Gut-wrenching.

I have been thinking about this since I read it last night. I didn’t retweet it because I needed to sit for a moment with the recognition that we are treating the children of this nation as if their lives are expendable, and teaching them that the lives of others don’t matter.

The problem, however, is that when the abuser is the President, telling him what he wants to hear enables the abuse of the entire country and empowers his psychosis. It’s so foul.

This is what I’ve been thinking about, among other things, since the interview dropped: the staff is giving him graphs that show him what he wants to see. They’ve been trained by his psychosis to do that to avoid his abuse. Don’t upset the abusive husband or he’ll beat you.

This is true. His means of dealing with male questioners is to simply say their names over and over again until they stop (watch for it), or to say “fake news.” With women, and women of color in particular, it is about insulting them into submission.

This quote at the end of her book stopped me in my tracks: “If he can in any way profit off your death, he will facilitate it and then he’ll ignore the fact that you died.”

That he has been allowed to stay in office, let alone for this long, let alone in this crisis, is just mind-boggling.

This man is trash. Just absolute utter garbage. A pile of flaming filthy garbage. Get him out.

Also, when my kids were younger, I got them the book on MLK and we read it every night. My daughter was so little that she couldn't pronounce Luther, so every night I got asked to read the book on Martin Lumma King. It was a favorite when she was 4.

If you're looking for an age approp book on anti-racism that explains it in kid language, we are reading this book right now, a little every night (thanks again !). My kids are 8 and 7. They are really invested and ask a lot of questions.

Yup. The sooner we wrap our heads around it, the better will be at finding novel solutions to work with one another to survive this. Three moms are doing it right here, right now, daily, creatively and equitably.

No, it’s showing a retweet with comments but when I click through there’s less than attributed.

Twitter question: how is it possible that I could be quote tweeted with a comment but not be able to see it?

Almost everyone I know who has recovered has had some kind of cardiac issue since. This doesn't surprise me. It's not just about the deaths, which are horrifying enough. It's also about enduring disabilities.
