Did anyone else notice the end of the Oval Office Addres?

He ended it with “. . . so help me God! Thank you and good night.”

Haven’t most [real] presidents ended Oval Office speeches to the nation with an anodyne, “God bless America”?

I don’t remember whether President Obama ever neglected to use that ending (because it’s not that important to me). Wouldn’t the religious troglodytes have jumped all over President Obama had he failed to end a speech with “GbA”?

So far, I’ve not seen any mention of this in the media; even if Faux Noise blowhards adverted to this, I doubt they’d mention it publicly.

I believe that a narcissist could easily say, “. . . so help *me* God,” and wouldn’t even consider ending with “GbA,” so this is no surprise to me on this level.

Amazing the thoroughgoing hypocrisy of the Religious Wrong these days! Sigh.

With regard to the "Wall," perhaps Democrats could emphasize

"He kept saying, 'Mexico will pay for the wall," but now he wants to RAISE YOUR TAXES in order to pay for it. Well, WE REFUSE TO RAISE YOUR TAXES for it!! We're simply demanding that since he's such a 'great deal-maker' he pony up on his guarantee that Mexico foot the bill for a wall that's not needed. In the meantime, we will continue to REFUSE TO RAISE YOU TAXES for an unneeded, ill-advised, and ridiculous boondoggle!"

My sincerest condolences

to all who mourn. Grief is not a mental illness, but it can certainly feel like one — perhaps because every new grief brings up every old grief. Lord knows, this week has occasioned monstrous griefs for our Nation. Or at least for those of us who have not yet lost our souls and/or our decency.
