Trump -- and the resistance -- in pictures

For those whose main focus is politics, I imagine the last two weeks must have been exhausting.  Yet maintaining a sense of humor is more important than ever.  Mockery and ridicule have always been among our keenest weapons against the pompous and self-important.  And people have not been slow to employ them against the juiciest target the enemy has presented to us since.....well, ever, pretty much.

And speaking of mockery, it's classic how our side made the most vulgar of all Trump's aphorisms the basis for the signature headgear of the resistance, pwning not only Trump's misogyny but the crummy red hats he's been flogging to his Trumpanzees for months.

Never let the Republican Minority-Rule Regime forget that we are the majorityWe are the real America.

I recently read that radio shock jock and Trump friend, Howard Stern, said that DJT craves love and admiration and that serving as president will do tremendous harm to DJT's self-esteem. Trump's favorability numbers are well underwater; and just recently we've learned 1) that 40% of Americans want Trump impeached, and 2) a majority of Americans wants Mr. Obama back as president. These things must be corrosive to Lord Dampnut's self-image. Good.

*Lord Dampnut is an anagram of Donald Trump.

Democracy is a beautiful thing. So are correctly spelled signs.

Shaw: The more corrosive the better. We can always hope he'll resign in frustration.

Kevin: I'm sick of teabagger spelling and the effect it has on my own knack for writing.

One: It counts for plenty.

Unfortunately (t)rump's GOP has the majority in congress and the senate. Power now rests with them.

Hopefully the pressure created by the protests and the media, those that have remained mostly unbiased and rational, will result in enough republicans crossing the aisle to give (t)rump MAJOR HEARTBURN. As well as denying him much of his agenda.

Right now it really isn't looking all that hopeful.

Thanks for this, Infidel. It is good to see that there is an active resistance to Ol' Yellow Stain and the GOP that enabled him.

I do, however, hope that this wave of resistance not only continues, but it works its way into the voting booth, both in this year, and next year. The only way to really punish the GOP and Trump is to go to the voting booths and vote them out (or at least the GOP). None of this resistance will matter if we stay away from the polls. That's one of the reasons we are in the mess that we are in.

RN: Again, see the link in my comment above yours. We have power too, and we are scoring some successes against the enemy.

Marc: Of course voting is necessary, and I think that seeing the results of Republicans winning will motivate people to vote in 2018 and 2020. But remember that voter apathy was not what caused the current mess. Hillary got more votes than any candidate in history except Obama -- far more than Trump -- and our winning Senate candidates collectively got far more than theirs. The problem is the Electoral College and other flaws in the system than enable minority rule by weighting some votes more than others.

I saw this story and thought about your post. Wish I could be as clever as these people are.

"Look at the correctly spelled signs" is almost exactly what I said to my colleague as we participated in the Ann Arbor Women's March. Thanks for finding that picture, as well as sharing the one I found.

Also, Kevin, thanks for that article. I've already shared it on a Facebook page I run.
