John Lewis' comment somehow appealed to spooked-and-riled liberals, legitimising their whole, "He is not my president!" movement. (I keep hearing this commercial on NPR, where some girl says, "The fact that [Trump] won is NOT OK - it just shows how close-minded America is!" But the irony is that this girl is exibitting the very close-mindedness which she is hating on). Lewis' comment may comfort liberals, despite its inherent cognitive dissonance, but how long ago - do we remember - did THIS OTHER, 'pre-Trump', comment appear in the news?...

The problem isn't black. The problem isn't white. The problem is big, old, whiplashing ego's, mainly of the baby-boomerism type.
That worm keeps turning. Self-inflicting wounds. Trouble for Trouble's sake.
If we could only forgive as quickly as we forget.
