In 2016, I was shocked when Trump won the presidency. However, I was cautiously optimistic and decided to give him a chance.
That sentiment did not last long. The day after his inauguration, President Trump visited CIA Headquarters and stood in front of the Memorial Wall to give a speech. He immediately went off script and bragged about his landslide victory, the number of Time magazine covers featuring his face, the largest Inaugural crowd ever, etc. Shortly thereafter, Kellyanne Conway introduced us to “alternative facts,” Steve Bannon told the media to “keep its mouth shut” and Stephen Miller told us “The powers of the president will not be questioned,” It was apparent we were in for a wild and crazy four years.
Now it is 2020. Despite all the legal theatrics, Joe Biden will be our next president. At least give him the benefit of a couple of weeks!
