Things Could Be Worse...

...though right now I am struggling to see how.

My one hope is that Donald Trump is, in fact, a joke -- he knows nothing about how the US Government works, he has no ability to negotiate or to work with other people, and he has the attention span of a gnat. How much will a man this inept be able to accomplish?

That's my hope, anyway. As I'm telling all the smug, triumphant, Trump-supporters I know, yeah, let's check back in a year or two. See how we think then.

I can imagine - Something happens to Trump, and Mike Pence, who's not a complete incompetent, takes over the White House.

Mike Pence is worse than Trump. Trump is worse than the devil (if you believe in that sort of thing, which I actually don't, but you know...). Anyway...basically, what I think of Pence is that he'd turn the clock back to the 1890s for women.

I had a cheering thought today. You know all those stories about Trump yelling at and firing people, that staff at Mar-a-lago keep fat staff out of sight so they don't get fired, etc?

The staff at the White House are civil servants. I believe they're union, too. But in any case they have process rights, they can't be fired on a whim.

He's going to be SO! SAD! when he tries to yell at a doorman or fire a waiter suddenly.

Trump's already showing us the President he will be, what with his tweet about people protesting. (First Amendment? What's that?)

He's going to be a train wreck.
