San Diego gets it. Lots of us are unhappy with the incoming administration.
There are community gatherings. There are rallies. There are protest marches. There are teach-ins. There are press conferences. There is art. There are even dance parties.
People from all walks of life find are finding ways to express their displeasure with the incoming administration. Check out the calendar below for events over the next ten days or so. Events related to the inauguration include the Trump/NOPE graphic.
Americans don’t think much of the President-elect’s transition performance, according to a Gallup poll released this week. It’s historically bad with 51% of those surveyed disapproving, as opposed to 12% (Obama/2009), 25% (Bush/2001) and Clinton (18%/1993).
Meanwhile, signs of the Trumpacolypse are all around. An unvetted document alleging Russian influence is, we were told via Twitter, not true because the Russians say so. A Republican Congress is rushing headlong into repealing the Affordable Care Act without a hint of a consensus of what could replace it. House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz says he may probe a federal ethics official for daring to question President-elect Donald Trump’s plan to distance himself from his business empire.
It’s quickly become apparent that the best course for opposing Trump is grassroots activism. Networks and coalitions are springing up faster than I can keep track of them. (But I’m working on it and will report on them soon.)
