The President talking about his daughters, "But what we have also tried to teach them is resilience, and we've tried to teach them hope, and that the only thing that is the end of the world is the end of the world."
I found that oddly comforting.
Especially right now when it certainly does feel like the end of the world.
The President also added this toward the end of his answer.
"I believe in this country. I believe in the American people. I believe that people are more good than bad."
I have to say that if a man who just watched the arrogant asshole who hounded him for years about his birth certificate get voted into office by a bunch of voters too ignorant to understand what they stand to lose, still has this kind of confidence in the American people, I guess I should as well.
But I don't.
In fact my opinion of my fellow Americans has never been lower.
Don't get me wrong, I appreciate his optimism.
I'm just not buying it.
However I do agree that overall our trajectory is toward progress and that ultimately we will get there.
In many ways Donald Trump is just an orange tinted, morbidly obese, monosyllabic bump in the road. I get that.
However my hope in that progress is probably not going to kick back in for at least another four years.
Until then my plan is to resist, to fight, and to dog this pompous POS until his last day in office.
