I am beyond despair.

The potus is throwing paper towel rolls into the crowd. And they are cheering him. No words for the sadness of this.

1. We should all get free paper towels from the government to use

to clean up all of our vomit and tears since the election. Soon we will need buckets and mops since paper towels won't be enough to last for over 3 more years.

2. Everything will be alright...

I had to step away for a bit yesterday.

If you have woods near your home, a walk through them will make you feel better.

6. I stepped away a bit yesterday to play with our pig dog...

...wrestling for her favorite knotted rainbow rope toy.

She hangs on even when I've lifted her off the ground and I'm swinging her around. Then she lets go so I can throw it and she can retrieve it for another round.

I like the rope game better than her dog-spit-soaked-tennis-ball game. I'll be napping when she'll shove her dog-spit-soaked-tennis-ball-of-the-day in my face. She is a destroyer of flat tennis balls discarded by the high school, but first she has to chase them.

It's possible I should hunt pigs with her, pigs being the most dangerous animal in the California forests, but I'm mostly vegetarian.

7. Wonderful! I love my dog, but he doesn't play.

I wish he did...but he has other great qualities and he is a good friend.

8. We have four dogs, all good friends. Family.

They'll all comfort me when I'm feeling down, but it's the wild eyed, one blue eye one brown, pig dog who is the most enthusiastic believer in play therapy.

3. I know.

Throwing stuff from a table somebody set up.

The people were selected.

There are no words.

4. It's all staged. What emerges over the next few weeks is key.

We desperately need Brave reporters to go into the countryside and show what is really happening.

Sixteen dead my ass.

5. I am hoping the cheering is a calculated move to praise Trump's ego in order to get needed aid.

Everyone with a working brain stem knows Trump is nicer to those who offer him praise no matter how much of a boor he is by nature.

So, maybe - just maybe - (I hope) they are cheering for survival.

As sad and tragic as that sounds.

To be reduced to cheering for an insensitive oaf for crumbs tossed their way.

But the thought of anyone cheering him for real is worse in some ways.

9. I can only assume the cheering is from the staff

he brought on the plane w/ him. There weren't more than 50 people in that room. No native would have cheered him chucking a roll of paper towels. His staff thinks we are all fools.
