Trump outrage levels Tue, Jan 16, 2018
It's surprising to me how different people have different levels of astonishment and outrage concerning the goings-on of Donald Trump.  It feels like it's about once a week where some new person or group of people exclaim, "Can you believe what Trump just did/said/Tweeted?"  Yes, in fact I can.  He Tweet-taunted that North Korea guy?  I can believe that.  He bumbled out an apology for something he definitely did?  Sounds about right.  He called a bunch of countries "shitholes"?  Yep, I can believe that.  I would literally believe anything.  The man is capable of so much more (or less) than that.  I wish I could make a prediction here, but I feel like I'm not creative enough to come up with a terrible enough thing to predict.  Don't worry, he'll continue to surprise and amaze us. 

And obviously (hopefully it's obvious), this is all quite bad.  The elected leader of the free world should not do fucking horseshit like that, and it pains me to have to write that idea as if it's something that needs to be said or written and not just known from birth.  It's embarrassing to witness this, but that's what people wanted. 

Anyway, here's a very related thing I wrote about outrage fatigue. #politics
