From Melissa McEwan at Shakesville.
This is not normal.
It is not normal for a president to use his social media account to tweet chilling opinions about Constitutionally-protected rights.
It is not normal for a president to suggest it is reasonable to have one's citizenship revoked or to be jailed for doing something legaljust because he finds it distasteful.
It is not normal to imply that a "year in jail" could be remotely equivalent to being stripped of one’s very citizenship, to be permanently exiled from one's home.
None of this is normal. It is profoundly troubling. And we cannot become inured to such egregious democratic transgressions. This cannot be normalized.
Actually, this is monstrous. Just about everything he does is monstrous. His Cabinet picks, in fact all of his choices are monstrous. He is not a normal human being. He's a monster. If you think that's too strong, then I think you need to take another look, a closer look, because there is no other word that describes our next president!

It's difficult to know exactly how one person living in the hinterlands can show his/her displeasure with the orange-headed monster soon to take up residence in the White House.
But there is something we can do with relative ease. There is now an App for iPhones and Androids that lists all of the businesses that supported Trump's candidacy for prezident.
Go to your phone's app store and enter "Trump Boycott" in the search box. Hopefully, you will find it possible to boycott a number of these businesses and if you do, let them know what you're doing and why. There's power in numbers and the more people involved, the more effective the boycott will be.
Our current president and his family spent Thanksgiving handing out turkey dinners to retired war veterans, all the while making friendly with these former warriors.
Our prezident-elect had a huge dinner set up in his plush, over-the-top resort, Mar-A-Lago, in Palm Beach, with a 24-course dinner, enough food for a small nation.
150 Secret Service personnel were needed to guard those in attendance.
The cost to the U.S. taxpayer was $7 million!
Thanks to Crooks & Liars for this.
