Day 89, “All The President’s Men”

Daily Digest

“We count the days to ensure they’re numbered!”

We are nearing the end of Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office.

Around now, we had anticipated writing about Donald Trump’s about-face, one that would fit perfectly into the media-produced narrative of this presidency. A couple headlines regaling the American people with some heroic or presidential accomplishment might be accompanied by a bevy of broadcast pundits gushing over Mr. Trump’s “unexpected turn,” how FINALLY, America would have in Donald Trump a president.

Despite a two-year trend towards normalizing a very ‘unpresidented’ campaign season, election, and candidate, the first 100 days is rounding out with a very bleak view of an illegitimate president and the damage he has already caused.


Special Elections!

Jon Ossoff Finishes First in Georgia Special Election, Still Headed to Run-Off

Democrat Jon Ossoff easily won the most votes in the special election held in Georgia on Tuesday April 18, 2017 for the Congressional seat left vacant by Tom Price (R-Ga), who was tapped by the Trump administration to serve as the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

The district, Georgia’s 6th, is a GOP-dominated area that was supposed to be a safe bet for Republicans. That being said, with 48.1% of the vote, Ossoff fell just short of the 50% threshold required to win the election outright. He will face off against the Republican challenged Karen Handel on June 20th in a run-off election to determine who will win the seat. Nate Silver over at FiveThirtyEight did a great breakdown of what the race results mean.

Parties interested in contributing to his campaign may do so here, or may volunteer with his campaign here.
