Inauguration Watch: Four Years of Trump Won’t Be Any Worse Than the Civil War


Chuck Schumer says we’re celebrating the peaceful transfer of power today. Then more blather. Now he’s rather obviously implying that four years of Donald Trump probably won’t be any worse than the four years of the Civil War. We survived that, so hey, we’ll get through Trump too.

I think that deserves another cat.
