‘Pick Your F**king Battles’ – Activist Danielle Muscato DESTROYS Trump In Tweetstorm
(Liberal America) – In contrast with the Trump campaign, Hillary Clinton’s was too bright and delusional. The last signs of a centrist Liberal party, which will (should) disappear if they become more progressive. Some would say that is the reason she lost the election to Trump. But, she was right about Trump when she said that he would be baited with a tweet. Here’s Songify This’ goof on Trump’s Twitter outrage.
It was assumed that his twitter rage would stop after the election but it hasn’t. He’s on the same tirade, lashing out at Saturday Night Live even, more than once. But a civil rights activist went after him on his own stomping grounds.

Trump Administration’s Islamophobia Paints A Target On America’s Back
(Liberal America) – It should be noted here that in no way is this saying that the anti-Muslim message from Trump, his supporters, and his incoming administration is stirring up acts of terrorism from Muslims in our communities. The targeting of Muslims and mosques from these guys is not supported and I condemn it. As a matter of fact, I’ll beat the fuck out of an anti-Muslim fascist. By the incoming regime taking a macho attitude against terrorism, rather than a pragmatic approach; they’re putting us in harm’s way over protecting America.
