As most Americans continue to be horrified by the prospect of a Donald Trump presidency, his selections for Cabinet positions bring to mind Hillary Clinton’s description of his supporters.
“A basket of deplorables” is what she called them, a true remark for which she took a lot of heat. It’s pretty clear that what we’re going to get for his Cabinet falls into three chilling categories: corporate billionaires; military generals; and climate change deniers.
I’m very disappointed.
During the presidential campaign, quite a number of celebrities promised to leave the country if Donald Trump won the election. If you google “celebrities who promised to leave the country if Trump wins,” you will get a large number of lists from s variety of sources. Some lists contain as many as 23 names.
The lists include Barbara Streisand, Miley Cyrus and Whoopi Goldberg. I would be glad to wish them “good riddance.”

The only thing it proves to me is that when you educate an idiot -- all you get is an educated idiot.
