A NEW National Embarrassment

When we finally pry Trump out of office–maybe late next year–we will then be left with President Pence, God help us. And Pence will be a different sort of national embarrassment to Americans. He will be able to appear moderately Presidential, but he’ll introduce us to a whole new repertoire, an entirely different set of embarrassments. We will be slathered by the excruciating embarrassment of Christian-right extremism, of flagrant Christian hypocrisy; we’ll be soiled inside, overflowing with the shame of seeing our leader suppressing the rights of millions of Americans–women and gays–wherever he can. Ah–the exquisite mortification that Mike Pence will provide for us.
