The Arsonists

The common feature of most Trump appointees is that their assignment seems to be to burn down the agencies for which they are responsible. The latest?  The new US Ambassador to the European Union seems to want the EU to go the way of the Soviet Union.  The influence of Steve Bannon over all of this, including authorship of the various executive orders, is apparent.

So, I am now using "Arsonist" as shorthand for Trump appointees.  They want to burn American institutions down. They want to burn the international order down,  I was asked on the radio about whether a shakeup might be a good thing.  Only if you hate international peace and prosperity.  So, if you see me refer to Arsonist online, this is what I mean.
