As hard as we worked and prayed to the Spagahteeic Space Monster that this day would never come, the first Twitter troll officially became
Fuhrer President of the United States. While most of us are still suffering from PTSD; that is, Post Trump Stress Disorder, many of us are simply counting down the days we either all die from lack of health insurance or a foreign enemy Trump tweeted “sad” at on Twitter.
The fact remains that Donald Jacka$$ Trump couldn’t get a clue if it were clue mating season and he did the clue-mating dance. Thankfully, some of the bright and qualified adults from President Obama’s cabinet are doing what they can to make sure this petty tyrant is held accountable.

You appealed to our nation’s oldest fears and divisions, and you disguised all of this prejudice as patriotism. But now that you have taken an oath to serve the American people, I want to offer some words of wisdom — and of warning. From the moment you launched your campaign nineteen months ago, you sought to divide and demonize people of every background. You called Mexicans criminals and rapists; you demeaned women and disparaged war heroes; you vowed to ban Muslims and deport 11 million undocumented immigrants; you even attacked a Gold Star family and a disabled reporter. And let us not forget the years you spent working to delegitimize President Barack Obama, our country’s first black president, with racist lies about his birthplace.
And your words had consequences. From schools to churches, your rhetoric fueled bigotry across the country and emboldened all those who wish to divide us by what we look like, where we come from, who we love, or how we pray.
Indeed, Trump’s inexplicable rise was due to his playing to the lowest common denominator and making him and his campaign the victim of a “rigged” system. Perez went even deeper:
