'Donald Trump slipped into the Oval Office through a wormhole of confusion about the American identity.We weren’t winning wars anymore. They just went on and on and on, with inexplicable and deceptive aims and so many lives and limbs and trillions lost.We couldn’t believe in our institutions, with breaches of trust and displays of ineptitude.

We want a president who understands that sexual and physical abuse are wrong. We don’t want a president who bends over backward to give the benefit of the doubt to neo-Nazis, wife beaters, pedophiles and sexual predators — or who is a sexual predator himself. We don’t want a president who thinks #me is more important than #metoo.'
