Free from the nuisances of more than two weeks of hospital life, this morning I had cable news on for a mere but uninterrupted 15 minutes before I erupted in vocal, anti-Trump invectives. I was positively sputtering at the television screen as B-rolls of Trump signing ignorant, vicious, hateful, moronically nativist executive orders played on.
"We'll soon be a nation of 10 million Anne Franks," I mentioned to a friend who is caring for me in my convalescence — and my friend, who's not particularly political, quite agreed.
A 2020 presidential primary question — perhaps the first conceived — also occurred, and the question could apply to both Republican and Democratic presidential candidates: "If you could return in time and strangle baby Donald in his cradle, would you?"
(Before some right-wing sourpuss alleges nefarious implications, please note that the above question is purely historical in nature; there is no suggestion whatsoever as to any contemporary act.)
