New York Post: Why does a connection between Jared the Child Molesting Subway Guy and Crazy Donald not surprise me?
The Washington Post: Kudos to Crazy Donald for also favoring hot men, however crooked
The New York Times: Trump appoints doctor he likes with no management experience to head the Department of Veterans Affairs -- one of the biggest bureaucracies in the world -- after things don't work out giving a Fox News commentator the job
Deadline: "Roseanne" made a remarkable return to prime time, with huge ratings and seamlessly jumping ahead two decades. I'd been given reason to believe that it tilted too far in making its Trump-supporting protagonist look like the sane one, but my source was completely off-base. And by the second episode, it was back to business as usual as the day-to-day struggles of the lovable Landfordites returned to center stage
P.S. Another concern raised was that it was "normalizing" the acceptance of Trump, who is anything but normal. I have always agreed with activist Mike Signorile that if you voted for Trump, you are essentially dead to me. But what if it's a close family member, perhaps an elderly one you love? Oddly enough, Tim Murphy -- perhaps the most "woke" person I know -- wrote this interesting comment on Facebook that allowed me to feel a little less horrible about not writing off my flesh and blood (lol). While I do fully believe racism and xenophobia played a huge role in the election, I have to believe -- as Tim does -- that some underinformed types voted for him thinking it was for the right reasons, however wrong they were.

It's one thing to have voted for trump but then seeing the err of your ways and regretting the choice. But if you still support him today, you are dead to me and your kinship to me is effectively over. You are entitled to make a mistake based on election meddling, but once he showed who he was, trump should never get a pass.ReplyDelete
