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 communities, and your humanity to contribute whatever you can, even if it is just awareness of the truth.

This is actually happening. Here’s everything you need to know about Trump’s inauguration.

Trump is going to be President tomorrow. Now is a great time to revisit The New Inquiry’s Waking Up in Trump’s America series.

This horrible excuse for a human being is going to be our President. Read up on this tragic murder at the border, and see what Trump’s “Build the Wall” looks like in action.

This country is going to burn. Writer Mikki Halpin, of the action now newsletter, encourages people to request inauguration tickets and then protest or skip the event so that it looks empty, because, in case you didn’t know, PEOTUS is desperate for admiration and popularity.

Don’t give in to despair. Please, don’t give in to despair. The boycott of the inauguration continues to grow.

There is no escape. We have to face this. The GOP has taken control of the country and they didn’t do this by getting more votes: an introduction to gerrymandering.
