YOUR DAILY DYSTOPIA | 2017.02.23

Republican Senator Tom Cotton faced an angry crowd during a town hall in Arkansas, but one little boy and his question made the crowd cheer. Cotton took a question from 7-year old Toby Smith.

The little boy took the microphone and said, “I’m Toby. Donald Trump makes Mexicans not important to people who are in Arkansas who like Mexicans, like me, my grandma. And he is deleting all the parks and PBS Kids just to make a wall … and he shouldn’t do that.”

No word yet on when the ICE agents of popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп will be coming to deport Toby.

Did you hear about ‘United to Protect Democracy?’ This is a group of lawyers who helped President Obama craft and hold to rules of ethical conduct that they believe strongly popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп is breaking and will break, due to the continued politicization of the government. The group has raised $1.5 million, hired five staffers and incorporated as both a 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4), allowing them to operate as a nonprofit but participate in some forms of political advocacy as well.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer, responding to the group’s formation, said, “This administration has raised the level of ethics training and oversight to a new level compared to the practices of the previous administration.”

When the room burst into spontaneous laughter at Spicer’s remarks, two people were hospitalized for being unable to breathe. The hysterical laughter continued for 12 hours after Sean Spicer left in a huff.

Speaking of pasty-faced guys, did you hear what Michael Moore said on Twitter a few days ago? For those who don’t know, Twitter is a favorite passtime for older middle-aged men to rant about politics (the author of YOUR DAILY DYSTOPIA fits that bill), and Moore is no exception.

Moore tweeted on February 19, 2017, “A few minutes ago, I launched RESISTANCE CALENDAR! A one-stop site for all anti-Trump actions EVERY DAY nationwide: http://resistancecalendar.org.” But, there’s already a Facebook group with about 65,000 likes called “Daily Action” that does exactly that. And a few other organizations already promoting work to do locally.

Sort of reminds me of Bill Maher taking credit for Milo Yiannopoulos downfall; even though it was mostly the work of other people (including Larry Wilmore on his own show), Maher definitely wants the credit.

No word yet on what the name of the movie Moore is planning to make about his time as the self-appointed leader of the resistance against popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп will be called yet.

Speaking of popular vote loser and aspiring dictator Donald Трамп, he made a promise to the American people in August, 2016, to work hard for their interests. Трамп said, “I’m going to be working for you. I’m not going to have time to go play golf.”

The Washington Post recently spent some time breaking down how the nation’s most unpopular President has spent his time in office in his first month. So far, Трамп has spent 4 hours delivering News Conferences, 6 hours signing bills and Executive Orders, and 6 hours at Intelligence briefings.

But, get this, he’s spent 13 hours on Twitter. And 25 hours golfing! In the first month!

There’s no word yet on how much time he spent actually reading any of the executive orders or other documents put in front of him. So, quick, someone put an order in front of him that says, “I resign!” stat and get him to sign it before he notices.

Tell Трамп it’s a 2 for 1 coupon for golfing for anyone who uses Twitter a lot, I’m sure he’ll go for it!

If you went to a town hall, or helped organize people to bring them to one, your efforts count! Look at the news today. You are making a difference. And if you don’t know what I’m talking about, well, there’s no time like the present to learn and get involved!

Have you done your part today? If not, take a moment to decide what to do, how you can help, and pitch in! Maybe pitching in for you means telling me I’m dumb, go for it! Whatever it is, make your time count!
