This Week in Trumplandia


Welcome to This Week in Trumplandia. Check in with us every Thursday for a weekly roundup of the most pertinent content on our country, which is currently spiraling down a crappy toilet drain. You owe it to yourself, your community, and your humanity to contribute whatever you can, even if it is just awareness of the truth.

45’s administration published a database with the personal information of abuse victims.

An activist probing Ivanka’s shoe-making factories in China is arrested.

Add this to the list of fascist regulations 45 would like to make in America.

In news that doesn’t mean a lot but is better than most things, support for 45’s impeachment continues to rise.


Here’s something that’s not a link, just a plea from me: Please don’t pay attention to 45’s latest typo on Twitter. Laughing at him doesn’t accomplish anything. Making fun of him doesn’t change anything. This isn’t resistance. If you want to laugh, find something funny to laugh at.
