The Anniversary of the US Presidency and his adversaries- By Yvonne Sam

The Anniversary of the Presidency and his adversaries—What has Madness got to do with it?

By Yvonne Sam

A year later and America is caught up in “Fire and Fury” and sanity. Reasons why now in office he must not stay were all there before Election Day.

Yes, a year later after President Trump has been elected via the American electorate call, we are still caught up in trying to make sense of it all. Folks are pinching themselves, to the point where they can feel, thereby being convinced that it is all so real.

It is so easy to disparage others when we are in a privileged position of wealth and power. In such positions, we can lose touch with our shared fragility as human beings. We can forget that the labor of millions of invisible human beings sustains our lives. Immersed in our comforts and luxuries, we can believe we belong to an invincible special breed.

This Is How Ignorant You Have To Be To Call Haiti a ‘shithole’

President Trump’s defenders don’t know anything about Haiti’s history — or the USA’s

Jonathan M. Katz | The Washington Post
