When the Loser Wins

And now, Ben Carson is appointed to HUD.

Each passing hour brings word of yet another reason to question our national sanity. It’s becoming ever more clear that nothing good is forthcoming from the new administration. With each announced appointee Trump continues to erase even the smallest glimmer of hope that something beneficial might be coming our way. In a darkly comedic way, every office is to be held by those who oppose the foundational purposes of those offices. Republicans are revealing that their greater investment is in holding power, with little regard for the consequences of how they choose to wield that power. For the first time in our history millions of American citizens are genuinely terrified that the new president and a complicit Congress will follow through on their “promises”. And Republicans see in this a reason to gleefully celebrate their party’s approaching stranglehold on the devices of governance. Truly, when the loser wins, the nation loses.

2. Throughout the campaign ...

... every time Trump demeaned a demographic, demonstrated his ignorance about gov't, made fun of a disabled guy, he was saying "DON'T VOTE FOR ME!"

Now that he's stuck with the job he never wanted in the first place, he's doing everything possible to say "I TOLD YOU NOT TO VOTE FOR ME!"
