Yes, a bit of relief and over-met expectations of bleak nothingness. Substance, hope, relief at both the ending of a failed dictatorship (complete with coup), but things went smoothly (other than the unfortunate reality of massive troop presence.)

As for what WE do? a) "Who is WE, Kemosabe?" b) We start at the beginning.
I mean, "we" (the enemy as ID'd by Pogo) is "us" (I am he as you are me as...)

And we are so polarized, fractured, in hardened in belief systems, constantly reinforced by whatever bubbles we inhabit. Some want to return to days of wine & roses, others will never be the same following so much loss of lives, livelihoods, etc. While I know its a cop-out to just throw out tags, cliches, or bumper stickers, as I do too, with my shorthand #MakeAmericaSaneAgain, but truly a first step is self-appraisal and some sort of consensus that WE ALL HURT. Some react in anger, some in denial, and many, many are profoundly depressed & traumatized.

So I don't have "the" answers, beyond opening our eyes and seeing where we were and where we are now, and setting about to work towards re-building society and all that comes with it: confidence in the future, sense of security and personal safety/well-being, and just putting down the #)$^ n weapons and words of hate and division. Of course, "YMMV" individually and regionally, And a huge problem remains which is the media (nee "news") that is constantly promoting discord, anger, and the "big lies". Some of "them" are depressed now too, as not a single lie came true (e.g., Q) and the fact is people are dying "like we've never seen before" And so many reactions co-exist with so much "processing" going on now that the floods of non-stop lies, crises, hate & fear mongering, etc., are paused for at least a few days. (Is it not surreal to have 2 whole days without nonstop lies, calls for hate and blame, and refusal to acknowledge reality at all?)

Well... here we are. Many stages ahead. For many it is mourning. For some it is morning. Most of us will "see what happens" but this time we're being told facts and seeing realistic responses to the existential issues & threats we face now.

Think that about covers it from my POV (as psychologist and American).
History as experienced, summarized, and presented live on The Late Show following the inauguration. 20-Jan-2021
President Biden's Joyful Inauguration Day Felt Like A Return To Normalcy - LIVE MONOLOGUE

A call for unity, lowering of vitriol and blind hate & division... and a pledge to focus on reality, from COVID19 to environment to fractured politics, continuing inequities and injustice, and the need to restore respect for people, for science, for reality.

One of the best days, monologues, and reliefs of our lives. With additional help from J-Lo, Lady Gaga, Foo Fighters, Bernie Sanders' mittens, an amazingly beautiful poem from a 22-year old, a sea of flags, and fireworks. Pure gold, this, following an intense and "different" day.

Cute... A final look at the Trump WH oval office, by Lilly Singh, "A Little Late" show.
Here is Lilly appearing as the clean-up crew this morning. Not so far-fetched, really... :))

Cleaning Out Donald Trump’s Oval Office

#TrumpVirus #Inauguration2021 #12121 (Palindrome!) #responsibility #MakeAmericaSaneAgain #StaySafe #LillySingh
Surprise surprise... No drained swamp shall go un-corrupted for long.
Hours before leaving office, Trump undoes one of the only measures he took to ‘drain the swamp’

Delighted to say, my last reference to Trump while he's stil playing the role - badly - of 'President'!

#corruption #trumpvirus #draintheswamp #MakeAmericaSaneAgain.
Ah, the feeling that we are human still, amid #TrumpVirus

MSNBC hosts and guests break down in tears as an American leader finally acknowledges the country's grief

Yes, "healing', now that the biggest of knives has stopped cutting. Time to reflect, remember, mourn, and make better.

#COVID19 #TrumpVirusDeathToll400K (and skyrocketing in the U.S.) - "so much winning".

And to complete a harmonious triad of end-of-term, following Colbert/Melania's Broadway sendoff, and "Slip-Sliding Away".....

“Donald Trump could be holding a gun and standing over the body”… and still get away. One comment.
Many others saying they can’t believe there are still some who would NOT follow their oath and vote to impeach.

#corruption “like nobody’s ever seen before”
This. Puro. Bravo, Colbert.

A focused and sincere, passionate summary of USA today. With some reality reminders about "unity" and "blame".
The FBI offers reassurance that the rioters & coup organizers, from trespassers to murderers, will be caught and charged.

FBI: The MAGA Maniacs Who Tried To Overthrow The Government Are Going To Pay

#Sedition #Corruption #TrumpVirus #coup #StaySafe #Colbert #MakeAmericaSaneAgain
IMHO it would be extremely beneficial were he to put this one side of his mouth’s words into reality.
Beyond the “we need to heal” chant (and it’s true of course), were McConnell to call in the Senate Thursday and make it a done deal, the upcoming ugliness may be even more frenzied, but then… over. No more Trump, no worries about the beginnings of a Biden term - other than his and our security, and an unimpeded FBI mega-effort to gather all the seditionists and rioters and hold a war-crimes level series of trials. Ugly surely, and still in the midst of a pandemic being impeded by lack of organized government effort and punitive roadblocks from Trump Org & friends…

Thin sliced: Pop the cyst now, drain the Drumpf puss, venom & bile, jail the criminals, and then start afresh.
Yup. Cruz and Hawley should both resign or be impeached/tried for sedition. Full stop.

Houston Chronicle: Resign, Senator Cruz. Your Lies Cost Lives

#TedCruz #Hawley #corruption #sedition #MakeAmericaSaneAgain
That's my public advocate! (past position, now NYS AG)
2019 prediction #2: It's not Mueller and impeachment which will hold accountable; it's SDNY & Letitia James

With that in mind, and the stench of sedition and mob thuggery still fresh... this was nice to read... and see quantified! (only 67?)

Happy New Year! It will commence within the next few weeks. We here in the US are on "dotard" time, but we're awakening!

And as I just posted, and it's clearly in this realm... Could this be? Google acts in the public interest... ?!
(or is it only that they don't own Parler?) As Hannity is encouraging fellow trump cultists to head to Parler....

Google bans Parler app and Apple could do the same after Capitol Hill attack

Meanwhile, says the Twitterverse, "Hannity is pushing people to join Parler..."

Welcome to Trumpworld, the epilogue....

Hm. Would be interesting and tempt me for the second time (first time was for the search engine) to have something good to say about Google. Are they actually doing something for the common good of society? (or is it only that they don't own Parler?)

Google bans Parler app and Apple could do the same after Capitol Hill attack

Meanwhile, says the Twitterverse, "Hannity is pushing people to join Parler..."

Just this:


Thank you G-d and Twitter... Perhaps five years too late, but better late than never.

#news #corruption #psychopathology #trumpvirus #twitter #sedition [ "Sedition!" ] #MakeAmericaSaneAgain

He did it!! Thank you #RandyRainbow!

Another Fiddler classic here, and oh so perfect. Perfectly horrid & true.

To the tune of Fiddler on the Roof, "Tradition"...


#MakeAmericaSaneAgain Stop #trumpvirus #music #theatre #parody #satire #news #corruption #sedition #StaySafe
No arrests yet of the top coup leaders (those in the selfies, vids, and tweets)...
The FBI certainly has the evidence to identify and isolate these #trumpvirus spreaders and felons.

But some were hoping for, and got this:

Twitter permanently removes pro-Trump lawyer Lin Wood from platform


Stop the #TrumpVirus
#TrumpVirusDeathToll365K - and still not noticed by Lord Stablegenius, not acknowledged, and zero concern for victims (ever)

Revolution #1

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out ....

And.... One Civil War was enough!

#MakeAmericaSaneAgain #music #musica #musique #Beatles #classicrock
You seem to have ID'd it, tnx. It was just something I read/heard in a gushing stream of input. As I just said in Twitter-world, I too am impressed by the excellent media coverage - split screen Houses of Congress live (again now), on-site cameras and reporters and onscreen analysis by principles and experts....

What most gives me optimism and hope is that so many people are watching this all happening, in realtime, Civil War II, a Trump-produced alternate-reality event.

The good part for me is that as rotten, corrupt, etc. as is the caus(es) for this situation are, in the 'here and now' our country is beginning to wake up from the spell and seeing how real things have become - and there's still a killer pandemic out there killing 3-4K/Americans a day with an official policy of "no policy, enjoy".

Thin-sliced: For me the most energizing/hopeful thing is: Americans are watching and shaking off the cobwebs of too much lying-distraction-and "sweet-talking".
Americans are finally waking up. #WakeUp #Focus #MakeAmericaSaneAgain

Lawmakers call for Trump's impeachment or invoking 25th Amendment in wake of Capitol Hill violence

Sen. Schumer - live now - saying this will go down as one of the darkest days in US history - and putting the blame squarely on Trump. As McConnell called the crowd (not its leader) "unhinged". And onward.... They are proceeding in an effort to have a country.

✓CNN too. Coverage is good (so much live to see!) But the situation? Surreal.
This is happening in America? Civil War 2? #MakeAmericaSaneAgain
Last-ditch assault on America, democracy, rule of law, sanity, civility, and humanity...

AP news report, live Wednesday afternoon:

US Capitol locked down as Trump supporters clash with police

Stop the #trumpvirus
And now, today's reality-TV version of America.... Buckle up.
Stay safe. Stay (or get) sane! (Speaking to you, Jim Jordan, Ted Cruz, crazies on the streets)

Series finale has begun.

Protesters swarm to Capitol, halt session on Biden victory

#TrumpVirusDeathToll360K (and skyrocketing, due to a policy of having no central policy)
Stop the #trumpvirus and the tinfoil-hat-wearing superspreaders
From somewhere between Woody Allen's "Bananas" and most any Fellini movie. But real. And concerning. The Trump finale, in sum.

#TrumpVirusDeathToll364K and climbing quickly (3-4000 dying every single day! As "government" STILL ignores it, Federally).
Stop the #TrumpVirus disease and #corruption
"Not a crook".... in fact "terrific people on both sides" of the prison bars thus far. But now, corruption & crime "like we've never seen"!

#trumpvirus #corruption #MakeAmericaSaneAgain
It's almost tangible...

Countdown to Inauguration


And more...

We still have work to do in order to heal and define reality of now and common goals for a better future post #trumpvirus.
First step: #MakeAmericaSaneAgain #TrumpVirusDeathToll303K in US, and skyrocketing. Elsewhere too. #StaySafe

Daily brief / cartoon by Walt Handelsman- “Plug Pulled”

One more bigly delusion and denial of reality, gone down the drain.
Imagine when the non-stop stream of toxic lies and the denial/refutation of reality cease and healing and life can proceed… Jan 20.
Sanity ahead, if we work together to join agains common enemies rather than ourselves or our shared reality.

#trumpvirus #election2020 #MakeAmericaSaneAgain
So.... what else is a poor lame-duck devil-in-chief to do?

Trump Tries to Kill Covid Relief

Of course. #TrumpVirusDeathToll303K and skyrocketing (up!), at a rate now of over 3,000 day! (One 9/11 disaster every day!) - with no effort and management beyond bragging and spreading hate & distrust, lies and #trumpvirus .... To EmperorStableGenius, it's a 'hoax'. Which he has saved us from with "his" vaccine against the imaginary pandemic he allowed to blossom. 3000+ die each day.

:)) Do you think there will be any orange tears shed (or more like, 'I guess that saves me $20K/day for his expert legal defense effort...' ?) Poor #DiaperDon *
*a trending tag on Twitter There's nobody left to blame, pardon, or infect...

Very seriously, Lord #trumpvirus and friends are ravishing this entire country with the lies, disinformation, affirmation/enabling of #MoscowMitch and friends, and of course the propaganda on all those screens, from Fox to Newsmax, Parler to DJT.

#TrumpVirusDeathToll280K and skyrocketing as if that's the "plan" for Trumperica

Trump is Reportedly Very Sad and Depressed and Rarely Shows Up for Work Anymore

Poor baby... not enough (positive) attention? The victim of insidious dark forces and conspiracies?

The saddest parts:
1) Half the population describes Trump's behavior like a teacher or parent explains why baby/toddler is frustrated, or angry, or just being himself maybe.... 2) With a mental and moral age clearly in sync with that personality, he has been allowed to be the executive in charge of all the powers of America, sycophants replacing the professionals ... 3) He is still there, completely ignoring the #trumpvirus death toll - or igniting and super-spreading it - while protesting that he's not getting enough credit, dark forces &/or deep states have it in for him, etc. 4) Like a wounded animal (or ego), he's doing as much damage as possible (like Nero fiddling) as he fans flames of hate, virus, and division. His focus is on self-preserving "the brand" & getting revenge.

As always, he his narratives, mood and realities swing/split from one extreme to the other. Facts are irrelevant unless they're 'terrific'.
If he is seen as sad &/or "depressed" now (or stewing & in denial of "losing") he will return, enraged, you can be sure. "Counter-punching" (or swinging at air). Blaming, denying his virus death toll still. Reality is a hoax! "Only I can save us", Lord #StableGenius

Psychologists I know have not enjoyed watching - or experiencing - much of the past four years.
But it has been a vivid demonstration of #psychology in action: #media #personality, #clinical & #social.

"It is what it is".

I'm thinking (here in NYC) it will be 10 days/2 weeks now until hospitals feel/know the load.
Suddenly our mayor has decided to ignore his guidelines and re-open schools, saying on local TV it's the safest place kids can be. So, a prisoner here since March myself, I'm thinking the massive in/out Thanksgiving mass spreading will be fully developed just before Christmas, at which time the "spike within the spike" will spike once again.by New Year's. Unless we... #MakeAmericaSaneAgain

Nice overview on the global perspective. (My mantra, you know: "Context and perspective") :)) #StaySafe
Maybe it's all a hoax? A lot of people say.....
So sad. Unnecessary.

‘It’s frightening. It’s insane’: Fort Lauderdale bars packed with mask-less partygoers

Here is a portrait of a large group of super-spreaders, many of whom will not be with us next Thanksgiving, and who will create whole hotspots wherever they go from here.
Stay safe.

3 minutes of stark, grim reality, at the top of tonight's CBS network news. Comments are lighting up Twitter, basically saying this is, sadly, indeed a clear snapshot worthy of a time capsule. Hopefully buried along with the #trumpvirus very soon.

"America" is self-destructing. With a lot of help from friends of the Devil... and ignorance, denial, disinformation & "accelerants".

Trump campaign to request recount of two Wisconsin counties

Thin-slice: Trump has scaled down his meritless lawsuits to save money as campaign funs are further depleted - after he already diverted funds to himself and is now swindling/conning the public - again - in setting up "election" defense funds which benefit... him.)
