An excellent story by someone who knew it first hand. Thank you for sharing it. We have so many people who can’t read well enough to understand this or are so focused on years of anti-Obama propaganda that wouldn’t try. We have so many people who have no grasp of critical thinking that they are completely at the mercy of their emotions. In a broken political system and culture that is defined by superstition (we call it religion but it isn’t spiritual just authoritarian politics by another name) and the justification of bigotry, hatred, and murder, we have allowed a very bad mistake to be made. Yet, people say, give him a chance that’s how democracy works. We all know better. This is totally based on lies. How can democracy work with no legitimacy? Too soon, my friends say. Wait for him to fail. I’m afraid it is already too late. Many people know it but it is too hard for us. We were raised to accept this when it happened because it never would. To overcome the manipulation is too big a challenge because we have become so small.
