World-famous model, reality TV star, and media mogul Kim Kardashian recently slammed President Trump in a refreshingly piercing interview with Harper’s Bazaar Arabia, taking him to task for his astounding incompetence.
“Not the President now. Anyone can run the US better. My daughter would be better. We’ve worked so hard to get to where we were and to have so many things that we were so proud of in our country, to just literally revert backwards is the most frustrating thing.
Every single day when you can’t really believe what’s going on, the next day it’s something else even more crazy and tragic. It’s really scary, the world that we’re living in now. And when you did feel safe at home, now with Trump in presidency you just don’t feel safe any more.”
She’s not wrong. The presidency of Donald Trump has been characterized by instability and fear; we were contemplating nuclear war just a few weeks ago while immigrant communities live day to day in fear of Trump’s deportation forces. We’ve become so desensitized to the avalanche of disgraceful actions and appalling decisions it’s hard to keep it all in perspective.
And it’s only been six months. We must hold strong and keep resisting.
