Thank you for doing these links posts. It must be very disheartening at the moment, though very useful because people need to know what's going on. Trump's very good at distracting the media by saying something outrageous on Twitter so no one will notice the far worse things he's doing.

Yeah, I try to minimize linking to stuff about Trump at all - I figure people have already seen the news of whatever new thing he's announced or executive order he's signed. Also I am a calmer person when I pay him, specifically, as little attention as possible.

And you're welcome, although yeah, I might have to think about taking breaks from doing them, because they're pretty depressing.

Thank you for that first link especially. Am so angry, and not allowed to say anything on twitter really, that it gets exhausting.

*hugs* Perhaps a private, unidentifiable Twitter for venting? There are apps that let you switch back and forth between accounts pretty easily, I'm told.
