We have now officially entered the “so what” phase of American history, where the separation of powers specified in the Constitution just doesn’t seem to matter anymore. Today, by issuing an emergency declaration to build his silly and unnecessary wall, Mr. Trump is ignoring the negotiated and bi-partisan decision of our country’s legislative branch and its constitutionally-authorized power of the purse, in an imperial move that will be admired by autocrats the world over. By agreeing to support the president’s national emergency declaration, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has thrown America under the bus, adding to his already sordid legacy as a Constitution underminer. When someone tried to dissuade the president from proceeding, saying an emergency declaration would prompt serious lawsuits, McConnell said, “Who cares This is America - everybody sues everybody else.” I’d like to think being an American means something else. Standing up for the Constitution might be first on the list. What a hole we have dug. #resist #votethemout #throwthemout #mueller #muellertime #impeachtrump #impeachment #notmypresident #worstpresidentever #dumptrump #nevertrump #stoptrump #indivisible #lovetrumpshate #trumpcounter #trump_counter #trumpshutdown #impeach45
The only emergency is that the spinner-in-chief can’t keep his promise because #Mexico is not paying for his stupid wall.
It’s his world… we’re just living in it…
#Trump is learning what it’s like to “deal” with a House of Representatives that will not be licking his boots and be just rubber-stamping anything he wants… that's over! And so is the #TrumpShutdown threat. All that. For what He achieved NOTHING! Except needlessly and callously punishing the public — and — showing us all who’s really in charge in #WashingtonDC.
#Democrats now control The House and will put forth sensible legislation to benefit the people of this country. And, for the first time, will conduct REAL congressional oversight of Trump…his life will now [and deservedly so] become a virtual and perpetual deep colonoscopy…The Saudis. Abuse of power. Corruption. Ethics. Kavanaugh. Tax returns. Obstruction of justice. #Russia….you name it…we'll really start getting to the bottom of it…ALL! To save #America we must hold to account the inept, corrupt and amoral unindicted co-conspirator in the oval office: #illegitimate #failingpresident #DonaldTrump. #LoveTrumpsHate #NeverTrump #MSNBC #FOXNEWS #CNN #journalism #MoveOn #trumpprotest #NotMyPresident #politics #journalism #indivisible #makeamericagreatagain #womensmarch #crazytown #metoo #bluewave #MAGA #change

As I prep my mind to lead with love on a day of my dreams ⚡️ LCPS DEI Day! 2019 ⚡️
I am reminded that naming and acknowledging IS the risk worth taking 📣 #Repost @andrearanaej
Thinking about Jussie Smollet. Thinking about all of the black and brown queer + trans folx out here fighting for their lives, surviving, thriving (and still at risk). Thinking about the overwhelming focus on this elusive idea of “hate” that has been a constant in the US especially since the 2016 election. And thinking about what that conversation is doing for us – who and what is serves.
I rarely talk about “hate.” It’s a catch-all that means nothing. But saying homophobia or white supremacy or xenophobia or ableism or transphobia comes closer to the chest. There’s more space for us to reflect on what’s real and that’s risky. Because once you make space, then we might have to think about how we’re contributing to said “hate.” And what happens then More choice, more responsibility, more possibility. But we’ve got to take the risk.
