First off, I am avoiding all cable news at this point. I just can’t deal with another ‘journalist’ or ‘experts panel’ telling me what all this means and trying to pretend that this is normal and it’s all going to be okay. It’s not now or ever going to be okay. I woke up with an even greater sense of dread this morning than yesterday, especially after reading about how the backlash against immigrants and Muslims (and even an adopted Korean child!) has begun. Whether or not Trump is able to pull it together and behave as a human being is doubtful, but almost irrelevant at this point.
He has awakened a sickening, bigoted, hateful force that is going to be felt in our communities for a long time.
