My country looked a narcissistic, bigoted, xenophobic, pathologically-lying sexual predator right in the eyes for a year. And then it said “Yep, that’s the man we want to lead us.”

Time does not always equal progress. We are capable of fucking this country and this world up beyond repair. I fear that we took a huge step forward toward doing so yesterday. I don’t know what else to say.
