This is truly sad to watch.


Under Donald Trump, our country has been reduced to a laughingstock, a curiosity, and a pitiable mess. All of that is on display in this video from The New York Times. If you don’t feel like watching the whole thing, at the very least skip ahead to 6:05 to see just how much sympathy the world has for us — trapped as we are on Asshole Island.



This is America. That used to mean something. No longer.

Our only chance to recapture our status and earn back the respect of the world is to elect Joe Biden. There is simply no other option.

Make it so.
