I’m a political junkie, and I’m usually glued to the events of presidential inauguration day. Not this year. I can’t abide seeing Trump and his smarmy coterie of hangers-on, nor hearing from them. I plan on no TV or radio all weekend.
I’m heartbroken yet again that the long-hoped for inauguration of the first woman president has been shattered, and by this vain, incompetent narcissist to boot. I may not see a woman president in my lifetime. I am seeing a return of the autocratic white male dominating positions of power. Welcome back to the Wolves of Wall Street, and the serial gropers of women.
I stand with John Lewis, and am grateful for his speaking out. Not a legitimate president, this Trump who scorns the core ideals of democracy and decency. Not my president, ever.
