Since 2016, a flood of editorial cartoons, magazine covers, late-night skits, and memes have depicted Trump as being romantically involved or sexually attracted to strongmen and right-wing political leaders. Although intended to mock Trump’s strange—and noteworthy—political attraction to authoritarian leaders, these illustrations invoke old sexist and homophobic tropes. As they’ve become increasingly visible, some LGBTQ advocates and journalists have asked what message they really send. #Trump #cartoon #WeCanDoBetter

🗣💥 In this age of reality show politics, midterm candidates will face the new quirks of political debating this fall, like President Trump wannabes, the desire to engage in real-time fact-checking, and a slew of insults and nicknames.
The big picture: "Debates are much more confrontational now," said Ron Klain, a debate-prep guru for every Democratic presidential candidate back to Bill Clinton in 1992."The emphasis has shifted from persuading undecided voters to motivating your own supporters, and showing your supporters you'll fight for what you believe in." Axios got a first look at Klain's new debate survival guide, which he wrote with John Neffinger, a messaging expert and debate coach. Tap the link in bio to see their tips and tricks.

A year ago today, I posted the following post
No matter whether you feel we were in a post-racial society or not... we were starting to breed a new generation less infected because the poison of racism wasn't being promoted on a large scale anymore. ~ This two wolves parable is very timely now. As with anything in life, what you feed... grows.
An Old Cherokee Chief was teaching his grandson about life... "A fight is going on inside me", he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight, and it's between two wolves.
One is evil - he is anger, Envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, self-doubt, and ego.
The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, Serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith.
The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too." The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, " which wolf will win?" The old chief simply replied, "The one you feed." ***
