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...

Thanks for the tweets! I laughed out loud and it made me feel so much better!
Big Foot, Santa Claus,... Ha!!! They're all great. Always remember that you are descended from people who fought in the American revolution. They fought for change and so must we. For our own sakes and to honor their efforts.

Thanks for sharing the video, I hadn't seen that :D

Yeah, I keep reading that Trump supporters want everyone to be nice, and give Trump a chance, and that no one was mean or racist towards Obama (biggest eye roll here), that they were perfectly civil these past 8 years now it's the liberals turn to be civil. I'm not very good at debating, so I stay out of it, but it's so aggrevating.
