Was It Me, Or Was Yesterday Crazy?



I’ve been extra busy at work this week, just as the news is getting really crazy. Honestly, yesterday was the first day in a long time where I felt like I couldn’t keep up with the onslaught of new revelations.

As a friend on Twitter put it, it feels like it is really happening. The downfall, the coming of the end. Of something.

To put the day in context, I thought I’d put all the major headlines of the day in chronological order here. These headlines are courtesy of PoliticalWire, which aggregates political news daily. I should also say that during the Trump administration, PoliticalWire will often post 10-12 big news stories, and on insane days, they might hit 20-25. So when you see a day like yesterday, you start to get a sense of just how crazy it got.

I’ve marked the BIG stories with a 💥 and Whoa! stories with a 💥💥.

  1. …and then there was trump’s rally in Minneapolis-my city. Protesters were-mostly-peaceful and awesome. Baby trump was there. Late last night I watched a video of trump’s “speech”, and it was chilling. His usual on steroids. He is so good at creating a narrative that is so false-but his fans just gobble it down, and now will go forth convinced of their righteousness. Some of the attendees were from out of state-groupies-but most were Minnesotans,and we have some hard work ahead of us to stay blue here.

    Question: Is the group right behind trump reading cue cards? Their eyes are all focused on something, and they nod, clap, and smile in unison. I could swear I’ve seen some of the same people at multiple rallies.

    So, we persist.

    • You’re right, the headlines didn’t include his rally nor the Democratic candidates’ LGBTQ townhall event on TV last night. I’ve read that the Trump campaign picks the people behind him carefully and they are encouraged to be exuberant in their love for the president. Glad to hear about the protests, though.

  2. You’re right, it’s crazy and it’ll get worse.
