Just because he couldn't coherently implement an unAmerican, racist policy he promised over a year ago doesn't mean he's not a steaming pile for whom millions of Americans ought to be ashamed of voting! 'Give him a chance', man. Never mind how often he promised to be the best ever, but couldn't even manage to inform the personell who would implement this awful policy how they ought to do it doesn't make him a hack with no talent for governing and his supporters the pack of suckers they've been rightly labeled.
We'll just gloss over the part where an outright fascist media website runner (excuse me, seven whole years in the navy as a low officer) is now at the highest level of our national security apparatus, replacing actual professional soldiers and intelligence officers.
We are *so much safer!* Except from, you know, *all* of the biggest attacks against which this poorly implemented ban wouldn't have protected us. The worst part is, aside from the fact of this ban and the reality of Trump and fascists in the White House, is that none of this is a surprise.
Oh, and capax, in your ridiculous forest analogy for American politics, the fires kill or drive out most of the life before renewal begins. So...part nonsense, part accurate!

"Gen. John F. Kelly, the secretary of homeland security, had dialed in from a Coast Guard plane as he headed back to Washington from Miami. Along with other top officials, he needed guidance from the White House, which had not asked his department for a legal review of the order.
Halfway into the briefing, someone on the call looked up at a television in his office. “The president is signing the executive order that we’re discussing,” the official said, stunned."
I'm pretty sure this post references the January 21st Women's March in Washington.
I did, along with my wife, my mother, my daughter, my brother, his wife, and several friends from high school. My son marched in NYC.
Also, my son went to the immigration ban protest at JFK, and I have friends from High School who protested at Seattle Tacoma, and Albany International airports.
