It’s Joe Time!

Donald Trump is still fuming and refusing to accept that he’s lost the U.S. presidency, threatening lawsuits to overturn last week’s history-making election and insisting that he won’t concede the race.

Meanwhile, newspapers have moved on, their front pages—beginning (above) with page one of Delaware’s Wilmington News Journal—today heralding Democrat Joe Biden as the 46th President of the United States, with Kamala Harris as his vice-president, the first woman to ever hold such a high office in America.

I feel like I can breathe again, hope again, trust again, and not be afraid every morning for the future of my country.

“Vote for Change. Vote for Her.”

From News and Guts: “A powerful new ad by the Lincoln Project looks at Donald Trump’s treatment of women through the eyes of young girls. Sarah Lenti, executive director of the Lincoln Project wrote, ‘As a nation, we’ve been blessed to have amazing women as role models in both parties, but only one ever one president who treats our gender writ large with such disdain.’”​

What a Mess Trump Has Made of America!

Two new ads remind us of what has been lost. First, the Lincoln Project imagines what it would be like to wake up from a coma in 2020:

Second, check out this too-honest Trump parody ad from Juice Media:

“What the Hell Are You Doing Here?”

This beautiful clip from a February 2000 episode of The West Wing, “Take This Sabbath Day,” often comes to mind when I hear about Trump’s multiplying failures, scandals, and incompetent acts.

Since January 2017, the United States has had to endure presidential corruption, payoffs to porn stars, impeachment, escalating White House-coddled racism and white nationalism, a pandemic, mass unemployment, a rising recession, tear-gassing of protestors, federal forces invading our cities, and LIES, LIES, LIES, and more LIES. How many signs do we need of Trump’s unfitness for office and authoritarian bent before we save ourselves and get rid of him?

The “Wartime” President Surrenders

Trump narrates the Lincoln Project’s new attack ad, which presents a brutal timeline of his response to the coronavirus pandemic, beginning with his statement on January 22: “We have it totally under control. One person coming in from China. It’s going to be just fine.”
