Default Donald Trump and norms

For four years, many liberals accused then-President Trump of "smashing norms."

And, frankly, this complaint was not entirely unfounded.

But what Donald Trump did in this regard was practically nothing when compared with what his enemies have recently done.

Raiding a former president's house, after all, is surely the very epitome of smashing a norm.

The only norm being smashed here is the revelation that the former president of the United States is a common criminal who was keeping top secret materials in a storage room at his country club. Any rational person would be considerably more upset about that fact than about the DOJ finally doing the right thing and taking those documents.

So how long before Trump is arrested? This type of raid denotes a MAJOR crime, the shear number of agents in the raid proves that this must be the crime of the century. Why hasn't he been arrested? How long does it
take before he is charged with these heinous crimes against the United States?

One more January 6th and Trump will take over the world, they need to hurry up.
