An under-appreciated problem with the Trump presidency is how he and his staff continuously normalize disaster. Because we witness new scandals, gaffes, coverups, hypocrisy, misdirection, incompetence, atrocity, cronyism, ignorance, racism, xenophobia, treason, embarrassment, lies, dysfunction, power grabs, war escalations, environmental assaults, misogyny and more on a DAILY basis, the magnitude of each is diminished in our consciousness by the simple virtue that we have become saturated. Because of this, we at zenruption will be publishing a daily curation of the events that have been reported, from various sources, including leaks within the White House, so that we can fully experience the level of disaster our executive branch has become and the implications it has on all of us.
