Today is the winter solstice. At least it is where I live. That means that today has the fewest hours of daylight of the year. It’s the shortest day of the year, although it’s still approximately 24 hours long, like every other day.
It’s appropriate that today is the winter solstice because these are very dark days for the United States and for the world. And today my patience is also at its darkest. The lunacy of the Trump presidency has reached infinity and beyond and I believe it’s time for someone to intervene before it’s too late.
Do you hear that Robert Mueller. Before it’s too late!
Trump, the spoiled little brat, is willing to shut down the federal government if he doesn’t get funding for his stupid border wall. He’s unilaterally withdrawing troops from Syria and Afghanistan, against the advice and counsel of our military and diplomatic leaders. He’s continuing his inhumane treatment of asylum-seeking families at the border. He’s kowtowing to the autocratic leaders of Russia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and China. He’s rolling back our environmental protections. His administrative staff team and Cabinet members are either resigning, being fired, or leaving in disgrace and he’s replacing them with unqualified Fox News personalities.
He constantly lies. He distracts. He divides, he enables the worst characteristics of human nature. He has no scruples, no morals. He’s out for himself.
It’s time for an intervention, America.
