Last spring and into the summer, I read some articles and somewhat predicted a Trump victory in November. His disgusting, ugly, and unethical campaign appealed to people who felt they were "victims" of hard times. I am not discounting the hard times many of my fellow citizens have fallen upon; however using propaganda to appeal to disenchanted folks is not the answer. The propaganda was riddled with generalizations and lies. Very uneducated....
One thing Trump understands is that negative press is press. It's attention. Even if that attention is negative and more often than not, false, he knows how to con people. Keith Olbermann, a journalist who I've enjoyed all the way back during his ESPN days, has a great series on GQ, The Resistance. He has clearly outlined while the new Predator in Chief is scary and unfit.

I spent a lot of time over the last two weeks watching President Obama's "Farewell Tour." The grace and class he and Michelle (and their daughters) showed brought tears to my eyes. Barack Obama is the most "human" President that I've experienced in my lifetime. There is a sincerity and genuine care he puts in to everything. Watching Ellen DeGeneres salute The Obama's was beyond touching.
While everybody in our country has the right to their opinion and point of view, I will always believe that The Obama's faced racism every step of the way. Yet they charged ahead and did what they felt was right for ALL Americans. They are amazing role models. Many of Obama's critics, and even Obama himself claim that his Presidency "fell short." Show me a President who has NOT fallen short? And there's a simple reason for this - partisan politics dominate. Members of Senate and the House are often more concerned with re-election than they are with doing what is right. Regardless of what others think, I, too, have the right to my opinion.... Barack Obama is the best President of my life and historians, in the years ahead, will agree that he will go down as one of our best ever. I appreciate the hope he has instilled in many. And remember, as Obama stated Friday, "this is not a period; it is a comma in our nation's history." #stillMYpresident #thankyouObamas
Keep the resistance going. Thank you to the Nasty Women for their amazing work yesterday and for all of the others who support them. We are not done. This is just the beginning.
