So Trump said, "Take away the effing Mags! They're not here to hurt ME!" when his adoring fans

would not go through the metal detectors at the Ellipse because they didn't want their weapons taken away.

Wouldn't any normal, sane, and most of all, not-guilty-of-inciting-violence president have said, "Take away those people with weapons! They're not going to be allowed to hurt anyone here today!"???

Ya basta. Let's really divide the country.

I am starting to believe that due to the right's insistence on their way or the highway on everything from abortion to gun rights to what books can be taught in school, that it may be truly impossible to find common ground with them. Maybe it's time to physically divide the country into left and right. Yes, a gargantuan task, and how would this even be possible? I don't know.

I'm just writing this out of sheer exhaustion from the right's relentless attacks on democracy and individual freedoms, and it's early in the morning and I haven't thought it through—at all. But wouldn't it be nice if we could have our half of the country in which people were elected to office based on their qualifications and experience and intelligence and good intentions and desire to serve their community? A country where social and economic policies are based on common sense and concern for the success of everyone instead of just a few? A country where environmental and health policies are based on science? A country of inclusion, not exclusion, where people of all hues and sexual orientations are valued? A country where education seeks the truth above all things?

This is, I know, just pie-in-the-sky thinking, and I know I'm going to get a lot of "That'll never happen" responses. But damn, I'm just so tired of this, and I wish we Dems could just create our own little Denmark and let the Repubes just go and have their Taliban-esque society if that's what will finally shut them up.
