The United States of America is currently being run by a madman. This was never more evident than with today’s “press conference” which was basically an hour and 20 minutes of one dude with narcissistic personality disorder verbally jerking himself off over his lying and self-delusion fetish for the world to watch. The sad thing is that this will probably cement his followers’ blind devotion to him (“he’s telling it like it is!”), and deflect attention from some of the scary shit going on now (the Russia bullshit, and you might want to watch this Samantha Bee diatribe about the terrifying and generally immoral things our GOP-run Congress has been rocketing past a helpless nation in the name of a conservative agenda and $$$$).
Shit is crazy, as they say. What could be crazier? I’m scared. Are you? But you can’t lose heart. And you need a breather. You need some beauty. Watch this absolutely necessary and life-affirming vid from the Ad Council about the diversity of love. Have tissues handy. Let it sink in that we’re going to be ok as long as we stand up, be heard, and remember that bravery and kindness is of the utmost importantance at this time in history. And then dry your tears, get back up, and #resist in any way you can.
