On this July 3...
let's not stop resisting the malignant narcissist who daily defiles our country with his juvenile antics and vulgar insults to our American values and ideals.
And let's remind ourselves of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson's wise words about freedom of the press:
"Were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers, or newspapers without a government, I should not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter."
Charles M. Blow:
"We must remind ourselves that Trump's very presence in the White House defiles it and the institution of the presidency. Rather than rising to the honor of the office, Trump has lowered the office with his whiny, fragile, vindictive pettiness."
"Republicans have bound themselves up with Trump. His fate is their fate. They have surrendered any moral authority to which they once laid claim -- rightly or not. If Trump goes down, they all do."
"We must always remember that although individual Americans made the choice to vote affirmatively for him or actively withhold their support for his opponent, those decisions were influenced, in ways we cannot calculate, by Russian interference in our election, designed to privilege Trump."
"Trump is an abomination and a cancer on the country, and none of us can rest until he no longer holds the reins of power."
