Sunday Reflection - Six Months In

The vaudeville show that’s running at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue didn’t book itself into the White House. Nearly 63 million Americans sent that burlesque comedy with headliner Donald Trump to Washington. That 66 million other voters thought otherwise is beside the point. Trump didn’t anoint himself president. Millions put him in office.

What does that tell us about the country? -- Colbert King, Washington Post.

Thursday marks six months since Category 5 shitstorm Donald "Rump" Trump took office. The appalling ignorance, prejudice, and wide- spectrum hatred that is represented in that disturbingly large segment of the voting population found its champion in Rump. What that tells us is that we can never give up, never assume the fight is over and, once this nightmare is over, never let this happen to our country again.
