A Trump Christmas, with ill will to all

What has he done to us?

During the past two weeks of impeachment, my stocking has been stuffed with good cheer from President Trump’s supporters. They describe me variously as a woman, unprintable epithets for a gay person, a Democrat, a “f---ing clown” and an “intel mouthpiece,” a hack and a fraud, a “scumbag” and a “s---head,” a hater who is insufficiently grateful to “white people” and who performs certain unmentionable sexual acts.

But this year I had a ready rejoinder. Thanks to Trump (or so he informs us), “everybody is saying Merry Christmas again” — even a non-Christian like me. So I replied to each abusive impeachment email I received over the past two weeks with two words: Merry Christmas.

The replies show that, in the Trump era, even gestures of peace and goodwill have become sources of bitterness and insult.

3. These Russian trolls

seem to pick up the worst words first, don't they? Paid agitators. Probably speak broken English, much like the former escort posing as "first lady". So tell yourself "I really don't care. Do U?" and ignore them.
