Do not "normalize" the abhorrent

Here's an important statement from Sen. Harry Reid on Nov. 11 that we need to remember now:

Every news piece that breathlessly obsesses over inauguration preparations compounds their fear by normalizing a man who has threatened to tear families apart, who has bragged about sexually assaulting women and who has directed crowds of thousands to intimidate reporters and assault African Americans. Their fear is legitimate and we must refuse to let it fall through the cracks between the fluff pieces.

And also:

If this is going to be a time of healing, we must first put the responsibility for healing where it belongs: at the feet of Donald Trump, a sexual predator who lost the popular vote and fueled his campaign with bigotry and hate.

Don't adopt a business-as-usual stance with regard to this presidency.  

Protest his actions and work for change in 2018 and 2020.
