A little political advice from an ancient wise man:

"To expect bad men not to do wrong is madness, for he who expects this desires an impossibility. But to allow men to behave so to others, and to expect them not to do you any wrong, is irrational and tyrannical. Marcus Aurelius, Meditations XI.18

Pass that along to any Trumplicans you know and ask them to have someone read it to them.

2. Unfortunately, they will just say, "YES, we know all you BAD DEMs are irrational tyrants."

Whatever they read, they twist to their own means.

Day becomes night, night becomes day.

Black is always bad. White is always right. White is the only thing that matters.

Logic used upon them is like pearls to swine. It does not compute.

3. from Book 11

Neither in writing nor in reading wilt thou be able to lay down rules for others before thou shalt have first learned to obey rules thyself. Much more is this so in life.
