The unfunniness of anti-Trump memes
Watching the airport chaos unfold…
Bill: After the chaos affecting certain people at certain US airports and beyond, I was looking for a smart anti-Trump meme. But I gave up.
Bill: Googling "anti-Trump memes" throws up an unmanageable number. Hundreds. And they're not funny. Because they are almost all so true. The only usable subtle one I found was about education.
George: And this is only his first week in office. Fortunately, many journalists have become a de facto opposition party and reporting on and questioning his policies.
Bill: Keep looking for ways to counter this insanity at the top. Marches. Social media. Legal suits. It’s going to be a drawn-out battle.
This floundering administration with its malevolent incompetent leader could push its critics, which include more than half the public, Democrats, disaffected Republicans and journalists, to firm up their strategies.
