WORSE THAN I THOUGHT [IS THAT POSSIBLE?]

This story in the Washington Post is very troubling.  It seems the call with Taiwan wasn't a blunder but a deliberate and carefully planned move by the hard-right types pulling Trump's strings.  Those folks are smart, knowledgeable, and genuinely dangerous.  Their view, I suspect, is that America won the Cold War and now should be the world hegemon.  If you think current US foreign policy is bad [as I do], what is coming down the pike is horrifying.
