Our new President and his administration have spent a significant amount of time their first week in office whining and complaining about how unfair the media is and how everyone is out to get them. While it isn’t true that anyone is out to get him, it is quite true that a majority of the country is critical of him and his actions.
Their answers have been typical fascist responses such as suggesting those in the media that oppose him should be fired, or that the people in the media need to shut up and listen.
I think there is a better answer. First, acknowledge that while you won the election, you did not have a majority of the votes, nor do you have a mandate. Second, recognize that the actions you are taking are highly unpopular with a majority of the country, and even with many in your own party. Third, start telling the truth. Fourth, check your enormous ego. Fifth, change your approach. Instead of being so divisive and instead of doing everything thru executive action, with little thought and little or no input from those around you and in the house and senate, take a measured and reasonable approach.
Because we aren’t going away. You can expect to continue to see protests, hear the media saying bad things about what you’re doing, and encounter strong resistance as long as you are going against the will of the people.
