DemDaily: Transition, Tweets & Tolerance
January 6, 2017Much of our country's electorate (or at least 48%) have been burning with a desire to channel their energy, frustration and voices into a unified action since November 8th - and will be among the hundreds of thousands expected to descend upon Washington, DC during Inauguration week.
While some Dems and activists prepare for the Women's March on Washington and a series of alternative or Blue Inaugural events, President Obama and team are juggling the challenges of a "peaceful transition of power" to the incoming President on January 20th.
Since the election, President-elect Trump's tweets, public baiting, racist remarks, and diplomatic blunders have fueled the fire of fear as we approach inauguration - and tested the diplomatic skills of both Democratic and Republican senior officials.In his last major televised interview in office Thursday, Vice President and Scrapper-In-Chief Joe Biden was unable to hold back any longer.
Biden on Trump's most recent tweeting indiscretion: "Grow up, Donald. Grow up. Time to be an adult. You're President."
In her final public speech yesterday, Michelle Obama was more subtle: "Our glorious diversity - our diversities of faiths, colors and creeds - that is not a threat to who we are, it makes us who we are."
The First Lady closed on a high note, "Lead by example with hope, never fear. And know that I will be with you - rooting for you and working to support you for the rest of my life."
