Dear Global Community

Dear Global Community,

The vast majority of us in the United States are watching what Donald Trump is saying, doing and tweeting with horror, disgust and utter disbelief.  We witnessed a 77-minute press conference, during which he lashed out at the news media for not writing nice things about him.  He doesn't want them to write or broadcast the truth.  He simply wants them to say he farts rainbows and burps puppy dogs!  His skin is so thin that he can't handle even the tiniest amount of criticism! At the time of this press conference I realized that it had been less than a month since he was inaugurated. Yes, you read that correctly.  It hadn't even been a month! As I watched the press conference, I was stunned and concerned. It was like watching someone have a psychotic break on live TV.

Global Community, we are with you and we hope you are with us.  The vast majority of us stand against the insanity that is every piece of the Trump administration. We see that he is, quite literally, mentally ill.  He even made up a fake attack in Sweden! We are doing everything in our power to fight for our nation, which will ultimately help you.  We are protesting, petitioning, writing, attending town hall meetings, and calling our Representatives and Senators. The problem is our Republican Representatives and Senators are not listening to us.  They are more interested in pleasing their big money campaign donors than they are in doing the job to which he or she was elected.

Today at the Conservative Political Action Committee (CPAC) conference, Trump continued his assault on the truth.  He once again mentioned a fake attack in Sweden, blamed all Muslims for the terror attacks that ISIS sympathizers alone are responsible for, and attacked the news media, calling them "fake news" (his favorite new term), simply because outlets like CNN, The New York Times, The Washington Post, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC are telling the truth about him.  The 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects many things we hold dear in this country.  Adopted in 1791, it states: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people to peaceably assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."  Mr. Trump is trying to deny both free speech and the freedom of the press to report what is really happening here. This is where we need YOUR help.  Please report the truth of what is going on here in your news. Please tell your citizens that we are fighting back against the destructive, hateful administration that has taken over our government!  We need your help to spread the truth about Donald Trump and his administration, including Steve Bannon who proudly and openly said at the CPAC convention that each of Trump's cabinet secretaries were picked with the goal of causing the destruction of the department.  These people have no qualifications for the post they have been appointed.  They have, in some cases, fought against the agency of which they now lead.

Our nation, a nation that I love, is becoming unrecognizable.  We are fighting back against Trump's "Travel Ban" which everyone knows is a poorly cloaked and horrifying ban on Muslims entering the United States.  We are fighting back against his despicable deportation squads, who Trump claims are deporting only "bad dudes," are taking single mothers and the Dreamers, those who were brought to America (yes, illegally) as children and through no fault of their own.  We are fighting back against the lies, the bullshit and the quite possibly illegal garbage that comes out of the White House each day.  We are seeing the lengths to which he and others around him will go to in order to try and suppress truthful information and we are fighting back!  We are rising up in every state and shouting that we are not going to roll over and take this.  We are rising up to fight for our country, our freedoms, and we are standing together.  Global Community, please know that as we fight for our country, we are fighting for you too.  #Resist
