Today is Inauguration Day. I’m filled with such anger, worry, and sadness that I refuse to even think about Twittler today and so instead today I’m only posting positive things. Rest assured that tomorrow I’ll resume my posting about his many downfalls, but today I can’t even.
So here’s some things that make me smile:
The Overwatch community continues to surprise and delight me. This tribute to a fallen player is both moving and a terrific way to pay tribute to their lost friend.

Could Trump and Putin’s bromance be any more obvious? I mean get a room guys. It’s so sweet how Putie sticks up for his little Trumpkin!
Seriously though…I never thought I’d see the day when a Russian dictator would be standing up for the PEOTUS.

Yet another case of a gay man being attacked in Texas.
This is just one of the many reasons my husband and I are trying to get out of Texas as soon as possible.

Anybody really surprised that Trump isn’t going to divest his holdings to avoid conflicts of interest? No? Didn’t think so.

Seems like the MSM is having a bit of a tiff over this. Half seem to want to suck up to Trump and scold BuzzFeed for reporting on a document that’s been knocking around DC for at least a month, and the other half supports BuzzFeed.
Listen up reporters! Get your shit together. Don’t start infighting. Trump will furnish you with ample opportunities over the coming months and years to report on his many problems, conflicts, and mistakes. Do not give in to him and start attacking each other.

Trump continues to be at war with journalists, in his first press conference in 167 days he refused to take questions from CNN saying “Not you. Your organization is terrible,” Trump said. “I’m not going to give you a question, you are fake news.” Later he called BuzzFeed a “failing pile of garbage” and said the publication would “suffer the consequences” for publishing the unconfirmed report.
I have a feeling that the freedom of the press is about to get put on restriction.

So Trump can basically Tweet anything he want’s and get away with it.
