Agelbert NOTE: This pretty much reflects how decent peole in the USA feel now. There are looking for hope but see ZERO evidence for it. The mood is dark.

40. Gotta love the mindset we've gotten into, regarding trump.

He's a complete psycho and scofflaw, far-and-away the worst "president" we've ever had.....

And we the opposition now view him as invincible.

Wonderful world we're living in, these days.....

41. What else can we think?

Please, I'm actually begging you, give me one small piece of hope that something will stick to this piece of garbage some day.

That there is one decent Republican out there who will not enable him.

That there is any chance of our side ever holding him accountable for anything.

It is despair, because we went through a mild version of this with W and nothing happened. No one was held accountable for anything.

It is happening again, but this time it is far worse. The despair comes from wondering how much worse the next one will be.

42. I can't give you any comfort or hope.

By and large, I think we're fu cked. The worst aspect of trump's reign is discovering just how many malignantly stupid people there are in this country. I always knew there were some of them; I never dreamed there were enough of them to send this country down the toilet, with the help of a timid and inept Democratic leadership. Sorry for the lack of good cheer.

43. It also helps to know I'm not alone

in my feelings.

If our leadership wasn't so timid, I'd feel a lot more hopeful.

45. This too shall pass. Hang in there.

Something will bring trump down, probably something unexpected and initially underestimated. I'm still hoping for a massive, coast-to-coast, multiple-day victory party, once we're rid of him. I have a good bottle of scotch set aside for the occasion---maybe that's what constitutes hope, these days.....
