Trump Presidency: Tray von Martin's Parents Consider Running For Public Office oballeralert Trayvon Martin’s Parents Consider Running For Public Office - blogged by: @eleven8 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Nearly five years after the death of their son, TrayvonMartin’s parents are considering making a change from within the government. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In an interview with USA Today, SybrinaFulton and TracyMartin say they fear that Trump’s presidency may reverse what little progress and awareness has been made following their son’s death. So to “be part of the change,” they’re considering running for office. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Since Trayvon’s death, we saw how divided the country is on these issues and we saw how the country can come together,” Tracy Martin, Trayvon’s father, told USAToday. “You have those that are for uniting the country and you have those that want to be apart. And what this new presidency does, it takes those that want to be apart and it puts them right in the position where they can say, ‘We’ll change the laws, and we’ll make it tougher.'” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Martin says that he is concerned the new administration will make it easier for law enforcement officials and citizens to justify violence against minorities. Having never considered politics in the past, Sybrina Fulton, Trayvon’s mother, says things have changed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Before I was just comfortable with my average life, but now I feel like I’m just obligated to be part of the change,” Fulton said. “The only way we can be part of the change is if we start with local government and we work our way up.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It could go all the way to the WhiteHouse,” she declared, though it would begin with a bid for, say, city or county commission. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “There’s no limitations,” Martin agreed. “I think once you embark on a journey, you don’t minimize your goal; you want to maximize your goals. So you start on the local level and then you work your way up and hopefully it will take us to a place where we can help more than just local, more than just state. National. That would be the focus.”

Trump Presidency: Dan Rather 8 hrs These are not normal times. These are extraordinary times. And extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures When you have a spokesperson for the president of the United States wrap up a lie in the Orwellian phrase "alternative facts" When you have a press secretary in his first appearance before the White House reporters threaten, bully, lie, and then walk out of the briefing room without the cajones to answer a single question When you have a President stand before the stars of the fallen CIA agents and boast about the size of his crowds (lies) and how great his authoritarian inaugural speech was... These are not normal times. Oballeralert The press has never seen anything like this before The public has never seen anything like this before And the political leaders of both parties have never seen anything like this before What can we do? We can all step up and say simply and without equivocation. "A lie, is a lie, is a lie!" And if someone won't say it, those of us who know that there is such a thing as the truth must do whatever is in our power to diminish the liar's malignant reach into our society. There is one group of people who can do a lot very quickly. And that is Republicans in Congress. Without their support, Donald Trump's presidency will falter So here is what l think everyone in the press must do. If you are interviewing a Paul Ryan, a Mitch McConnell, or any other GOP elected official, the first question must be "what will you do to combat the lying from the White House?" If they dodge and weave, keep with the follow ups. And if they refuse to give a satisfactory answer, end the interview. Facts and the truth are not partisan. They are the bedrock of our democracy. And you are either with them, with us, with our Constitution, our history, and the future of our nation, or you are against it Everyone must answer that question Veteran journalist DanRather calls on Congress to call DonaldTrump out on his lies

Trump Presidency: IF HAVE TO JUMP SIX FEET TO GET THE SAME THING THAT YOU HAVE TO JUMP TWO FEET FOR THAT'S HOW RACISM WORKS. TO BE PRESIDENT OBAMA HAD TO BE SCHOLARLY INTELLIGENT. PRESIDENT OF THE HARVARD LAW REVIEW THE PRODUCT OF SOME OF OUR GREATEST EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. CAPABLE OF TALKING TO TWO DIFFERENT WORLDS. DONALD TRUMP HAD TO BE RICH AND WHITE. THAT'S THE DIFFERENCE. For those of you that would claim Trumps presidency has nothing to do with race . Why isn't BenCarson president he is a world renowned GENIUS neurosurgeon and worth over 20 million but was raised by a single mom in poverty. He picked himself up by the bootstraps and still lost to a man that came from wealth and his ONLY qualification was being white . Where is the lie 🤔 17thsoulja BlackIG17th amerikkkandoublestandard Could anyone other than a male of European decent get elected president with a pending rape case which was dropped , a fraud case which was settled out of court. Three baby mommas and a wife that plagiarized the sitting First Lady with nude photos readily available on the internet ? No need to mention his multiple bankruptcies and absolutely NO experience in public office. 🤔 then he turns around an selects Ben Carson who admittedly is unqualified for public office yet ran for president to the position of Housing and urban development secretary. Just because he's black yet he never lived in public housing himself. Now you see the kind of skewed logic we are dealing with...
