Is Trump a necessary evil?

Trump has lived a life of avoidance of duty — not just avoidance of military service and avoidance of taxes, but also the avoidance of duty to others, whether on the other side of a transaction or the other side of the street. Many of those who have served in the Trump Administration have cited a duty to country, rather than a duty to Trump. They know him too well.

But it is those who have avoided duty that have mattered most. The Republicans in Congress are Trump’s underwriters, the co-signatories of the Trump presidency.

They are bystanders underscoring the maxim:

‘The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.’

They have failed in their duty.
