Remember to remember: the difference between an imperfect friend and a deadly enemy.

I will not move on, get over it, forget, do a "Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" erasure of the past. This is vital for future elections. Common sense.

New Rule, The Lesser of Two Evils:

After Trump's first 100 days, there's enough evidence "to ask those liberals who couldn't bring themselves to vote for Hillary because she was the lesser of two evils -- quite a bit lesser, wouldn't you say, now? And no, this isn't about reliving the last election, or my great love for Hillary (which never was), it's about winning the next election. And that depends on learning the difference between an imperfect friend and a deadly enemy. Jill Stein said of her electoral rivals, Hillary and Trump, 'To me, one is death by gunshot wound, and the other is death by strangulation.' My dear friend Cornel West said during the campaign that 'I think Trump will be a neofascist catastrophe and Clinton will be a neoliberal disaster.' I don't know what a leoliberal disaster even means, but whatever it is, isn't it better than a fascist one? Have you people lost your fucking minds?

"Before the election, Edward Snowden tweeted, '2016: a choice between Donald Trump and Goldman Sachs.' Yeah, so what happened? The anti-Wall St. crowd that were too pure to vote for Hillary ended up putting in Goldman Sachs people as Trump's top political strategist, the head of his economic council, and our treasury secretary. ... The only people from Goldman Sachs he hasn't hired are Goldman and Sachs. ... If Hillary was president, we wouldn't be turning the clock back on the one issue for which there is no more time: climate change. ... On so many issues, she wouldn't be complaining, 'It's complicated! Who knew?' SHE KNEW. She loves complicated. She's a reader."

The View's Meghan McCain says about Cambridge Analytica: Obama did it too!

On his use of social media during the 2012 campaign: "So, the double standard I don't understand right now is, it happened under Obama and it was lauded by the media as being genius. And now the Trump campaign did it and it's a Cambridge Analytica scandal."

The other panelists did not seem to manage to convince her that Obama did not steal data and spread misinformation, etc. I feel the need to step outside and scream for a few hours.

The conversation is at the beginning of the show:

The Salvation Army Is Opening Cheap Grocery Stores in America's Food Deserts


"America's latest grocery disruptor? It's the Salvation Army. Baltimore today got the country's inaugural location of DMG (after the nonprofit's motto, 'Doing the Most Good.') Called the first-ever national nonprofit grocery chain, the goal is to bring good food to low-income residents in the country's food deserts. ... Baltimore's DMG features an on-site butcher, and premade meals and salads via partnership with the Maryland Food Bank. It's even got a house brand called Best Yet alongside other national brands."
