Just going to keep a tally of the hate crimes, death and suffering inspired by president Trump I hear about here

November 9: My cousin cries all day.

November 9: Eight young trans people commit suicide. (Twitter.)

November 10: One Ashley Boyer reports being threatened by four white men while pumping gas, brandishing firearms and saying they would kill her if there were no witnesses, asking how scared she is. (Twitter.)

As I don't have the slightest access to information nor stomach necessary to do this work, I'm going to leave it to the competent. I'll just conclude an institution that will allow someone like Trump a leadership position is one I cannot, as someone who believes in the sanctity of human life, trust.
