    Cedric Alexander holds some very impressive credentials. Among other things, he is a psychologist, therapist, sociologist, author, consultant, former TSA security director, former Rochester police chief, former police chief of DeKalb County, Georgia and current Chief Operating Officer for DeKalb County. He details how Trump repeatedly fails to "take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed," as Article II of the Constitution demands of the President. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, an agency overseen by the President, declares "ethnic slurs and other verbal or physical workplace conduct based on nationality" to be illegal. So why do we allow Trump to continue spewing his nasty, hateful, bigoted, racist slurs and continue attacking Mexicans, Muslims, immigrants and duly elected Congresswomen? "Lock him up! Lock him up!"

    Trump's racist 'go back' message is un-American, demoralizing and unlawful

    Our racist, bigoted, xenophobic, white nationalist President spews lies, insults and hateful comments on a daily basis. He never thinks he says anything wrong or hateful, though. Of course not. He worships himself. In the delusion-filled land of Trumpworld, he's perfect and could never possibly be less than perfect. That's why he has never apologized for anything. Meanwhile, Trump's aides and allies have a full-time job trying to undo the damage and chaos caused by his childish, nasty, hateful outbursts. Four Washington Post writers give details:

    This headline tells us all we need to know about where the Republicans' loyalty rests:

    GOP leaders defend Trump's racist attack on lawmakers

    Democrats, meanwhile, see Trump's hateful, divisive, racist rhetoric as similar to that of four-term Alabama Governor George Wallace, a staunch segregationist who opposed the Civil Rights Act. Wallace unsuccessfully ran for President in 1964, 1968, 1972 and 1976. Trump ran for President in 2016 and won. Wallace would be proud.

    Since racist, divisive, immigrant-hating, fear-mongering white nationalist Donald Trump has been President, the number of hate groups in the United States has risen dramatically. White supremacy was the issue that divided our nation during the Civil War and Pete Buttigieg warns it could do so again.

    Peter Beinart, a professor of journalism and political science and a contributing editor of The Atlantic, wrote an insightful essay on the Republicans' hypocrisy and double standards:

    By Republican standards, almost nothing is racist
    When Democrats are accused of anti-Semitism, Republicans understand that
    coded language can be hurtful. But Trump’s racist comments get a pass.
