Well, we’ve certainly got our work cut out for us. We’ve got a President-elect who is nothing short of a complete scumbag. Fortunately, more and more progressives are realizing that this is the case, and a grassroots call to action has gone viral, inspiring many to find new effective ways to resist Trump and his agenda.
And we are going to miss the Obamas. Just listen to what they did on Christmas, according to the always swift-to-report Colin Taylor: First Lady Michelle Obama spent the afternoon volunteering at the NORAD Tracks Santa, taking calls from excited children. Nice! And as for Barack?
Well, as he does every year, he visited the Marine Corps Base mess hall in Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii, to show his appreciation for our fighting men and women who stand ever vigilant while the nation celebrates holidays. Speaking to the men and women at their posts on Christmas Day, the President gave a short but powerful speech, sharing his gratitude for their sacrifices:
“I just want all of you to know that it has been the privilege of my life to serve as your commander in chief. I know Michelle feels the same way when it comes to being able to stand alongside our military families and our veterans. As tough as it is to be deployed, the people here in America, back home, understand that every single day you serve, you’re fighting for our freedom. Our commitment to standing by you every step of the way — that won’t stop.”
And as for Trump? Yeah, he tweeted out a picture of himself raising a tiny fist then returned to his mansion in Florida. He obviously doesn’t have the interests of the American people in mind…but there are ways to organize against him, as this viral article lays out perfectly.
