I dunno. Anyone who can get every institution in America to turn on him en masse can't be all bad, can he?

The sad, frightening thought about all those institutions might be: What were they all waiting for?

What were they waiting for? Simple -- they were waiting for him to go too far. I.e., fucking with the Army. The countless people he'd bullied and could not strike back because they were intimidated were no longer held in check, and they went for his now defenseless throat. Sic temper sons of bitches.
