There is something in me longing to no longer feel compelled to express my dismay and disgust with the current US President. I have held it in four years. Soon, it will fade. Not soon enough, but soon.
©Lindy Low Le Coq - 1/14/2020 ~ Sore Loser “…a sore loser never goes down well in the history books.” Neil Katyal We have been patient we waited our turn during four years of fractious rule until the 2020 presidential election. We stayed patient, waited hours in lines to cast our votes to end his tenure. We knew he would tantrum kick up a fuss, blame others and lie when he lost. We knew he would not go easy. We knew he pandered to the base - his amalgamation of worshipers; white supremacists, rogue evangelicals, conspiracy theorists - consumers of his lies. We were warned by his threats, his behavior, by his very nature, this man who claimed to always win would be a damn sore loser. We could foretell his messy end from daily disasters he created the past four years. It comes as no surprise his followers obeyed orders to deny, disguise and desecrate. We have been patient, we have waited for this moment when a person true to the rule of law will become our next president. The lie machine will hang around believers will stay by his side as he licks his wounded ego. He/they will not go away. We can chose to ignore him, to withhold attention that excites fantasies which will swirl within him until the day he dies.
