Only four years

Last night I watched the MSNBC special of the White House photographer highlighting the Obama years. I cried a few times remembering his passion, humanity, humility, intelligence and care for people hurting. The images of him with families of fallen soldiers, Sandy Hook parents, and so many Americans that faced crisis after crisis esrmecmy soul. Not once can I remember a second of Trump showing any concern for anyone.
This morning I scrolled through dozens of DU post headings, and thought how fucking far we have descended into a shit hole society led by a shit hole faced tyrant in just 4 years. Imagine the descent of another 4 years.
Thank you Mr Barrack Obama and your family for the grace and love for us while staying in our house. Those images may one day inspire a broken nation to overthrow GOP rule of hate to take us back to what so many took for granted while you LEAD.

It was a happy--and heartbreaking--remembrance that made me tear up many times. Empathy. A crucial quality that trump has never had.

I loved it.

God sent Trump to fix all that Obama satanic hate, greed, anti Jesus, crap he brought to our house. There is not a single image ever photographed of Trump sharing love with his kids. Oh, right, I forgot the ones of Ivanka planted up on his mushroom, with Christian lust all over his face. THAT was some love there. Hey Qanon freaks, any thoughts?
I feel you Bayard. It felt like losing the greatest love of your life, knowing you may have taken her for granted and seeing her completely happy, beautiful, and successful while you are now married to a crack Head whore, that cheats on you to fulfill her habit. Biden, Harris, Senate, House and the end of McConnell and Graham can help recover. Please God, ya need to repair your rep. Time for one of those miracles. Satan is kicking your butt.
