The other day I joked with a buddy of mine that I almost feel as if Trump is in a race to prove that his administration is going to be just as big of joke as his critics all knew it was going to be. Practically every day I wake up thinking, “What stupid thing has Trump already done.” In fact, I’ve actually gotten into the habit of having my coffee before I even look at my phone in the mornings to give myself some time to wake up before I inundate myself with the day’s national embarrassment(s) brought to us by Donald J. Trump.
Even though we’re not two weeks into this circus, it already feels like it’s been years.
One of the worst parts to all of this is that it’s not like I can hope for an impeachment because Mike Pence is just as bad, if not worse. He’s blindly defended Trump’s disgusting behavior at every turn, plus he’s a legitimate religious fanatic.
My main hope is that Democrats take back a good chunk of control in Congress in 2018. That way we can block everything possible for his last two years, vote him out in 2020, then do our best to pretend like this was all just a really bad dream.
Though I’m not sure if anyone’s described Trump’s time in office better than Stephen Colbert did on Monday when he compared his first few days in office to a really bad experience on a roller coaster during a vacation you instantly regretted taking.
“Every day you just get right back on that roller coaster and you start throwing up,” Colbert quipped.
And that’s basically how I’ve felt every day. Like the entire country is all on this horrific roller coaster where the rational people being forced to tolerate it are in a constant struggle not to throw up at the horrors this evil, corrupt, and incompetent administration is putting us all through.
The main thing I’ve been telling folks is to keep fighting. Do not let any of this become normal. We have to use the awfulness of Trump as motivation every single day to come together, resist, and do everything we can to save this country from the biggest national security threat we’ve seen in decades.
Just know that you’re not alone. There are tens of millions of people — the majority of the country — who oppose Trump and everything that he stands for. Whether you’re part of the #54Percent who rejected him on election day, or the growing number of Americans standing against him now, we represent the true values and spirit of the United States — not Donald Trump or the mindless sheep foolish enough to support him.
