"the wacko far left is running the dem party"
Ah yes, the ghostly Deep State!
It's 2017 and enter Donald Trump, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Steve Bannon, Breitpart, Erik Jones and THE DEEP STATE! ~ a useful boogyman that allows Trump to merge several disparate political targets, real, exaggerated and imagined, into a single villain he can use to rally his supporters.
It's true that there is a certain faction of the U.S. government, usually at the Pentagon, who are always on guard against unrealistic demands coming from a civilian Commander-in-Chief AND who aren't adverse to using their powerful influence to secretly (outside of public view) sway certain rogue directives away from destructive consequences. However, Trump and Company have expanded and weaponized this subliminal system of checks and balances to include every branch of government he needs to minimize, including the CIA/Intel, AND the constitutional Freedom of the Press into "they're out to get me." The purpose, of course, is to maximize his own power as theirs get weaker.
