No, President-elect, We Do Not Have To Play Nice

Excellent post from Gronda Morin

“We the people” are hearing from the republican President-elect Donald Trump that we need to come together to support his plans to lift up our country. His pleading is for us to allow him enough time to prove that he will make good on his promises.

He and his surrogates are asking for the public to grant them some kumbaya time with a straight face, even after he and his campaign operatives were the catalyst for the most contentious, divisive and mean spirited election process that I have witnessed in my life time.

I would take the president-elect’s pleadings seriously, if I observed actions, signaling that he truly has plans to represent all Americans and not just his Alt-right, White Supremacists’  ideology- bound followers.

Here are four signs that I am looking for that would give me some pause, but I am not holding my breath in the meantime.

Thank You To The Cast Of Hamilton For Standing Up To VP-Elect Michael Pence

Thoughts on the cast of Hamilton from Gronda Morin

Anyone who believes that we are living in normal times, is denying the reality that the majority of Americans voted for the democrat Hillary Clinton to become Madam President. Yes, she will win the popular vote by about 2 million ballots.

Thank you, Mr. Trump, as tickets to this play which are sold out for months in advance are almost impossible to come by.

Watch As Donald Trump And His Cohorts Indulge In “Gas Lighting”

Donald Trump, Gaslighter in Chief

Gronda Morin

Don’t believe what have seen with your own eyes and have heard with your own ears. There are people who will be working in the White House that will want the public to doubt their own instincts, their own sense of moral outrage, and their own internal compass of decency.

US election cartoons The republican President-elect Donald Trump is saying the right words like he will be president of all the peoples but he is acting counter his own statements by surrounding himself with the same folks who ran his campaign with all its ugliness. These developments belie the president- elect’s positive and forward leaning words.

This is how Susan Dominus in her 9/27/16 NY Times article, describes the gas lighting phenomenon:

“When I watch Donald Trump, I sometimes feel like Ingrid Bergman–not European and glamorous, but unnerved, as though I’m being gaslit, as in the famous plot of her old classic movie “Gaslight.” The lights are flickering, but her character’s husband, who…
