January 20, 2017

On January 20, 2017 the United States of America will have a new President.  The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court will administer the Oath of Office to the most divisive, ill prepared, ignorant, bombastic, sexist, racist, narcissistic, pig headed man, who has multiple allegations of sexual assault against him, ever to run for the office.  On January 20, 2017 we will witness the beginning of the end of America as we know it.  Will I watch the inauguration?  No. I don't get a kick out of seeing democracy die, nor do relish the idea of seeing this completely ignorant person, who goes on a Twitter rampage if someone give a restaurant in one of his ridiculously over priced hotels a bad review, be sworn in to sit in the Oval Office and attempt to lead this country.  I will stand with Congressman John Lewis and boycott the inauguration of this illegitimate president.

Trump doesn't get it.  He doesn't understand that his word have weight.  He doesn't understand that he could start a war because he can't get off Twitter.  He is the adult equivalent of a toddler having a temper tantrum multiple times a day.  The people he is nominating to his cabinet further proves he does not get it.  The majority have no business being in the positions to which they have been offered them.  All you have to do is look at his nominee for Secretary of State. Rex Tillerson has extensive ties to Russia.  He has absolutely no experience in diplomacy let alone foreign policy.  All it takes is one Republican to vote no and his nomination will not make it out of committee. Trump's pick for Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, has such an extensive track record of racism in his past that when he was trying to be confirmed as a federal judge, he was denied the judgeship.  He's so bad that, in a historic move, a few of his fellow Senators testified against him. But, hey, let's put him in charge of enforcing the laws of the land! Nothing could go wrong there!  Trump's pick for Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos, has absolutely no qualifications for the post. She's never even taken out a student loan! She has nothing but disdain for public schools.  Christ, she said guns should be in some schools to protect students from Grizzly Bears! This is not a person playing with a full deck. She is rich, entitled, and has no business running the Department of Education.

The Republicans are telling us that we need to "stop complaining" and give Trump a chance.  How can we when each day we are finding out more about Trump's ties to Russia?  We are finding out more about how Russia screwed with our election. Russia bought, paid for and installed the son of a bitch! Well, Mr. Trump, we have 3,000,000 votes that say we reject this! This is not how things are done in this country.  We do not allow other countries to influence our elections.  Trump has made this country the laughing stock of the world.  I love my country and I love the Constitution so much that I carry a pocket sized version in my handbag at all times. I will fight in any legal way I can to stop the insanity that is going on.

On January 20, 2017 the United States of America will have a 45th President.  He is a man who will never be my President.  I will not acknowledge a man who brags about sexually assaulting women as the President of my country. I will not acknowledge a man who has normalized rape culture in America. I will never acknowledge a man who believes he should be able to take whatever he wants from a woman and we are supposed to say thank you and take it with a smile.  I will never acknowledge a man who does everything possible to deny the 1st Amendment, even going so far as to "consider removing the White House Press Corp from the White House."  I will never acknowledge this pathetic excuse for a man, this clown, this hack, this Russian "asset" (he even called himself an asset at his ridiculous press conference!), this buffoon as President of the United States of America!
