The arrogance and delusion of Donald Trump knows no bounds. It’s horrifying enough that his “understanding” of our southern border seems to come not from his agency heads nor briefings by experts but instead from the movie Sicario, whose totally fictional elements, such as border agents finding Muslim prayer flags, made their way into a Trump speech. But then Trump declared that the entire American Intelligence community has no idea what is going on, no idea what the real risks are to our nation, but Trump does because he’s so much smarter than any of them, declaring that they need to go back to school! Describing Trump as a pathological narcissist is neither hysterical nor melodramatic. It’s just a sad fact.

The extreme cold should be on its way out today as we slowly return to normal temperatures, and even some warm days next week.
Stay warm and keep resisting…
