The best thing I can say about this week is: at least its Friday
Theres never a dull week under the Trump presidency. In addition to pushing a healthcare plan that would leave 22 million without coverage, the president has spent his mornings this last week attacking a cable news host in a bratty, sexist tirade.
We already knew Donald Trump was a raving misogynist, but having a leader in uncertain times who whines about petty grievances instead of running the country does not exactly inspire confidence. The best thing I can say about this week is: at least its Friday.
Glass Half Full
This incredible organization in Chicago is training young leaders to make a difference in their communities and beyond they could use some donations, so pony up!
What Im RTing
Who Im reading
Michelle Goldberg at Slate on Trumps misogyny; David Fahrenthold on the fake Time covers hanging in Trump properties across the country and this moving piece by clinic director Calla Hales who was raped by an anti- abortion activist.
What Im writing
Why the female reporters response to Trumps harassing comments felt all-too familiar.
What Im watching
Sarah Huckabee Sanders trying to make fools of us all. No link necessary.
How outraged I am
Legislators in Missouri are considering legislation that would make it legal for employers and landlords to discriminate against women who use birth control, so Im at a full 10. Someone send help, or Xanax.
How Im making it through this week
Watching a lizard pop bubbles. (Whatever it takes, you guys.)
