Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Yes, America. You are reflected in Donald Trump’s cabinet nominations. You are, when it comes down to it, a fast food nation, a coal-burning nation, an oil-swilling nation, a climate change–denying nation, a pray away the gay nation, a bomb ‘em to Kingdom Come nation; you’re a Goldman Sachs runs the show anyway nation, an only losers earn minimum wage nation, a pull yourself up by the bootstraps nation where you need a credit card to afford the boots, a kick out the immigrants nation, a kick out the Muslims nation even if they ain’t immigrants; you’re a tell lies if it helps you get what you want nation, a no such thing as facts nation, an every man for himself nation, a too bad you didn’t make the right decisions when you were young nation, an every life is precious nation except if you were born black. You’re a white nation, and a Christian nation, America, even though there’s not much Christianity in your actions. You’re a talk the talk nation, but you don’t even pretend to walk the walk.
The Trump administration: America’s tarnished mirror.
