PPO – It actually was good for the anti-Trump folks. Trump is so deluded, he thinks he can continue down the same obvious con man path that a majority of Americans are disgusted with. The sparse turnout and big anti-Trump women’s protest tomorrow will reflect the true dynamics of what lies ahead for the next 4 years. America vs. Trump and the GOP. I can tell you who will win that conflict.

good question glenn. If the past is prologue, they’ll concentrate on the trouble makers.

A sickening day…..poor turnouts for the inauguration, poor turnouts for the parade and lies from the Trump people denying both…and an inauguration address that was short, bitter, and nasty.

Review of the Trump speech at WaPo (a speech that was the inverse of his victory speech on election night): Twenty minutes into his presidency, Donald Trump, who is always claiming to have made, or to be about to make, astonishing history, had done so. Living down to expectations, he had delivered the most dreadful inaugural address in history. Kellyanne Conway, Trump’s White House counselor, had promised that the speech would be “elegant.” This is not the adjective that came to mind as he described “American carnage.” That was a phrase the likes of which has never hitherto been spoken at an inauguration. Oblivious to the moment and the setting, the always remarkable Trump proved that something dystopian can be strangely exhilarating: In what should have been a civic liturgy serving national unity and confidence, he vindicated his severest critics by serving up reheated campaign rhetoric about “rusted out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape” and an education system producing students “deprived of all knowledge.” Yes, all.

Murph – That is in sync with ALL other commentaries I’ve read in national and international papers. Trump’s angry, dark and disturbing speech has cemented him in peoples’ minds as the creature they saw in the campaign. And also telling was his vow to win in 2020…he was just being inaugurated and instead of talking aboout what a great president he’d be, he had too change the focus to the next campaign because that’s all he knows he can do! He will be destroyed in 2020…if he makes it that long in office…unless the estab Dems ordain another elite establishment Dem to get the nom.

Trump and the Repubs have no idea how their power has doomed them. The thing is, I think if Hillary won, she would have lost in 2020 just because of a growing hunger for something new. Either way, I think we would have lost the WH once out of these two elections. Maybe it’s best that Trump won this time because it will so poison the public against Repubs, Dems could have a lot of power for a lot longer period in the near future.

I pointed out that his son is in union and that the bill will likely lead to its demise. Why was the union ok for him but not for his son. He had no answer. I suggested he was selfish as I walked out the door.

Ad at my Post Trumpatic Stress Disorder Columns at Yabberz this disclaimer appears: “* Until Mr. Trump has earned the title, I will refrain from referring to his as President Trump, or The President, or Mr. President. While I respect the office, my complete lack of respect for him overshadows that historic sentiment. I am open to being surprised. I am also going to bring the same level of energy and purpose to my critique of him that opponents of President Barack H. Obama did during his 8 years as our President.”

Murph–I keep saying this, but it just blows my mind that republicans vote against the very things they say they want. For example, a living wage–mostly because of unions, but now unions are the “enemy.” They want a 40 hour work week, and overtime pay, again because of unions, but now republican voters trust their corporate bosses to give them those things. Blows my mind.

Funk – It did happen with Bush though his disasters were end-loaded, came to fruition in his last couple of years. Trump’s will be almost immediate and as so much falls apart in the lives of so many, the anger and energy will be acted on. Look at the outcry over Repubs killing the House Ethics office. It stopped that, much more of that coming in the near future.

Ad and Murph, I really hope you all are right about people finally coming to their senses. But, I’m one of those in the pessimistic camp….we had a president who brought down unemployment, brought down the deficit, brought the stock market to record highs, and did all kinds of other wonderful stuff, but people voted for the disaster that is trump, and voted for republicans in Congress, so I don’t have much hope for the American people. Plus, if the republicans dismantle social security and medicare, and never replace the ACA, it’s going to take years to get us back on track. And republicans will continue to lie about how what they’re doing is working, and people will continue to believe them, because Democrats and liberals are now the enemy.

glenn – I think it’s important to really get to the root of why Trump was elected. Why did Brexit win? Why is Marie Le Pen now ahead in polls in France? This is a global problem, stemming from the economic oppression of the many by the wealthy minority. Economics is always at the root of nationalism, desperation drives people to seek a strongman/strongwoman.
