Amy Siskind: A guide to what the next president will have to unwind. Experts in authoritarianism advise keeping a list of things changing, subtly, around you, so you'll remember. Days after the 2016 presidential election, I started a list.

Amazing project by @Amy_Siskind to catalogue the norms broken by this administration. It's an important reminder of how much our nation has changed for the worse--and why we can't have four more years of this.

I've been keeping track too. This guy is an apocalypse for anyone who has the slightest idea of how government functions.

Which is why he is still president and 40 percent of the population thinks he is just swell, and the majority of the ones who don't like him just don't like his personality.

The wonks know that he is the gravest destroyer of this country's foundation.

From that Twitter page reaction:

George Takei

"Ben Sasse, John Cornyn, even Mitch McConnell appear to be distancing themselves from Trump. But we're not going to let them. They're gonna know what it's like to have to carry something to term, even when it threatens their very existence."

George with the rim shot.

Someone early on was quoted on how norms are the first to go when authoritarianism starts it reign.

It's almost been a year since their last report. What gives? The entirety of 2020 was too daunting of a task?

I stopped by an Ashram this weekend. I saw various adherents in deep meditation. A man with a shaved head who looked like a monk was almost silently whispering a mantra to himself over and over again. "Two more weeks. Two more weeks. Two more weeks..."
