I cannot think of a better piece to describe the debacle of Trump’s presidency than the piece written by Maureen Dowd, “Trump hits Alps, Melania frosty in Fla.,” published in the Jan. 30 Tribune. It had me simultaneously laughing and in angst that we, our beautiful nation, can have such a narcissist in power, someone that is so completely undeserving of the highest office in our country.
Ms. Dowd asks, “How did we drop so fast from class to crass? Barack Obama was always calling to our better angels. Donald Trump is paying off porn stars and denigrating struggling countries that send minorities to the U.S.”
How, indeed, did we end up in this pickle; it sad for the First Lady, and terribly sad for all of us.
Be sure to vote your power in the mid-term elections and perhaps we will restore some semblance of civility again, at least in small increments, until 2020.
