Trump Opposition is Making America Great Again

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it looks like Trump is actually making America great again. Just look at the progress made since the election.  24 ways Trump is making America great again:

1. Unprecedented levels of ongoing civic engagement.

2. Millions of Americans now know who their state and federal representatives are without having to google.

3. Millions of Americans are exercising more. They’re holding signs and marching every week.

4. Alec Baldwin is great again. Everyone’s forgotten he’s kind of a jerk.

5. The Postal Service is enjoying the influx cash due to stamps purchased by millions of people for letter and postcard campaigns.

6. Likewise, the pharmaceutical industry is enjoying record growth in sales of anti-depressants.

7. Millions of Americans now know how to call their elected officials and know exactly what to say to be effective.

8. Footage of town hall meetings is now entertaining.

9. Tens of millions of people are now correctly spelling words like emoluments, narcissist, fascist, misogynist, holocaust and cognitive dissonance.

10. Everyone knows more about the rise of Hitler than they did last year.

11. Everyone knows more about legislation, branches of power and how checks and balances work.

12. Marginalized groups are experiencing a surge in white allies.

13. White people in record numbers have just learned that racism is not dead. (See #6)

14. White people in record numbers also finally understand that Obamacare IS the Affordable Care Act.

15. Stephen Colbert’s “Late Night” finally gained the elusive #1 spot in late night talk shows, and Seth Meyers is finding his footing as today’s Jon Stewart.

16. “Mike Pence” has donated millions of dollars to Planned Parenthood since Nov. 9th.

17. Melissa FREAKING McCarthy.

18. Travel ban protesters put $24 million into ACLU coffers in just 48 hours, enabling them to hire 200 more attorneys. Lawyers are now heroes.

19. As people seek veracity in their news sources, respected news outlets are happily reporting a substantial increase in subscriptions, a boon to a struggling industry vital to our democracy.

20. Live streaming court cases and congressional sessions are now as popular as the Kardashians.

21. Massive cleanup of facebook friend lists.

22. People are reading classic literature again. Sales of George Orwell’s “1984” increased by 10,000% after the inauguration. (Yes, that is true. 10,000%. 9th grade Lit teachers all over the country are now rock stars.)

23. More than ever before, Americans are aware that education is important. Like, super important.

24. Now, more than any time in history, everyone believes that anyone can be President. Seriously, anyone.”

  1. LOL, who says Cajuns have no sense of humor? ( I was married to one).

    Despite the tongue in cheek list the premise is absolutely correct. When Trump was somehow mystifyingly elected ( a perfect storm so to speak allowed this unreal event to occur) several of my friends, including my delightful and capable redheaded life partner who is usually quite optimistic and very politically active, were depressed and negative in the extreme. The redhead even spoke to me of relocating to Ecuador in her despair.
    I said then, and reiterate now, that this nation, with all its ills, is stronger than a wanna be demagogue. I felt then, and feel even more so now, that Trump would self destruct, and in a very public way. He is fulfilling my prophesy even faster than anticipated.
    We here in the USA apparently were in need of an ass kicking to get us out of the ennui within which much of our citizenry was mired. Now we see an energized electorate, citizens taking to the streets in protest of this orange headed Mussolini and his ineptitude and egomania.
    I suspect that, should he avoid impeachment ( hooray 25th amendment ,especially section 4), the mid term election will see far more participating than did the 2016 debacle.

    1. Cajuns are very humorous – every heard of Justin Wilson. It’s just that sometimes our humor is too sophisticated for non-Cajuns to understand it. 🙂

      I do agree that this country and its people are more than strong enough to endure the orange one.
