Lock Hope Up! Lock Hope Up! or The Triumph of the Shrill

I was so worried about how we’d heal each other after this election, how we would make up for the casual racism, anti-Semitism, xenophobia, and misogyny fueled by a deplorable, intemperate vulgarian unable to distinguish fact – including scientific fact – from the hate-filled fantasies of his fevered little mind.

My hope that this was possible was rooted in the steady, if sometimes slow, progress of the past. But Trump has finally convinced me of one thing: at least a slim majority of us isn’t so great after all. His basket overfloweth.
