  1. Did you see the huge (Yuge!) influx of donations to the ACLU? Trump understands lawsuits. It's one of the few things he actually understands.

    1. Jono -- Yes! I was overjoyed when I heard that the ACLU had received new donations and new members. They'll need all the support they can get for the battles ahead.

      As for lawsuits, they seem to be coming at Trump from all directions. I hope he gets the message that he can't act with impunity.

  2. I've been reading rumors all day about the next edict Trump will give in the next few days: repealing the federal bans on LGBT discrimination passed by President Obama, (WaPo is reporting on this now) and possibly impeding adoption by gay couples. We'll see. I expect everything bad and nothing good from these people.

    1. Shaw -- I've seen articles about the anti-LGBTQ policies that could be coming soon. I'm nervous that Trump will try to undermine all the progress that the LGBTQ community has made.

  3. This can't last. Even members of the GOP are trying to distance themselves from this orange menace. My money says they'll move to impeach him before long. He's too difficult to control.

    1. Agi Tater -- I expect an impeachment to happen. While that would leave us with Pence as president, it would be a less awful scenario than the current situation.
