Trump, no doubt, will always be #1 until he dies... and maybe for a few years after that. Let's include his inner circle-- the instigators and enablers-- rotating around him as part of "Trump"... The family, Bannon, Stephen Miller.
#2- Trump's outer circle includes congressional enablers and enforcers like Tommy Tuberville and Ted Cruz in the Senate and Kevin McCarthy, Andy Biggs, Devin Nunes, and Gym Jordan-- not to mention the Gang Greene, roughly Marjorie Traitor Greene (Q-GA), Lauren Boebert (Q-CO), Madison Cawthorn (Nazi-NC), Matt Gaetz (FL), Paul Gosar (AZ), Mo Brooks (AL), Louie Gohmert (TX), Mary Miller (Q-IL), Ronny Jackson (TX), Scott Perry (PA), Jody Hice (GA), Alex Mooney (WV), Clay Higgins (LA), Matt Rosendale (MT), Claudia Tenney (NY), Beth Vn Duyne (TX)... Enablers not in Congress include a collection of sociopaths and grifters like the My Pillow Guy (brain-damager former crack addict Mike Lindell), Rudy Giuliani, the crackpot lawyers waiting for disbarment proceedings like Sidney Powell and Lin Wood...
#3- The media whores, from the superstars of fascism like Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Jesse Watters, Jeanine Piro and Sean Hannity to bottom feeders like Joe Concha, Maria Bartiromo, Brian Kilmeade, Tammy Bruce, Tomi Lahren, Dan Bongino, Steve Doocy, Pete Hegseth, Ben Shapiro, Molly Hemingway, Ben Domenech, Greg Kelly, Seb Gorka, Mark Levin, Larry Elder, Dennis Prager, Robert Jeffress... Oh, yeah and Rupert Murdoch.
#4 The Republican Wing of the Democratic Party: Joe Manchin, Kyrsten Sinema, Josh Gottheimer, Jim Costa, Henry Cuellar, Kurt Schrader, Ed Case. Lou Correa, Abigail Spanberger, Stephanie Murphy, Jared Golden... you know-- all the ones who took bribes to derail the Democratic agenda.
#5 The Billionaires Who Shoudn't Exist: Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Mark Zuckerberg, the Mercer family, Miriam Adelson, Larry Ellison, the Kochs, Peter Thiel... actually why not just say all billionaires shouldn't exit, including half-billionaires and quarter billionaires.
Writing for The Intercept this morning, Jon Schwarz made a list and included Joe Biden (at #2!). Seems a little harsh?Not really. He wrote that "Biden would be on this list no matter what, because he is president of the United States. All presidents are ex officio members of any group of terrible Americans. But Biden has also worked hard to earn his place here. 'With Donald Trump out of the White House,' Biden predicted back in 2019, 'you will see an epiphany occur among many of my Republican friends.' Biden appears to still believe this, even as his Republicans friends openly plot to kill and eat him."
Probably Biden’s worst action has been to help establish a kind of global vaccine apartheid, under which (according to a recent estimate) rich countries have vaccinated 65 percent of their population against Covid-19, while poor countries have only been able to vaccinate 3 percent.
This has the twin virtues of being both mind-numbingly cruel and unbelievably stupid. The omicron variant is the fruit of leaving huge swaths of humanity unvaccinated and available to host mutations. Omicron may turn out, knock on wood, to be less deadly than previous variants. But until most everyone on the planet has lasting immunity to Covid-19, we will continue to be rolling the dice, over and over and over again.
On the other hand, this policy does have some enormous upsides, such as [INAUDIBLE].
He also included poor old Justice Stephen Breyer. "Remember when Ruth Bader Ginsberg was diagnosed with both colon cancer and pancreatic cancer, but refused to retire during Barack Obama’s presidency? What a girl boss! Then she died while Trump was president, cementing control of the Supreme Court to the ultra-right for the next 30 years. Stephen Breyer has seen this example right in front of him and apparently decided to emulate it. Breyer, now 83 years old, is one of the three remaining justices appointed by a Democratic president. At any moment, a Democratic senator could die, plausibly handing control of the chamber to the GOP and eliminating any opportunity for Biden to replace Breyer. But Breyer is going to take his time, planning to retire sometime between now and 2056. It’s all very exciting, as long as your primary concern is Stephen Breyer’s ego and not whether American democracy is obliterated."
