Life is hell, at some point we all just have to get used to it.
Alysha Speer, Sharden

Charles M. Blow
Trump’s America is not America: not today’s or tomorrow’s, but yesterday’s. Trump’s America is brutal, perverse, regressive, insular and afraid. There is no hope in it; there is no light in it. It is a vast expanse of darkness and desolation. And that is a vision of America that most of the people in this country cannot and will not abide.
Charles M. Blow
