Fact: This is What Democracy Looks Like

Here are some facts to counter Trump's topsy-turvy world of "alternative" facts:

Fact: Millions of men, women, and children of all ages, races, and abilities peacefully marched on DC and around the WORLD yesterday to protest a hate-mongering, insecure, misogynistic, kleptocratic oligarch and authoritarian con-artist wholly lacking in empathy and self-awareness, and his plans to turn our 238 year-old American democracy into his latest failed casino.

Fact: These gatherings were more moving and empowering than any bullshit, isolationist, all-caps, neo-Nazi Twitter egg hashtag so-called "MOVEMENT" could ever be.

Fact: There are millions more humans who feel the same way who didn't or couldn't march yesterday.

Fact: Many of us know the Constitution inside and out, we know our rights, and we know when we are being conned and lied to.

Fact: The world is round, the planet is warming, and science is real.

Fact: Protesting a dangerous person like Donald Trump is not "throwing a tantrum," being a "snowflake," or "failing to accept the results of an election." It's holding a democratic government accountable. Any true patriot knows that, including the many combat veterans who marched yesterday.

Fact: We know the difference between fact and fiction and we know when we are being gaslighted by a sociopath and his handlers.

Fact: We aren't going anywhere and we will not sit down and be quiet. This is what democracy looks like. Trump had better get used to seeing it.
