Via WaPo: On the same day it was revealed FBI Director James Comey lied or massively overstated how many emails Huma Abedin allegely forwarded to Hillary Clinton, information offered this week during Senate testimony, Not-My-President Trump has announced that he has fired Comey.
While I love anything bad that happens to Comey, it can not be overlooked that Comey was investigating Trump and his associates — this is an unbelievably bold abuse of power, one that I can only assume will haunt Trump.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, our man in the Senate, reached out to the Advocate in order to get a message of hope to despondent LGBTQ+ people in the wake of the election of Donald Trump, who has moved quickly to surround himself with openly anti-gay folks.
Schumer says in the piece:
Keep fighting; keep working; keep pushing for all LGBT Americans, all Muslim Americans, all Americans with disabilities, all Latino Americans, all African-Americans, all white-black-brown working-class Americans struggling to have a fair shot at the American dream. And keep in the back of your head the words preached by the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr: “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”
Our country does change for the better, but not on its own. We worked hard for that progress, and we will expend every ounce of our ingenuity and effort to defend it.
