Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Trump, like all good megalomaniacs, believes he's doing God's work because he has defined himself as God.  Pence, on the other hand, believes he is enforcing the wishes of an actual Sky Daddy, and he has a support mob of millions who believe the same.

Who is worse is a difficult problem. Pence will do more harm to the US body politic while Trump will do more harm to the Republican Party. But Trump is far more likely to get us all blown up. How are we to do risk assessment on that situation?

I think that climate change denial and the dismantling of science, education, and the rule of law are the biggest threats we face, and Pence is the greater problem here.  He is smoother and driven by what he considers a divine mandate.
