I ran across this picture on Twitter, and I knew immediately that it was everything. It perfectly captures the entire essence of the sad national debacle we find ourselves in right now. Everyone in it symbolizes some huge force that is propelling this country towards the horrible choice between Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, or seppuku. Especially including all the people who are smiling and taking pictures with their cell phones.
I don’t know who took the picture, only that it allegedly occurred at a Trump rally, which seems like a legit explanation of the context, given the proliferation of red hats. I got it from this tweet. I asked the guy who tweeted it, and he did not know who took it, either. If anyone knows, let me know and I will give them credit.
Yeccchhhh. It gets more difficult to maintain a sense of optimism for the future of this country every day.
