There have been a series of revelations of just how psychotic the White House has become.
The Trump Kowtow
force others to humiliate and debase themselves before him. Kellyanne Conway (aka: Ilsa, She Wolf of the SS) has openly advised White House employees that their first priority is to display "deference and humility" before the Dear Leader with the realization that he is a superior creation with no peer on Earth.
Reince Priebus and Tony the Mooch fight it out in public for his amusement. Trump was reportedly angered that Reince didn't put up a more entertaining fight. This reminds me of the story of the Louisiana teachers who forced their students to fight each other.
Then there was the motive of Manson's murder spree in 1969 - to provoke race riots that would reduced society to chaos allowing Manson to rise up as the savior. Trump's call for police to routinely rough up suspects, innocent and guilty alike, will create the chaos that will allow cancers like Trump and Steve Bannon to metastasize.
