Fighting back

What if this was Trump's plan all along? What if he and his team just said, "Let's make the first three weeks absolute chaos? Just everything that can go wrong, will? After awhile people will get so tired of it, we'll be able to do whatever we want. They won't have the will to care anymore?"

That's obviously flawed logic on my part. It would mean 1) planning ahead and 2) that they aren't already doing whatever they want with no regard for laws. I mean.... it's exhausting. It feels like there's at least three terrible things per day that this administration does.

Well, I'm not going to stop fighting. Just last night, I lay in bed with my mind swirling from the day's events. So I made some extremely controversial artwork on my phone to show how annoyed I am. Hopefully blogger won't censor these works of art:

I sent all these to my sisters last night. In response I got one "ha" and the other sister never responded. I can only assume because her mind was blown and she was speechless.

I laughed much harder than a grown woman should then went to bed.

Trump 0, me 1.

The Wall

I've been all fight these days. Push me even a little bit and I don't hold back on my distaste for how things are going with the new president.

I am trying to find more humor to balance the rage anger news, so here's something I saw today that made me laugh. Enjoy!

Week 2

I gotta hand it to the Trump presidency for teaching me some bits of history this week that I never heard about. For one thing, great news! Frederick Douglass is still alive!

"Frederick Douglass is an example of somebody who's done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice." -Trump

I assume he's just as proud of Harriet Tubman for not giving up her seat on the bus.

Also, there was a horrible incident called the Bowling Green Massacre that I can only assume we've never heard of because the liberal media chose not to cover it!

Here is a great clip from Seth Meyers summarizing some of the gaffs this week:

I've seen some Republican friends get really, really mad on FB this week. They hate the articles criticizing Trump. They want people to get over it and "be nice" again. I'm not sure what that means. I've seen some people be very, very mean but I'm not sure they're referring to that or just people not disagreeing. They even say, "stop posting - no one cares about your opinion!" (Which is definitely a nice thing to say.) I don't know. I can't stop and I won't stop. If I do stop, it means something is seriously wrong with me and you should call 911.

I don't think posting anything on FB or here or Twitter is going to change anyone's mind. I don't think that's why I share articles. I think I share them because I'm just so outraged, I can't not share them. But people can do what they want with their own FB. I don't care. I don't like to set arbitrary rules for other people to follow. That's also why I don't care if you listen to Christmas music in October or consider "glamping" camping. You do you. As long as it's not hurting anyone else.

If you're feeling absolutely overwhelmed, I thought I'd share some of my favorite tweets from this week. People are funny and laughing is better than crying.

Can't wait to see what week three holds...
