be believed, and he has kept up a sleep-deprived schedule for years, perhaps decades. Sleep deprivation is a proven cause of diminished mental ability.

Either Trump is lying about his belief in the size of his crowd at inauguration day, or he is truly delusional. It really does not matter which it is, lying or delusional, because in either case he is tearing up the country with his actions.

More to come.

Trump and Non-disclosure agreements

It is a well document thing that Trump forces many of his employees, down to the lowest levels, to sign non-disclosure agreements and also agree to never say anything negative about Trump, the Trump Organization, or the Trump family, for all time.  In essence, if you write your autobiography 50 years in the future, and mention Trump, he or his estate could come in and sue you.  Whether such a suit would be successful is beside the point because the threat of lawyers to a low-income person effectively silences them.

Now that Trump is about to become our Fearless Leader, I wonder if he will be requiring similar agreements to all his staff? Perhaps in time it will be a more general thing that all Federal Employees will have to agree to?  I wonder what the legality of any of this would be. Any thoughts?

Note, this being not legal is not a sign Trump won’t try it.
