Count your blessings.
One of many I have at the Hermitage is I don't have television.
So I didn't have to watch the disgusting show that pretended to be a presidential debate.
I would never get that time back -- an important measurement as I get older.
But I need to say, or write, that a failure to to condemn white supremacy is the grossest thing I've ever seen a U.S. president do.
I've ready plenty of U.S. history and there are many grotesque moments, from the Federalists to the Democrat Republicans to the Whigs to the No-Nothings to Republicans to Democrats.
But giving support to the nascent Proud Boys makes me want to vomit all over America.
Like all racists, they hide. I've written before about how the KKK hid behind white masks and modern racists hide behind fake names on social media. In the case of the Proud Boys, they hide behind dog whistle language, winks and nods.
Were they truly proud, they would come out and say what they are: white supremacists.
And the president has shown his colors once again.
Peace and equality unto all of my brothers and sisters.
