Discussion Thread: Trump Despair

We've had two previous Trump Despair threads, first during his transition period, and again during his cabinet nomination process.

Now that we're midway through his first 100 days in office, I thought maybe some of us could use another one.

I am feeling profoundly overwhelmed by the onslaught of troubling news. Every day brings a fresh new hell. With each reminder that Trump's objective is to utterly destroy the federal government, decades of diplomacy, the economy, and everything we value, I feel deeper despair.

And I feel very concerned about the creeping normalizing of all of it.

I am figuring I'm (still) not alone in that. So here is a thread to talk about it, again, for anyone and everyone who needs it.
