Well, the nightmare we knew was coming is finally here. Donald Trump is in charge of America. In a matter of hours he proved just how belligerent his administration will be towards workers, women, scientists, and immigrants alike.
Yes this nightmare is now reality, and no amount of drinking will change that. I know, I tried.
Always eager to make matters worse, Senate Democrats have unabashedly voted to confirm Trump’s insane cabinet picks. Elizabeth Warren voted for Ben Carson for HUD secretary. Schumer and Feinstein voted for every one of them they could.
Some have wondered how establishment Dems could possibly go along with this. Isn’t it obvious? They were never afraid of Trump getting elected, just like they aren’t afraid to confirm Trump’s cabinet picks. They pose no threat to their Wallstreet backers, no threat to the status quo of capital. They were afraid of Bernie, he was the one they had to stop.
