He is a Deplorable Human Being

This is what my iPhone’s newsfeed looked like this morning.22C47E72-7CEB-4503-B644-0F85E94D6501We have a man in the Oval Office who doesn’t have an iota of empathy, cares only about how things affect him, and who only knows how to use force and intimidation to get his way.

Last night, from within a secure bunker deep inside the White House, Donald Trump threatened demonstrators outside the White House with “vicious dogs” and “ominous weapons.” And he warned that the Secret Service was prepared to use them against the demonstrators.

Attorney General Bill Barr said he is sending federal “riot” teams to Washington, D.C. and Miami in an attempt to quell violent clashes between protesters and police. Federal riot teams? Really?

And, of course most Republican lawmakers are either standing squarely behind Trump, are echoing his calls to “dominate” the protesters, or are silently fiddling away while our country burns.

Is this what has become of my country? It breaks my heart.
