Perhaps we will be able to exhale on December 14th when the electoral college meets and formally anoints Joe Biden as the next president.
I did see a report early this morning that Trump is beginning to speak of running in 2024. Perhaps a sign he’s wrapping his mind around the fact that he actually lost.
Who knows. But I stocked up on masks in January too, I share your cautious pessimism, and I think with respect to Trump very many of us do.
That very pessimism fills me with counterintuitive optimism.
