I've also placed the numbers for my state representatives in my contacts, as they're going to be hearing from me quite a lot.

Congratulations, Trump and Republicans, you've made things bad enough that an introvert who hates crowds and talking to strangers on the phone is now joining in. Honestly, I consider it a moral imperative at this point.
Tell me about it. I'm terrified, but here.

Germany is now the leader of the free word.

Still, it's inspiring and impressive to see the depth and breadth of the protests that happened almost immediately in response to this nonsense.

....leading to hundreds of billions in overall tourism losses is quite pessimistic. Almost beyond speculation.
So... in other words, it's only a temporary ban, what is there to be concerned about?

We just need to figure out what's going on. I'm sure we'll get to the bottom of it in 120 days.

Ha, does anyone think this could actually happen that quickly? Would President Pence, a past conversion therapy supporter, be better?

If he is impeached by a GOP led congress, which I don't think will happen but you never know, I wonder if that would anger Trump voters into turning against them. They likely wouldn't turn democrat though (well, some might in certain states), I'm not sure what they'd do.
Yes, a President Pence would be better.

While I find some of his policy positions to be reprehensible, he's not a lunatic bent on turning out country into a right wing blogger's wet dream.

Remember how he likes to project?

The POTUS just uttered WW3 on Twitter. On his 8th day.

Does anyone have a guess as to what this distraction is in reference to?

He did have that phone call with Putin yesterday. Are they plotting something? He's without a doubt projecting in that tweet.

Yes. He at least knows how to govern. He sucks at it, but he knows that he can't press the nuke button if he's pitching a fit.

Is anyone following the Rogue POTUS Staff account on Twitter? That and the other "Rogue" accounts are worth keeping an eye on.

There's always that possibility that they're fake, but none of what has been written seems implausible to me - given Trump's character.

I don't need to vacation in one, I lived in one. I was 11 years old, and I remember it every day. It never leaves you, the PTSD, the anxiety, all of it. I will have the privilege of living with this until the day I die.

I'm sure your Jesus will judge you fairly when the time comes.
