And the populism will be led by billionaires

Our new billionaire President in his inaugural address, and with his signature egotism and predictable absence of any unifying humility - -

- - called for an America-first populism directed by him from the top down.

It will implemented by right-wing GOP legislators in complete thrall to the special-interest right-wing billionaire donor class and activated by his fellow hand-picked right-wing Goldman Sachs/ExxonMobil/other corporate millionaires and billionaires in his Cabinet.

Top down, one-party populism proclaimed and managed by billionaires and their legislative lieutenants is a complete contradiction, a cause for concern at the broader, 50-state grassroots and a failure waiting to unfold.
